Happy Happy Birthday
Miss Shannon Victoria!
I am so proud of the
wonderful awesome person you are.
Your outer Child may grow but
you will always have
your inner Child

The reluctance to put away
 childish things may be 
a requirement of genius.

Tomorrow be Today

Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
Tomorrow be today.

Free and Easy

If you only get to go around one time
I'm gonna sit back and try to enjoy the ride
I could make a million or wind up broke
Free and easy down the road I go
Can't take it with you when you go so
Free and easy down the road I go
Someday I know it's gonna take me home so
Free and easy down the road I go
~ Dierks Bentley~

Don't Wait

Infuse your life with action.
 Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen.
 Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love.
 And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator,
 not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high,
 but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself,
 right now, right down here on Earth. 
~Bradley Whitford~
