Birthday dedicated to my daughter!

Dedicated to my daughter!

Happy Birthday Cupcake!
No words can express just
how much I love you and how
much you have taught me
over your thirty two years of life!
A patient sweet child who stood 
beside me at five while my mom 
was dying. Kindly visiting another
lonely old woman in the adjacent bed!
You have been such a treasure over 
the years! One I over indulged while
growing up, but has repaid my 
love and kindness ten fold since!
The hearts were digitally created out of my acrylic painting!
 You have given me true unconditional
 love over the years. Which I cherish
 more than you will every know! I hope
 you never feel underappreciated for
  all that you are and  do!
I love how much you appreciate a simple
day, a walk, preparing a good meal, 
 planting a few flowers,a giggle, taking a
 photo and watching a good flick!
 You enjoy simple beauty with such gratitude!
It's a blessing to observe!

I love how you value a dollar and can
stretch it into ten with your couponing 
skills! Your gratitude towards anything
you've won or been given since you 
were two goes beyond measure!
It seems you were born thankful!
I love this arty photo Cupcake took when she received a complimentary lipstick!
We are different in so many ways,
yet the same too!  You've been such
 a gift to my life. Helping me to see 
the world just a little differently! 
You've made me a better person!

The big surprise is what a homebody
you have become over the years!
From a teen who had no desire to 
cook, to a woman who creates new
innovative meals! One who sews,
paints up old furniture, and
 takes photos daily!
You have truly grown into a woman
of substance with a humanitarian heart!
Loving, beyond words! You have so much
compassion for others yet great 
boundaries for the energy vampires!
All the above hearts were created from the following paintings!
It amazes me how all the people you
 befriended as a child have became 
amazing adults! Your childhood
 intuition for surrounding yourself
with exemplary people went 
above and  beyond! A lesson that 
personally took me years!! 

The best part of my day is when I
hear you and Beardo giggling!
 I love it when you send me photos
like the one above to make smile!
Original acrylic painting!
Silly fun things excite you! Like watching
 cartoons in bed. Drinking out of a plastic
 troll cup! Playing a  game of mario,
 getting something free in the mail,
 running in a patch of sunflowers, or
 saying hello to  a Llama!!! Even though
 you had to grow up sooner than
 normal, thankfully you managed to
 keep the child inside alive! Something 
we have in common even though
 I don't like cartoons!!
In all the right moments you are
a wise and serious adult! You 
see beyond the flaws to the 
the heart of people! You don't
excuse bad behavior, or even
surround yourself with it!
However you do try to 
understand it! Your
compassion is beyond most!
 I love you so much darling daughter,
and feel so blessed by our close friendship.
There are no words to Thank you  enough,
for all that you do for me daily! How caring,
loving and thoughtful you are with me!
You deserve amazing things in your
 life everyday! I'm wishing you all
your hearts desires, a life filled 
with joy and love everyday!
Happy Thirty second Birthday Darling!

What are some of your quirky guilty pleasures?

That lipstick picture looks great! Happy birthday to your dear Cupcake. You are lucky to have her as your daughter, but then she is lucky to have you as her mother! Happy PPF!

Faye said...

Just a note of explanation, Sherrie. I gave away art stuff I had not looked at in months or maybe even years. I am keeping most of my things like watercolors, water soluble oil paints, acrylics, good brushes, papers, etc. You get the picture. Just thinning out.

June Walker said...

Happy birthday cupcake! I love that smiley alpaca!

This is a lovely post. I would also say how lucky Cupcake is to have you as a mother who shows how much she loves her in this way (and I am sure in many other ways too).
