Suddenly, the young people I know are older than me (I think I will always be 21 in my mind). This is a recognition of one of the special AC people in my life, Mary C O’Malley. Happy 25th Birthday, Miss Mary!
One day you were learning to ride a bike
and then you were off to junior high.
Where did the time go,
and how did it fly by?
Sharing Brownie Scout enjoyment,
then scout, then cadette
then senior scout
Too many stepping stones met.
Graduating from preschool
seems like yesterday
so many other graduations
between then and now, I say.
Laughing and learning together
meeting the world with a smile,
Memories stored up forever
Mostly happy thoughts in style.
Each day you grow older
learning even more
still willing to share knowledge
though it must be a bore
To answer technical questions
that seem everyday to you
when I haven’t yet figured out
what it takes to do
half the things around me
rules change everyday
I’m grateful for the time we’ve had
together or away.
Keep following your dreams, love
the answers are all there
just stay the path you learned while young
and stay in God’s precious care.
Happy Birthday, Mary. I love you lots :)
