There is no night without a dawning
No winter without a spring
And beyond the dark horizon
Our hearts will once more sing…
For those who leave us for a while
Have only gone away
Out of a restless, care worn world
Into a brighter day.~ Helen Steiner Rice, American writer, inspirational and Christian poetry
Dallas, September 2016
This would have been Dallas’s 16th birthday (2006-2020). Rest well, my Sheltie angel!
It’s your birthday to-day, so why are we waiting?
Without further delay, Let’s start celebrating.
~Norman Wesley Brooks, 1967 (U.S. design engineer)
Happy Birthday to my little Monkey!! One year old today!
Grown don’t mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child. They get bigger, older, but grown? What’s that supposed to mean? In my heart it don’t mean a thing. ~Toni Morrison, Beloved, 1987
Who loves us
In spite of our
Flaws and prickliness.
The one who gave us life
And sacrificed her own hopes
To keep us happy, safe, and clean.
How can we ever thank her enough?
But perhaps she doesn’t need repayment.

Sprung from the same womb
Competitors for too long
Now we’ve become friends.
Note: Happy Birthday to my sister and friend!
Happy Happy Birthday to the cutest little senior dog in the world!!

My dearest son:
May your thoughts be as glad as the shamrocks.
May your heart be as light as a song.
May each day bring you bright happy hours,
That stay with you all year long. ~ Irish Blessing
Love you forever!
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life’s passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!
— Irish Blessing

Because today is special. Can you guess why??
