Awww. Awwwwww. I think I'm late with the birthday wishes, but nevertheless...

In heaven shines a golden star
An angel led you from afar
From heaven high unto the earth
And brought you to your house of birth...

... And the angel led the child across the rainbow bridge saying, "Joy and laughter you may bring, to everyone and everything."

And on the earth a child was born, and the parents looked at the child and said, "Look at this precious gift from the heavens. We shall name her Maya."

Just my favorite lines of the birthday story I used to tell in the Kindergarten. :-)

Happy Day!
