Happy Birthday Tanton

Happy Birthday Tanton
 As I sit and reflect on the precious moments in my life
 Several enter my mind
 Like the day I became your Grandpa's wife
 He was a good man, a loyal man, one rarely does find
 Had I not met him, my future wouldn't have blessed me with you
 I'd likely remained alone , and secretly blue
 Of sorrows I've known many
 Because of drifting from the Lord's way
 Yet Jesus forgave my errors
 And blessed me on the day
 You were born
 Your arrival on earth was a God Send
 That healed my broken heart
 Your smile filled an emptiness within me
 Your love embraced me from the start
 As I sit and reflect on the precious moments in my life
 You, Squirt (and your brother) come to mind
 You two may never know how much delight you provided 
 When I needed that most, you gave in the perfect time
 So I've paused today on your birthday
 To tell you how much I love you
 My love for you is deeper than any ocean floor
 My pride in you eternal
 And my dreams for you much more
 My prayers for your joy and happiness remain perpetual
 As my heart journeys with you in every way
 And although I cannot be there with you
 I wish you a favored and blessed Birthday

Love Nanny Sept 4 2019
