My girls came over tonight to have a sleep over at Nana's, how exciting. They are going to sleep in the green room and Angie is sleeping in the SECRET BED! As I laid beside her and sang songs with her, I realized how blessed I am to be near enough to have her come over and have a sleep over. Many of my friends that are Grandmas and Nanas, don't have their grand kids near them, so tonight as I kissed her good night...I was counting my blessings.
It is late and I have to get to bed, but I just wanted to leave you with this thought, maybe we forget at times how our choices effect the children around us. This quote was a great reminder to remember the children in our lives and what a profound effect we can have on them and the generations to come... just by loving them.
Good night dear friends.
