Lovely Shower

And as they sat among
the gifts and the stars
they ate
delightful lemony, chocolaty
cakes, and drank
fruity fizzy Izzes
and they laughed
and they cried
and read fortunes in their
Chinese cookies
and talked of mother dreams
and babies
then she realized
it was all for her
and a daughter an ocean away
and her heart was full
so much so
had there been
just one more tiny drop
it would have flooded
the heavens
Love,
Courtney
Thanks Klaud, Suz, and Hol for hosting a perfect shower!

Courtney- Hope that you enjoyed every minute of your shower. You have waited so long, I hope that you were spoiled.
Just a little bit longer- and you will have your Elyza.
Love,
