The inspiration for her birthday party actually came from her great-grandmother who passed away from breast cancer complications when I was 16. She was my best friend and the one person I think about more than any other. When I was growing up she always had this tin of buttons we use to dig through and play with every time I would spend the night or come to visit. When she passed away all I had left of her was that tin of buttons.
I can remember clearly as a child so small
Asking Mamaw for her tin of buttons she had hidden behind the dolls.
We would get them out and count them one by one
Playing with them until the evening sun.
Some were red, some were blue
Some were plain, but some were fancy too.
She kept them there if ever a shirt needs mending
But most of all for us kids pretending.
Now that she is gone I share this collection with you
In hopes they make precious memories for you too.
I wish she were here to see your sweet face,
But I know she is looking down on you from a better place.
Happy First Birthday sweetheart we love you!
