When I'm 84!

When I grow up to be 84, I want to be as beautiful as my friend, Millie Garfield!

Here's wishing you a very delightful birthday full of good surprises.

We love ya!

Though the entire poem from Carl Sandburg from whence this quote originates was not quite so pretty, I love these last few lines:

I would rather have been a tall sunflower
Living in a country garden
Lifting a golden-brown face to the summer,
Rain-washed and dew-misted,
Mixed with the poppies and ranking hollyhocks,
And wonderingly watching night after night
The clear silent processionals of stars.

Thanks for that beautiful birthday cake and those lines from the Sandberg poem.

So lovely!

I love you all too.!
