call. me. love. (a birthday poem.)

Love is patient and kind.

1Corinthians 13:4

For all the many ways we are called to become LOVE itself!

Once upon a time there was a chaquita-banana girl

celebrating a very special day.

And though her daddy wouldn’t be there,

he loved her just the same!

They both were very happy

giggling (together) merrily,

always counting down the days until

“Together again, we will be! (You, me and Lady K make three!)”

The moral of the story

is no matter small or tall –

you have SO MANY loving fans,

to celebrate with you through it all!

So never listen to any critics, naysayers,

or poopy-party-pants,

rather instead

just let LOVE always be the solidarity chant!

hugs, blessings & happy birthday 

chaquita-banana girl!

We can’t wait to tra-la-la-la- kick with you, very soon!!
