Happy 4th Birthday, Gianna!
I am so grateful your birthday enjoyment was not dependent on how much sleep your mom has had in the last week, or whether we spent the morning shopping for your birthday dinner or the afternoon in a cleaning frenzy.
It didn’t depend on flowers hanging from the living room ceiling…
Or on a garden being planted on your cake…
Or what favors we had for your guests.
It was good because you knew it was Your Day, and because you know everyone is so glad you were born.
I love you, daughter.
