A Party


Today is a wonderful day.
Ollie Faith turns one!
One!

 
I was happy and a tad scared.
Truth be told, I was a whole lot scared.
Now, after watching her get through
her open heart surgery 
and seeing her winning hearts
and changing minds 
about the stereotypes of Down Syndrome,
all my fear is gone.
In it's place
is joy, joy, joy
and tons of thankfulness.
You prayed for this sweet baby.
You celebrated her arrival 
and her victory of
her successful heart surgery.
I know you love her too.
Please, head on over to Annie's blog
and give her a birthday greeting.
Tonight's a big party
with her family.
Pa Stuart has to drive 20 hrs. round trip
to pick up a semi for the farm and
has to miss the party.
He had to get his birthday hugs in last night.
Ollie Faith wasn't happy to hear the news ;)

Aww that face, those little hands...

Happy Birthday Sweet Miss O.!!
You are my sunshine,
my Ollie sunshine.
You make me happy,
when skies are gray.
You'll never know dear,
how much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.
