On the night you were born,
the moon smiled with such wonder
that the stars peeked in to see you
and the night whispered,
"Life will never be the same."
Because there had never been anyone like you...
ever in the world.
For never before in story or rhyme
(not even once upon a time)
has the world ever known a you, my friend,
and it never will, not ever again...
Heaven blew every trumpet
and played every horn
and the wonderful, marvelous
night you were born.
(From the book On the Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman)
On Friday little A turned one!
Oh how fast time flies!
Our Shining Light (her name meaning).
My little True.
Mama loves you.
