Happy Birthday to my sweet, sweet Lillia. It seems almost impossible to believe it’s been eight years since I first met those wide, wondering eyes of yours. And yet, here we are. In the past year you endured many changes; a new school, a new house, and a new baby brother. You have done it all with grace. I have so much to learn from you, and I love you so much.
There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream,
The earth, and every common sight
To me did seem
Apparelled in celestial light,
The glory and the freshness of a dream.
~ William Wordsworth
