Quinn's 8th Birthday

On her birthday, she gets up early for the "Birthday Set-Up".  We gather things from around the house and arrange all her cards and presents on the table.  Usually, I find a verse or poem that reminds me of her and write it out for her as part of the set up.  This year, Jim and I wrote our own poems for her.

For Quinn...

A force of nature I will be
Creating all in front of me
Like wind and rain and sun I mold
As life around me does unfold
A rock, a tree, a mountain high
The years ahead and those gone by
On mother earth I set my feet
Preparing for all that I shall meet
