forever young

Sunday, October 13, 2013

Two days ago, it was the International Day of the Girl. I'm a bit late because I felt there was so much I wanted to say. About my dreams for this girl of mine and what I hope she will learn. As I listened to C sing her one of her favorite songs before her nap today, I realized Bob Dylan had already said everything my heart felt.  And this song is especially special to our family because we listened to it over and over again while I was pregnant with her. It was the song we played in the car when we brought both our babies home from the hospital. My heart still aches a happy ache every single time I hear it because I hope and pray every single day that my children know just how much I love them. I need them to know that. I need them to know that I want the world for them, and I know they were born to do great things. 
May God bless and keep you always. May your wishes all come true.
May you always do for others and let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars and climb on every rung.
May you stay forever young.
May you grow up to be righteous. May you grow up to be true.
May you always know the truth and see the lights surrounding you.
May you always be courageous, stand upright and be strong.
May you stay forever young.
May your hands always be busy, may your feet always be swift.
May you have a strong foundation when the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful, may your song always be sung.
May you stay forever young.
Forever young, forever young.
May you stay forever young.

    1. You should listen to the song. I tear up about half the time. Used to be every single time!
