“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” ~ Dr. Seuss

"You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So... get on your way!"

Today is the wonder girl's birthday, as well as the extraordinary, Dr.Seuss ... and again,this quote I used last year but as I searched for others, I kept circling back to it.

Photobucket

Zoey has such amazing things awaiting her and 4 years ago,perhaps that was difficult to see through the darkness that seemed to immediately engulf us at the time of her birth.Today there is only light and joy and the hope of a future brimming with possibilities.

Today the little love and I are heading to Children's to deliver cupcakes to the floors that are filled with the people who helped not only Zoey,but the rest of us as well,to navigate the difficult days of the last 4 years.We are indebted to them.They were her lifeline and not a day goes by that I am not overwhelmed with gratitude for that.

So that is our immediate plans for the day.As for the rest of the day,we will just bask in the sunshine of our miracle girl,who continues to be the beacon that guides us all in our daily lives.

Happy Birthday Zoey AND Dr. Suess.

Come to think of it...I wish I did live in California. I want a medical marijuana license. That way maybe I could come up with some cool Suess-like stuff for a new generation of kids.

I love the idea of taking cupcakes to the hospital on her birthday. I´m sure everyone there is so happy to see Miss Zoey. I think I´ll steal the idea and send cupcakes to our daughters favorite nurses and docs on her birthday!

Happy Birthday Sweet Zoey! You most certainly are a miracle surrounded by sweetness and light! I am sure it means so much to those at the hospital who saw you so sick to see you doing so amazing now, and to receive your goodies of gratitude.

Happy birthday sweet sweet Zoey, I know I am a day late but unfortunately I couldn't get online but I certainly did think of you. I wish so many wonderful things for you and God knows just how much deserve them all. I also wish for myself that by some miracle we get to meet one day....maybe that day is still far off but I won't give up hope. Your story has kept me inspired and on many a day when I felt very desolate and not very optimistic I always think of how such a small wonder like you has faced this world with such courage, for me you are no little wonder but very very large indeed. We love you and send you love and more love from across the seas. Hope you have a really great party. Can't wait to see all the pictures.
