She Twirls

My dad turned 92 last month.

We reserved the activity room in his retirement center, and my siblings who live near joined him for dinner.  Afterwards the grandkids and great grandkids who live near showed up for cake, ice cream, and fun.  

One came straight from his guitar lesson and played Grandpa a song.  Another came from his piano lesson and played his song for Grandpa. Then we went out to the courtyard where the little ones ran around... except for one...

Sea Strong... She Strong...

When the sun rises in the morning, 
     I will be ready to give my all!
          I am strong!
          I have confidence!
          I am proud of my efforts!
          I feel important!
          I can do great things!
          I know who I am!
          I am glad that I'm me!
          I will make a difference!
When the sun sets at night, 
     I will know I've done my best!
