The Power of Words

A couple of weeks ago, we received a poem in the mail from Gracie’s Great Aunt Vickie.  She lives in Michigan, thus we haven’t seen her for a long time, but we are so thankful for her kind words and support. She has sent Gracie many gifts, but this poem was really the greatest gift of all.  Aunt Vickie said that when she wakes up in the middle of the night, and things weigh heavily on her mind, it helps her to write about them. Thus, she composed this poem for Grace at 1:45am on 9/29/10.  So, this week, Gracie asks you to write something from you heart and then give it to someone that you love.  It will make you feel all that much better.

I see a beautiful baby in a picture on her site
I wish I was there to hold her, 
Even just for one night.
She’s so precious with her head full of hair
And eyes of deep blue.
All the beautiful outfits
I know that some may be from you.
It seems that one of her favorite times 
Is walking with mom and dad
And, of course, Bodie the doggy too. 
This is when she is never sad. 
You see, Gracie has so much love around her,
Holly and Brien and all the other people too 
And you can see why god has left her here,
To show her all that’s new. 
We love you Grace Elizabeth!
