I tried to make this post last night but really couldn't. You see, I spent Thursday and Friday at a childrens bereavement camp as one of the councelors and emotionally I was drained. Every five minutes I'd burst into tears, these poor children at 6 or 7, the things they have had to deal with is overwhelming - It's hard as an adult to deal with a death of a parent or other loved one. I had one of those little ones in my arms crying, my heart just ached. She then stopped and looked up at me, her eyes still wet with tears and she pasted a bright smile on her face and said "Happy Birthday" - I just melted, that image will be with me as long as I live.
At lunch the kids and staff sang happy birthday to me and brought out this beautiful cake, I was beyond touched.
Here are a few pages before my old camera ran out of memory space :o\
This whole book is filled with wonderful things - THANK YOU, again, Susan...my day was truly perfect!.........................at the Shores
