I am so proud of how you've grown up; how mature you are; how you've turned your experiences into lessons-learned; how you always move forward, ever-fighting; how you cheer others on; how your fire rages and burns on for others; how generous you are with your light and heat; how your love extends to all, and yet you maintain boundaries; how your passion and ingenuity liken to sipping from the Fountain of Youth; how your care of the details isn't forgotten and your ever-reaching hand of care is always- politely- offered- you are a friend to treasure!

My darling girl,
You and I-
We are so different;
And yet, we care for each other so-

Thank you for your care.
Thank you for your box o goodies.
Thank you for the wolf-cub that grins at me;
And through his teeth juts out a blade of grass.
He makes me giggle;
And remember that Someone Else's joy,
Is powerful enough to be my strength.

And my smile will be supported by that Divine promise.
And I will smile to you in thanks;
Thanks for reminding me of such a strong truth.

Thank you for being strong for me.
