Happy Birthday Avalyn!

i will tell you, my daughter
of your worth
not your beauty
everyday.  (your beauty is a given, every being is born
beautiful)
knowing your worth
can save your life.
raising you on beauty alone
you will be starved.
you will be raw.
you will be weak.
an easy stomach.
always in need of someone telling you how beautiful you 
are.
nayyirah waheed

To my daughter worth more than any precious metal or gem, happy birthday!  You cannot know how much you have made our lives better.
