When I look at you I don't see...

More mouths to feed,

more bills to pay,

more worries,

more pains,

more hassles,

more cost,

more burdens

or more work.

What I see is...

A chance,

a hope,

a promise,

a choice,

a person,

a dream,

a life,

a blessing,

a gift.

Thinking of you and sending big HUGS!

Joe gave me a frame that a woman specially makes by hand with Punkie's pic right in the middle shortly after she came into our lives. It reads:

"Lord, look down from heaven above & bless this special child with love. Protect & guide this little one, until each & every day is done. Remind us often that it's true: this little life is a GIFT from you. A miracle You've sent our way; Lord bless this little child today."

For sure..........
