The End of a Birthday - A Wordful Wednesday


A card labeled “Mom,” sitting there on the shelf
With his beautiful little handwriting, a present in itself





Flowers from a lover, husband & dear friend
All the beautiful colors of a
love that’ll never end



A dinner celebration at a quaint & charming spot
A
gourmet paradise, no other place could top


A hidden treasure nestled in a beautiful little town
A boy taking after his momma,
exploring what’s around



To add more sweetness to a most lovely night
Shared among
family, a confectioner’s delight


So all in all a happy birthday indeed
It feels
so good to be only 23!!
37

So happy you had such a wonderful celebration!So, I have an idea for your next video - you know, ala your AI, running man audition tape. You should totally start rapping your Wordful Wednesdays! Seriously, you have fabulous rhyming skills and those skills need to be showcased. We could even come up with a saucy rapper name like...Stephalicious. Ha!
