Thirty

My beautiful friend Darci wrote this poem for my thirtieth birthday tomorrow.  I have her permission to share it with you.  




just look at you

strong
smart
beautiful 
and so damn tall

thirty

there it sits
like a period 
marking a new 
breath 

the next breath will show us

how frankly, funnily, 
fightingly, stubbornly, 
scientifically, lovingly
you are going to 

live

  2. Happy Birthday, Heather - one day late. Hope your day brought you lots of smiles, hugs, and love. Your day will forever be emblazened on my mind - my little grandson Eli now shares your same birthday! God Bless you.
    Love, Auntie Karen
