Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Dedicated to my wild, outgoing, smart, beautiful, and talented daughters of mine.
Shooting Stars

In the middle of the night, I startle just to hear your breathing.
I daydream about your laughter whenever we are not near.
Those big, brown eyes are a sight worth seeing,
And that sweet smile is what I will always hold dear.

You may not know just how much I love you
Or how much you remind me…of me.
I only want to see your dreams come true
And assure you that, anything, you can be.

You are so stubborn and yet so kind.
I love to watch your world of wonder.
I want to know what goes on in your mind
I have complete faith in you, there’s no need to ponder.

You are my calm on a stormy night
And my sun in the gloomiest of days.
You’ve become a bright light
And strengthen me in many ways.

Anyone could see why
You bring me home when I am far
Lighting up the night sky
For you are like shooting stars.
