I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers,
From the seas and the streams;
I bear light shade for the leaves when laid
In their noon-day dreams.
From my wings are shaken the dews that waken
The sweet buds every one,
When rocked to rest on their mother's breast,
As she dances about the Sun.

from The Cloud
by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Some years back Tim McGraw did a song called "She's My Kind of Rain" and for the longest time i said it was Madison's song...but on further reflection, its much more attributable to Leah. Our beautiful Leah, with her bubbly laugh like warm summer rain on a placid pool, her soft velveteen voice rarely without a giggle cached somewhere within, her smile that brightens the melancholy clouds of worry to nimbus aureoles of joy...our beautiful Leah Skye turned five yesterday...

Five winged years of watching you flourish into the graceful child you've become. You have always had a very special place in my heart, there is a beautiful spirit of Peace within you and we are all so very thankful for you.
Happy Birthday Baby, may you always continue your ' about the Sun'.
