CONVERSATION WITH MY DAUGHTER AT SCHOOL PICK UP YESTERDAY:
GIA: Mom, would there be any way we could go to the store after I get out of group tonight and grab a few things so I can put some Christmas bags together for my Hope kids? If your tired I promise I will do all the work and I can even pay for it myself. All I need you to do is drive me to the store and I can take it from there.
ME (Heart MELTING): Umm, daughter? I think you just gave me the greatest Christmas gift I never knew I needed.
And just like that, not even broken wings can stop my little Phoenix from rising far above all the mire! After everything this child has been through (some of which most of you will NEVER know), she has her mother’s heart, soul, spirit and courage, only, just so much more – BETTER! I am an SUCH an incredibly lucky woman to get to be the one who claims the honor: “Look at what I’ve done and this Light I’ve created unto a very dark world.”
