A Slightly Better Birthday Wish

Girl, I hope you dance... I'm not a country music lover, that song is one that I always pause on. That song captures what I wish for my sweet girl. My Corinne...

I hope you always remember that nothing is gained from sitting on the sidelines and hoping to be asked to dance. If you are moved by the music? DON'T WAIT. Don't spend precious minutes or hours or days talking yourself into it. Don't question your abilities. Don't waste your life comparing your dance moves to those already on the floor. Just Dance!

I hope you always retain the joyous freedom I witnessed at your birthday party last week. Laughing and shrieking with your friends, bouncing and twirling to Taylor Swift and all of the other girly-bopping music; you were all so carefree and beautiful. Pure Joy.

You've grown up so much in 7 years. It is an honor, an absolute privilege to witness your development from an adorably chubby lump of baby mush...


into the brilliant, outspoken, outRAGEOUS girl I have ever known. I do so adore and admire you, sweetie. Keep on dancing and twirling....
