Forever Young

Dear Dani,
Sometimes, when I'm searching for the perfect words for a specific situation, I find them already written - in lyrics. The other night, I was working late in my scraproom and this song came on, and I thought, "I need to make a Dani page with these lyrics." Tonight I downloaded it... it's on our iTunes now so you can listen to it when you read this. I couldn't say it better.

I love you! You make being a Mom my life's joy.
I'm so proud of the young woman you've become...
of the way you handle the big stuff, and the way you
don't let the little stuff bog you down. You are more confident
about who you are and what you believe and what you stand for
at fifteen than I was at ... 30. You're amazing. You don't give yourself
enough credit. Oh yah. I was gonna let the song talk for me, wasn't I?
OK... log on to iTunes and listen to "Forever Young" by Rod Stewart.
One more thing.
You are ROCKIN' that new haircut!

Love you, Daughterre.

May the good lord be with you
Down every road you roam
And may sunshine and happiness
Surround you when youre far from home
And may you grow to be proud
Dignified and true
And do unto others
As you'd have done to you
Be courageous and be brave
And in my heart youll always stay
Forever young,
May good fortune be with you
May your guiding light be strong
Build a stairway to heaven
With a prince or a vagabond
And may you never love in vain
And in my heart you will remain
Forever young,
And when you finally fly away
Ill be hoping that I served you well
For all the wisdom of a lifetime
No one can ever tell
But whatever road you choose
Im right behind you, win or lose
Forever young, forever young
Forever young ,forever young
Forever young, forever young
For, forever young, forever young
(lyrics by r. stewart/j.cregan/k.savigar)

OH my gosh, that's the song from my high school graduation! Every time I hear it I think of who I was as a teen! Thanks for bringing me a fun memory! Dani is really growing up even from 2 years ago when we "met". You are indeed blessed to have such a wonderful relationship with your daughter!
