Best Days

I’m five years old, it’s getting cold, I've got my big coat on. 
I hear your laugh and look up smiling at you,
 I run and run past the pumpkin patch and the tractor rides,
 look now, the sky is gold. 
I hug your legs and fall asleep on the way home.

I don't know why all the trees change in the fall
But I know you're not scared of anything at all
Don't know if Snow White's house is near or far away. But I know I had the best day with you today

I'm thirteen now and don't know how my friends could be so mean
I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys
And we drive and drive until we found a town far enough away
And we talk and window shop 'til I've forgotten all their names

I don't know who I'm gonna talk to now at school
But I know I'm laughing on the car ride home with you 
Don't know how long it's gonna take to feel okay
But I know I had the best day with you today

There is a video I found from back when I was three
You set up a paint set in the kitchen and you're talking to me
It's the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs
And Daddy's smart and you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world

And now I know why the all the trees change in the fall 
I know you were on my side even when I was wrong 
And I love you for giving me your eyes 
For staying back and watching me shine 
And I didn't know if you knew, so I'm takin' this chance to say 
That I had the best day with you today

.I've never known a prettier, smarter lady in this whole world. I always have the best times with you. Love you so much and so thankful you are my mom. 
Happy Birthday!

So, very honoring. Of what I could see, she has had a wonderful birthday. All the calls and texts, it looked like she felt loved. Especially after this post, I'm sure.

This was ridiculously sweet! I'm sure your mother loved it. As lucky as you are to have her, she is equally lucky to have you. You rock Ashley. x.
