Birthday Poem for Cayley’s 11th Birthday

Happy birthday to my sweet girl Cayley

she’s now eleven thus no longer a baby.

An adventurous girl always looking for fun,

while keeping her dad and I quiet young.

The youngest of the girls by ten years

makes her seem older to many of our peers.

She has had many intriguing obsessions*

each of which creates perpetual questions.

She’s may be growing up in the information age

but she still reads books by turning a page.

She is special in so many ways

I thank God for her each and every day.

I Love you Cayley

You’re becoming quiet a young lady.

    Moz,
    We missed having you here to celebrate. You are such an encourager and hold a special place in Cayley’s life. Mrs. Teresa joined us for crawfish and was certain you would have been there 🙂 I told her how close you were to coming. Have a joyous Easter celebration. We love you. Cayley’s laryngitis got better after eating spicy crawfish.

    Thanks mom. Cayley is a true cajun wanting crawfish for her birthday, which were really spicy. She however was one of the last ones to stop eating them as she enjoyed them so. Hope you are feeling better and that you will make a visit soon. Sending our love.
