Happy Birthday, Ellie!

Sweet little girl
Blond little curl
Big blue eyes
Full of surprise

So much fun
Not to be outdone
By a little brother
Or any other

Along came some trials
For just awhile
But with each test
You found yourself Blessed

Lots to bear
Fighting fear
Sorrows were overcome
And battles were won

Open the doors
The future is yours
Stay strong, stay stoic
To your Mom you're heroic



  1. Eileen...She's beautiful!!!
    She looks like a princess.
    Happy Birthday Ellie.
    Hugs from Jackie

  2. Oh, Jackie, you're up late too!
    I wanted to stay up and post something for Ellie, and then I started reading blogs, I've been away for just a day or two and feel like I missed so much!

    So happy to hear that you'll be back!
    And thanks so much for your kind notes, and for your kind comments here, and for your good wishes!
    Love, Eileen

  3. Happy Birthday Ellie.....big hugs from you mum's friend Bernie, xoxo
    Great post Eileen, how wonderful that you share Ellie's birthday and your love for her with all of us that care so much for you.
    You have got this poem "thing" down pat my friend....I am impressed.
    Have a wonderful day celebrating your daughter's birthday...luv you....:-) Hugs

  4. Wonderful poem and tribute to Ellie and she is lovely...guess that just oozes eveywhere in your family genes.

    So pleased to see you posting so i send an extra thank you to Ellie for having a birthday. She has such an interesting name that it would be neat if you posted about (we all should) how and why your kids got the names that they did.

    blessings galore and happy hugs,


  5. Lovely poem for such a beautiful young lady!!! Wishing you all a wonderful day! Cathy

  6. Thank you, everyone, for your wonderful comments and your kind birthday wishes for Ellie! I appreciate it and I know she will too! She took today off work and Jayden wanted her to walk him to school, so that's where she's off to now.

    And, Marcy, you are right, it would be interesting for us to do a post on the names we chose for our children and the reasons behind them. I'd enjoy reading every single one!
    You always come up with such good ideas!

    Love you all!, Eileen

    Much Love Always,

  8. How about if we choose a day next week and any of those days that anyone wants to, they can post about the where and why of each child's and grandchild's name??

    blessings and name hugs,



    Happy birthday to sweet little Ellie. :-) I love your words and your heart's voice.

    Love Gail

  10. I can tell Ellie is very special. I don't know what she has been through but I love how you said she "Sorrows were run and battles were overcome" so I hope that means she is doing well now!
    Happy Birthday Ellie!

  11. Beautiful poem by a beautiful poet for a beautiful person. God bless you all!

  12. Ellie is so beautiful! I agree with all seem to have that same beauty!! I loved your poem...very sweet and heartfelt. You are good at writing poems...I hope Ellie has a very Happy Birthday!! (Happy Birthday to the Mommy too!) I'm glad to see you back...I was missing you terribly:( Did you get my e-mail? I sent you your pen-pal exchange address....If not I'll have to send you another e-mail.
    Just let me know.

  13. Sorry I have to post again..I forgot to say I love what you've done with your page! And..I like Marcy's idea of telling about our children's names. That would be very interesting to read. Although..with mine, I just always had those names picked out..ever since I was a little girl. Except for Sam...
    But that's another short story...
    Love You! Jerelene

  14. have changed your header since yesterday whrn I was here...and I WAS here, but my comment is should be there just under Jill's...I either leave too quickly before seeing if it succeeded or it got ate...
