Happy Birthday Melissa


Your arrival changed our lives forever.

You made us parents.

You made us a family.

You made us grandparents.

Have a great birthday!

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit out or dance
I hope you dance!

I Hope You Dance
as sung by Lee Ann Womack
