1: Happy 40th Birthday, Amy! Throughout our 16 years of friendship we've made many wonderful memories. In celebration of your special day I want to express my gratitude for all of the countless ways you have blessed my life. I can always count on you for support, inspiration, empathy, to listen, laugh, for optimism, and spiritually--these are traits a true friend possesses and embraces naturally like you do. I have said it before and I will say it again, God introduced us during a unique time in our lives, and I'm forever grateful He chose you to be a big part of mine. I hope you cherish what lies ahead as you turn each page. I created this especially for you with hopes that you will always remember that you hold a very special place in my heart and in the hearts of many others too. Here's to 40 fabulous years and many more to come! Love you, girlfriend! Lisa

26: A father loves a daughter like no other love on earth From the day that he first meets her nothing can compare her worth. Forever are they bonded with a love that never fails For always he will hug her and kiss goodnight with fairy tales. He will love her and protect her with strong arms just in case But will also hug her tenderly with a fatherly embrace. Eskimo kisses touch her nose with a giggle and a squeeze And that sparkle in her little eyes could bring him to his knees. What more could any father want than a daughter so sweet and pure There's nothing in this world so rare of that he can be sure. A fathers love is so unique it cannot be replaced He will always treasure times with her and the memories embraced. ~Kristin Rose | I will always love you.
