Jayden's Fifth Year ~ Still Blessed

Okay, we're nearing the end, there's only one more post left after this of the "Jayden Saga" leading up to his Sixth Birthday. I think you might remember some of these events leading up to his Fifth Birthday:

Good night, my angel
Time to close your eyes

And save these questions for another day

I think I know what you've been asking me

I think you know what I've been trying to say

I promised I would never leave you

And you should always know

Wherever you may go

No matter where you are

I never will be far away

Good night, my angel

Now it's time to sleep

And still so many things I want to say

Remember all the songs you sang for me

When we went sailing on an emerald bay

And like a boat out on the ocean

I'm rocking you to sleep

The water's dark and deep

Inside this ancient heart

You'll always be a part of me

Good night, my angel

Now it's time to dream

And dream how wonderful your life will be

Someday your child may cry

And if you sing this lullabye

Then in your heart

There will always be a part of me

Someday we'll all be gone

But lullabyes go on and on...

...they never die

That's how you

And I

Will be

Lullabye ~ Billy Joel

Happy Birthday, Five-Year-Old!

Thank You, God!


  1. Just how many billions of photographs do you have of Jayden, Eileen? I'm kidding, but I bet you have way more than you have shown these past few weeks leading up to his birthday celebration! Hope Jayden has a special day, he is something to be Thankful for!
