august...

august angel...
happy angel...
my favorite angel...
I knew when I was little she was my angel...
for when she came out front and center...
it would soon be my birthday...
back when that was a very good thing...
to be older...
a higher grade in school...
bigger shoes and clothes...
from tricycle to bicycle...
from baby dolls to puppy love...
from nap time to chores...
and the years slid by...
and the older part isn't as exciting...
but I'm grateful for every one of them...
they brought me right here...
right now...
and it's a good thing...
because those years were mainly filled with love...
with hugs...
with joy...
with laughter...
more than enough to overcome the sadness...
and the tears...
enough to heal a broken heart...
and come out whole again...
and that is always a good thing...

Hi Tete... thanks so much for your visit today.. Rebeca told me your from "Cent. Illinois" also.. Yes, I lived in Champaign and truly loved the area! But life moved me away and I sure miss the "Corn Fields" and the people but not the winters! I'm a new follower and will be back to visit again!
