Twinkie Birthday Love



"The Adventure"
I wanna have the same last dream again,
the one where I wake up and I'm alive.
Just as the four walls close me within,
my eyes are opened up with pure sunlight.
I'm the first to know,
my dearest friends,
even if your hope has burned with time,
anything that's dead shall be re-grown,
and your vicious pain,
your warning sign,
you will be fine.
Hey, oh, here I am,
and here we go,
life's waiting to begin.
Any type of love - it will be shown,
like every single tree reach for the sky.
If you're gonna fall,I'll let you know,
that I will pick you up like you for I,
I felt this thing,I can't replace.
Where everyone was working for this goal.
Where all the children left without a trace,
only to come back, as pure as gold,
To recite this all.
Hey, oh, here I am,
and here we go,
life's waiting to begin.
I cannot live, I can't breathe unless you do this with me
Today Lili and Felix turn 1 year old. A year ago today I was packing The Phi in the jeep and we were zooming toward the ocean. This song must have played about 5 times on the way down and as I listened to the lyrics I cried with joy because it was so fitting. As we were running into the hospital, my niece and nephew were entering the world. Starting a whole new adventure for all of us. And an adventure it has been. It only a year we cannot picture what our worlds would be like without these two in it. I can't wait to see what kind of real adventures Lili and Felix take this family on. I remember when I was pregnant and I was afraid I wouldn't love my own kid as much as I loved my niece Chone. And then I couldn't imagine loving a new niece and nephew as much as I loved Chone and The Phi. But with each new member of the family my heart grows in size and I am capable of loving even more than imaginable. This morning as I turned the ignition in the car a song began to play over the speakers. It was "The Adventure", how perfect because today Lili and Felix turn 1 year old.
