I missed your actual delivery date. But, you have been in my thoughts and prayers. I am so proud of you! If you need any info on coping with the c-section, link me in email or PM. Jawi876@yahoo.com. Please kiss your beautiful angel for me. :innocent::dance:(L)(F)(F)(L)

God's Masterpiece Is Mother

God took the fragrance of a flower...

The majesty of a tree...

The gentleness of morning dew...

The calm of a quiet sea...

The beauty of the twilight hour...

The soul of a starry night...

The laughter of a rippling brook...

The grace of a bird in flight...

Then God fashioned from these things

A creation like no other,

And when his masterpiece was through

He called it simply - Mother.

- Herbert Farnham


According to God's favor...Happily married on 09~09~09
