Poem: I'm Special

This is a poem that we found through our Yahoo Group.

I'm Special:

On my way from Heaven, God delayed my trip that day.
He said that I was special, and then sent me on my way.
But not before He kissed me, right upon my ear.
He left his blessed mark to carry with me here.
He whispered in my ear right then, that He loved me without a doubt.
And then He closed my ear up tight, so the whisper won't get out.
He told me both my legs were strong and would help me stand up tall.
He told me both my arms would work to catch me if I fall.
My eyes would catch my memories to store within the pages of my mind.
My heart would fill with all the things I would love, so many things I would find.
He told me I could fall asleep to my Daddy's bedtime tales.
And listen while my Mother sings of seas and boats and sails.
One ear, He told me, could hear the sounds that little birdies make.
The other ear was his gift to me, a blessing for my sake.
For when I'm feeling sad, he said, my other ear would hear,

His whispered words of eternal love, left waiting for me there.

I'm special!!

Lauren Turns 4 Years Old!

Lauren celebrated her 4th Birthday today!! She was very excited and has been talking about it for weeks. We had a family party for her and she spent the day at Jungle Jim's Playground. She is very much a daredevil and loves to go on all the rides. The bumpier the ride, the more she loves it. It will be a big year coming up for her. It seems unfair that she has to deal with something so extensive, but I really believe she will get through it all. There will be some big milestones for her this next year. I am not sure what she used for her birthday wish this year, but I know her mom and I both wished for the same thing.
