Birthday on the trail (Day 14)

Sarah’s birthday was early on in our journey and could be celebrated. Several others won’t be: Fern’s, Emily’s and Holly’s birthdays will happen without mothers’ contact probably….

Kind and thoughtful Sandie
Spending the day before
Looking for
Little heartfelt
So she can weave
A surprise gift of
Love and wonder
For our friend
Who’s been battling
Uncooperative knees..

I find a tree card
and hearty leaf
We sing
our happy birthday song
which lands well

And is enhanced by the gift of
A remnant hut candle and biscuit
From Janosh and Symi, our TA friends,
Who gleefully
Enter into the spirit
Of the occasion.
