Happy Birthday Hans!




Instead of counting candles,
Or tallying the years,
Contemplate your blessings,
As your birthday nears.

Consider special people
Who love you,
and who care,
And others who’ve enriched your life
Just by being there.

Think about the memories
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are.

Another year is a happy gift,
So cut your cake, and say
,"Instead of counting birthdays,
I count blessings every day!"



A very very happy Birthday to you Hans!

With love,
Sandra

Dear Hans,
Bonne Fête!
Quand on est jeune, c'est pour toujours.
On ne compte pas les heures et les années
seulement
les battements vifs d'un coeur aimant.
Meilleurs voeux!
Claude
