Birthday Wishes

Happy Birthday, Dear Daughter

Birthday Wishes Fairy © 2009 Bo Mackison

The Happy Birthday Fairy is here to help me wish a Happy Birthday to my daughter, Jeanne. On a March 16 twenty-some years ago, at 10:31 in the morning, Jeanne made her appearance into this world.

Her father, half Irish, was a bit upset as he was hoping for a St. Patrick’s Day baby. He did ask if I could hold up the birth for a few more hours. The baby was already 9 days late. I briefly considered his request, then. . .

. . . I told him “#@*#*”.



So, Happy Birthday, Jeanne.  Hope you have a wonderful day, even if it is a Monday and the day before St. Patrick’s Day!
