Happy 7th Birthday Kiana


Yesterday my little girl turned one year older. She was sleepily crawling out of bed when I said, "Happy Birthday!" She hopped up and said, "Is it really my birthday?" When I said it was, she cried, "Yippee, skippee, todays my birthday!" Then she stopped again and said, "Am I really 7 now?" She could hardly believe her birthday had actually arrived. She wanted us to sing Happy Birthday but when we did, she had to hide her face. Kiana, you have brought so much joy into our home. You make us laugh with your spontaneous input to conversations that you are to young to understand, we cry with you when you wonder why your parents couldn't care for you. Your good night hugs and kisses make all the struggles of the day worth it. May God bless you this coming year!

We celebrate your birthday, as you turn seven today,
but we have got the gift, just the perfect gift,
that on this very special day, God gave away,
a gift of love from up above, so unique and so rare

God has specially made you to the very tip of your nose,
as precious as a flower, as tender as a rose.
Fulfilled and blessed our lives we have and all because of you,
as sweet as honey, so innocent and pure

The twinkle of your eyes is brighter than any star,
the smiles you leave behind keep our days bright,
though our laps you have outgrown,
you will never outgrow our hearts

We watch and pray as you grow,
in love and in faith, in beauty and in grace,
you bring us joy and pure delight,
just to gaze upon your lovely face

Our hearts you keep warm and are with you wherever you may go,
and as you go on life's journey, only happiness may you find,
you are the joyful moments through our sorrow,
you are our hope and promise of our tomorrow

'cause you are our pride, our unconditional love we pledge,
'cause you are our joy, our undivided bond we cherish,
'cause you are our sunshine, our embrace is your shield through the rain,
'cause you are our little girl, our hugs and kissed will take away your pain

We asked God for a flower and He gave us a bouquet
we asked God for a minute and He gave us a day
we prayed to God for true love and He gave us that too
we prayed to God for an angel and He gave us you

May God bless you dear angel
especially on this day, that marks your birth,
for all the special ways you bring
a bit of heaven into our world

May God bless you, Today, Tomorrow and Always
in Peace in Health in Happiness and in Love

We love you, Kiana!
