Happy Birthday ARIA




I'd bake you a "Crown Jewel" cake



And give you some flowers too


and then I would share this poem by John Ciardi :


"I want to tell you a gentlest thing,

like light to you- like old faces being fed a good memory from inside themselves-

like eyes that do not watch but slowly meet across a room

in which everyone is and

no one need hurry to what he is sure of.


I want to say before we run out of rooms

and everyone

that I am slowest, surest, gentlest too

across whatever room

I look at you."


Happy, Happy Birthday Aria.

May all good things surround you and fill your life with joy.


I love you!

Mom
