Happy 51st Birthday Princess Diana (July 1, 1961 - August 31, 1997) ~
To a woman who graced the world with affinity, peace, and love. To a woman who was selfless and shared herself with everyone. To a woman who loved a person unconditionally, regardless of who you were. To a woman who always put others first before herself. To a woman who did the best she could at everything that she did. To a woman who smiled even though she was sometimes in her own world of despair. To a woman who made you special even if you felt you weren’t. To a woman who never gave up on you. To a mother who always believed in her children, loved them with every inch of her being, and gave them her whole world. To the little girl who never knew of what she would mean and do for the people of all nations. To DIANA, I just want to say - you’ve given me hope when I felt I couldn’t make it. You gave me an internal push, when I didn’t feel I could fight anymore for the things I wanted and needed in life. You gave me strength, when I’ve been at my weakest point. You’ve inspired me to give back to the world and continue my efforts with charity and to help those in need. I just can’t thank you enough for what you’ve done and still do for people everywhere around the world. It’s a shame that you’re not here to see all of the beautiful things that’s happened this past year because you deserve to be here to see everything, but I know that you’ve got the best seat in the house up there and you can see it all. I can’t say I didn’t cry when I wrote this, but I miss you so much and I know everyone else does as well — especially your boys. I miss seeing your lovely face around here. I can’t believe you’re 51 today, shows how much time flies. Anyway, I love you so much and so does the rest of the world. Rest easy beautiful and watch over us under your safe keeping.
“I miss the years that were erased. I miss the way the sunshine would light up your face. I miss all the little things. I never thought that they’d mean everything to me. I miss you, and I wish you were here." - "From Where You Are”, Lifehouse
