If you follow my twin Dayle you know all about her granddaughter Arabella Marie. I can't believe she's five months old now, and my love for her grows and grows. I wish I could see her every day, but I kiss her face as often as I can. Here are just a few pictures of me and my beloved grand niece.
I fell in love instantly with this beautiful bundle of joy.
After a hard day at work, she lifts my spirits without doing a thing.
Easter Sunday with proud Memaw and Big Sister.
Pure innocence, staring at me. Isn't she heavenly?
Before heading for an Astro's game, I sing her a tune.
The best part of my day—Arabella.
Giving me reasons to smile on Saturday.
Since the birth of my own granddaughter two years, ago, I've often sung the Oak Ridge Boys' tune "Thank God For Kids." My favorite line says: "The nearest thing to heaven is a child." Until next time, my friends, please pray for children everywhere, born or unborn. ♦
