A Last Glance Back

Just one glance back~
to see that the
baby of the group
is coming along..
Just one glance back~
to assure that he
is okay.
Isn't it wonderful
that inborn instinct
in our little ones..
the instinct that makes
the older ones
want to protect and
take care of those
that are younger still.
One glance back for me
as we leave this year
and move forward into
the next.
We are so blessed
to have family
that we love
that share our lives.
My hope for each
and every one of you
is that your life
is filled with
hope and peace
and that
you have
God in your everyday life..
for we are really
nothing but
Children in this World..
Children that have been
given much..
and to those that have been
given much..
much is expected.
Just for one day
give without expecting
any thing in return
and you will be
Happy New Year!
your photo name

Happy New Year Diana Sweetie...
What a beautiful share today. I love this write. You are so darn good with words.

The photo of the grandkids is just precious. I love the little blonde curls. He looks just like an angel. Priceless is this photo.

Oh and I love your last post of Sweetcheeks, and is she ever cute or what. She has bra for big girl boobies. Yep SweetCheeks is growing up fast now.

I also adored the photo that spelled out the family name. That was just precious and I am sure the kids had fun posing for the letters as well. Clever idea. Just so clever.

Oh sweet friend, I have so enjoyed blogging with you this past year, and I can't wait to see what 2011 brings to us. You always make me smile and make my heart "FULL". I love coming to see what you and SweetCheeks have been up to.

Many hugs and SO much love to you sweetie for the New Year. Love, Sherry
