Keegan's 10th Birthday

Keegan's 10th birthday in Paris! Just where he wanted to be. On the birthday eve, we celebrated in our flat with a fruit cake and a poetry reading. All of our family that was in Paris with us had written a poem for Keegan. It was a wonderful night.


Uncle Devin took his turn. It was a funny one, and Keegan has me read it over and over.

EuroDisney on June 4.


Keegan gets to be with Ryland, one of the greatest gifts of all.

Each poem was so special. Each person wrote their poem in a book that Keegan keeps by his bedside and asks me to read each one when I tuck him in.

For Keegan from mom....

There's a light that is shining in my heart
The light is a fire that my soul did start

The fire is fueled with deeds of courage, wisdom and with love
I lit the fire and keep it burning, this is who I am proud of

When I reach a crossroads and choose the way to go
The fire inside can guide me, if I feel its glow
Sometimes I may not choose its path, and ergo the fire may dim
Then I will know to gather sticks and stoke the fire's brim

I'll burn it bright and hot and true and remember what is inside me
This is the me I know and love, it is the bona-fide me!

I'll burn it bright and hot and true and treasure my quintessence
This is the me I know and love, it is my luminescence!

Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to
know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
