I had to share this moment I had with my Gracie....
Gracie belongs to Awana which is a club that she attends weekly
from our church and they earn Awana bucks which the Sparky's
earn from memorizing their Bible verses and other tasks. Then
before the end of the school year they go to the Awana store
to spend all of the " bucks " they have saved up. The kids love
this since members donate items and they are displayed with
prices and the kids get to " shop".....
So Gracie was extremely excited Sunday morning when she
woke up early and said she had a " surprise for me" so she lead
me into the family room with my eyes closed then she sat on my
lap and said " open your eyes mommy " ....
her words melted my heart as she spoke
she had used all of her earnings to buy me
a vase full of sea shells and arranged them on the table
She said she knew how much I loved sea shells and
if I wanted to I could sell them at the store which she was
refering to my dealer space at Country Roads.
The tears were flowing like a river as
each minute I held her in my arms I wish that I could stop time.
I shared with her that I could never sell them
I would keep them forever.....
yes she's my Gracie girl
Happy weekend to all the lovelies
simply me kate xoxo
