May she stay. Forever young.

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
and let others do for you

                                                       May you build a ladder to the stars
and climb on every rung

May you stay forever young.

I was just thinking tonight about how much I love this song. With my Katie so sick I just want her to feel young again. The freedom of running, riding a bike, and feeling the wind in her hair. When we were young we  made winding trails through the tall weeds and grass in the empty lot next to her house, playing hide and seek and laying next to the warm dirt until dusk had settled and it was time to go home. If she can't have another day like that I hope at least God will grant her a nights dream that feels like childhood.
And may she stay...forever young.
