"In the end, it's right ..."

She's 25 years old today. I was 23 when she was born. She's so much wiser at her age than I was then.

My birthday wish for her is the same as it's been every single year for the last quarter-century.

I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow
And each road leads you where you want to go
And if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you
And if one door opens to another door closed
I hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window
If it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile
I hope you never look back, but you never forget
All the ones who love you, in the place you left
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret
And you help somebody every chance you get
Oh, you find God's grace in every mistake
And you always give more than you take
But more than anything, more than anything
My wish for you is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you're out there getting where you're getting to
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish
(Rascal Flatts, "My Wish")

Happy Birthday, Baby Girl. I love you.
