On my birthday morning....

I see trees of gold,

Birthday roses too!
I see books I love
in our house for two
and I think to myself...
What a wonderful world!

I see mem'ries we've made
On shelves all around

The places we've been
the friends that we've found

And I think to myself...
What a wonderful world!

The color of the leaves,
so pretty 'round each bend...

And my coffee made warmer
thanks to the gift of a friend!

I've got friends, far and near,
Saying, "Happy Birthday to you!"

Could Google be saying
"I love you??"

I hear babies cry,
I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more
than I'll ever know.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world...

Oh yeah
{as I turn fifty-three}
I think to myself,
What a wonderful world!!

So happy to be linking up with Kathy 
and the wonderful
