FC: so many | I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger. I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting. I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess. I wish you enough "Hello's" to get you through your "Good-byes. | Memories | I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
1: Dedicated to 4 lovely young ladies (and their families) who entered my life as little girls. You all amaze me with your talents, maturity. resilience & and should I mention forgiveness for most of my "great" ideas. How lucky I am to have had you a part of my crazy life. How lucky I am to get the privilege of witnessing you all grow into such wonderful people. Thank you to your families who have allowed me to share this privilege, and have, for whatever reason, trusted me with their children unsupervised! You are all beautiful inside & out!
