Glitter and sunshine and all about thirteen.

You deserve glitter and sunshine

on your  birthday.

It’s what you brought to my life

the day you were handed to me -


and squishy

and beautiful.

Glitter and sunshine

in Winter

is a gift.

It’s what you are to me

with your freckles

and half smile

and your free spirit.

I love that you remind me of

your Dad

and my Mum

and  sometimes

me too.

You are my gift.

Every day

but especially today -

because today

you are thirteen.

I wish you glitter and sunshine, my girl.

Happy Birthday to you.
