As a girl I had a common dream, to be a mom someday. My baby would have eyes of blue and hair the hue of hay. But now my dreams have been transformed. New visions fill my head. Now the tresses that I long to stroke are raven black instead. And in my dreams those eyes are not so big or blue or round. Now in my dreams they're almond shaped and colored cocoa brown. And in my dreams my arms can stretch across enormous seas. They reach halfway around the world and hold you close to me. As you grown in your mother's womb, carefully knit together, you're also growing in my heart, where you will stay forever. And in my dreams the moment that your mother says good-bye, I'll be right there to comfort your and hold you as you cry. Our features may not look alike: we're different as can be. But still I know the Father has created you for me. And though I've not yet seen your face, or held your tiny hands, and though we're half a world apart in very different lands. I'll be right there to get you just as soon as God allows. But til He says the time is right I give to you this vow. I'll pray for your protection every day on bended knee. For God to hold you in His arms, until you're here with me. ~Author, Gayle Becker

Tahnks Lisa, I think we all needed that!!!!
I also think I need to stop deleatimg EVERYTHING form the DTC group before reading it. I have gotten SO bad at doing that. Everymorning I just go down the line hitting deleat, unles I see something that says secret pal, or OGWQ. I can't believe I even admited that!!
So anyway...What did your grandfather have to say on his visit? (you didn't think you could just leave me hanging like that, did you?)
