Happy Sweet 16 Rachel


My baby girl turns “Sweet 16” today,

And being 15 now seems to be so passé.

I can’t wait to see just what this year ahead will bring,

Like learning to drive, and among other things.

You are growing up oh so very fast,

That I only wish I could make these moments last.

In the blink of an eye you’ve become such a bright and impassioned young lady,

But no matter what, you’ll forever be our beautiful little baby.

I know you may not believe it sometimes but being the youngest of three,

Has got so many wondrous blessings that I think you might agree.

Jacob and Hannah are always there for you when you need a helping hand,

And they will protect you forever and a day, no matter what their lives command.

You are truly lucky to have so many special friends; some who have stood the test of time,

Because having friends by your side means there is no mountain you can not climb.

You are such a creative and talented artist, ‘specially with a makeup or paint brush,

That I know with all your tenacity there ain’t a dream you will not crush.

Dad and I couldn’t be more proud as you keep reaching for the stars,

And most of all, always know that you are loved, no matter where you are.
