A birthday at some point can be unuplifting
And it isn’t much help when folks go light on the gifting

But for Deborah this year there is much celebration
Even the skies are not bringing umbrella-ticipation

It’s beautiful day and a beautiful year
New job, wedding plans and a whole new career

Deb’s insights and drive keep the Basket a’flowing
(It’s obvious right? Which sister keeps it going)

She is brilliant and silly; a great mom, sister and friend–
So let’s cheer her big day! Oh. We’re at the end.

Happy birthday Deborah!!!

P.S. I did buy you a beautiful bouquet from Flowers Ireland!

    No, sure, my lord, my mother cried; but then there
    was a star danced, and under that was I born.

  9. I send my warmest wishes, Deborah. Always remember: we bear the name of a powerful woman: a prophet, a working woman, a commander of respect. It was you who told me that about her, long ago (well, S.Sister seems like another lifetime!) but I wanted to repeat it, in gratitude to you and (selfishly) as a reminder to myself.

    May it be a beautiful, love-filled year ahead.
