Best Birthday Wish I Have Ever Heard

Today was the Big Party Day. I do not have enough energy to write about it yet. But I want to record this birthday wish that Lucas received from one of his very best friends in the world. It is perhaps the most wonderful birthday wish ever wished.

From Snow (8 years old) to Lucas on the occasion of his sixth birthday:

“I hope the sun will keep you warm. I hope the moon will guide your way and every twinkling star. I hope the wind will keep you calm. I hope the water will be there when you need it. I hope the fire will make you strong. I hope the earth will make peace in your life. I hope you will always be safe with your family.”

I can add only this: Me too. Thank you. Amen.

    Yay!! Thank you for posting that, I was so busy with the hussle and bustle of readying the children I never got to see Snow’s gifts to Lucas. I’m all weepy, that is the bestest birthday blessing ever!
    Everything went wonderfully, pat yourself on the back!
    I love you sweetie.
