her day

When your birthday dawns gloomy gray, you have but two choices...
wish for sunshine, or splash color all over the day and make your own.




 
We painted, we rummaged through book stores, indulged on Starbucks and red velvet & white checkered cake. Just before his appointed descent, the sun pushed through the clouds and shone golden rays of light all around us. And if that gift wasn't enough... the other half of the sky tried to show the sun up with a rainbow that surely must have encircled the earth. On her day, even through the gray, there was no lack of light... her smile was bright enough to conquer all.
