Happy Birthday Dear Heart!

As fast as thou shalt wane so fast thou grow'st,
In one of thine, from that which thou departest,
And that fresh blood which youngly thou bestow'st,
Thou mayst call thine, when thou from youth convertest,
Herein lives wisdom, beauty, and increase,
Without this folly, age, and cold decay,
If all were minded so, the times should cease,
And threescore year would make the world away:
Let those whom nature hath not made for store,
Harsh, featureless, and rude, barrenly perish:
Look whom she best endowed, she gave thee more;
Which bounteous gift thou shouldst in bounty cherish:
She carved thee for her seal, and meant thereby,
Thou shouldst print more, not let that copy die.
~ Shakespeare, sonnet 11

Jeny, that's is a beautiful picture of my beautiful sisters.

Happy birthday to you, too! I didn't realize our birthdays were so close in proximity. How blessed you are to be a May baby! It's such a wonderful month to enter the world...and the world is such a lovelier place because you did!


P.S. I adore the picture of you two sisters. It radiates love.

I see from the comments you have a birthday too. Happy Birthday to you. I love all your pictures. We do not have a specific name for our baby yet. Probably Matthew as the 1st name after my husband, but not sure on middle. Possibly Evan? Baby & I are doing well. Ella is 5 weeks from her 2nd birthday. It's going to be a fun summer.
