Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to

Shannon Annette Metcalf


Today marks the thirty-seven year
since you have enriched our days,
you have shined brighter than any
star with all your  beautiful ways.

Your smile never fails and your
energy flows as the summer wind,
you embrace life so tirelessly
as you flash that infectious grin.

I take this time to thank
 God for His marvelous grace,
because he gave you to us 
to always love and to embrace.

Happy Birthday this September Six
may this day bring you cheer,
I hope you find the same happiness
you have brought to us my dear.
