and the child that, unfortunately, is the "test drive parenting" child!
Well, I made this card with my Jordan in mind...because he "is" so special to me...he NEVER forgets his mom. The "fathers" in the sentiment is with the Dalai Lama in mind or whomever Jordan wants it to be, including his own father. Jordan respects the Dalai Lama highly, so that is what I was particularly focusing on...as well as all the prophets, and greatnesses of being in all faiths! But first, as a way of sharing the essence of my son's and my bond, and just "who" Jordan is, I want to share a gift he gave me for my birthday - a song he wrote and taped for me.
HAPPY FIFTY TWO
verse You're one half the agreement That brought me into being And twenty-three years later You're the best mom I've seen Today you're one year older But it's really just one more day I've put these words together To wish you a Happy Birthday
August fourteenth nineteen fifty six You came into this world And though I didn't know you, I'm sure You were a beautiful girl. Now fifty-two years have passed And there's many more to come You have three kids that are sure of one thing: They have the world's greatet mom!
CHORUS We love you And I love you It's really, really true. Happy Birthday to you, mom. Happy fifty-two.
verse At twenty-nine you had a son And loved him through the years You listened to his stories Through the laughter and the tears At thirty-two you now had a pair With your daughter's pretty face And loved her too, with all your heart Though I know she came from space.
Then finally, the trio was complete After you turned forty-two And ten years later, he's grown so tall And wears bigger shoes than you!
CHORUS We love you And I love you It's really, really true Happy Birthday to you, mom, Happy fifty-two
BRIDGE Sometimes it may feel like we're far away And sometimes we don't speak for several days But you're my mom and we share a soul And I'll love you past the end How many people are as lucky as me. With a parent as a friend?
CHORUS We love you And I love you It's really, really true Happy Birthday to you, mom Happy fifty-two
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Love, JORDAN (my now 25 year old who is engaged to marry "our Laura!")
How great an honor to hand over the torch to a woman (Laura) that you positively love with all your heart and that you KNOW is the best woman in the world (besides me of course lol) for your son.
