I hope you Dance

“I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small
When you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Loving might be a mistake
But it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart
Leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Give the heavens above
More than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance”

Today my baby girl turns 26. Where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday that I came downstairs to make Brad some breakfast before he left for his early shift at work…. 5am…. and as he got ready to leave the house, my water broke, right then and there on the kitchen floor. 6 hours later my baby girl was born. Time may pass but my memory of that day is like it happened yesterday. One of the happiest days of my life….. Named after her Grandma Kiera…. Meagan Kiera was a chubby 8.5 pound baby girl 10 days overdue and full of life.

As a Mother I have many hopes and dreams for my daughter but today …..I hope you dance

This week’s sketch at Let’s Scrap was for a card so here is my take on the sketch.

Til next time… Enjoy!
