This morning i came across these pictures of Carson . My eyes welled up with tears, which were soon streeeeaming down my face... and I knew instantly what i was thankful for today!
Today, I am SO Thankful that i have been given the chance to LOVE this sweet little boy.
I mean, any of you that know me, even just a little bit, know that it is fairly easy for me to love children... but the chance that i have been given to LOVE Carson and Courtney is extra special. The love i have for them is extra special.
Many of you might not know, but it was Carson's Mommy that ultimately introduced Bart & I.
Kristi, Carson & Courtney's Mommy, passed away this last January-ending her long battle with Cancer. The week before she passed away, she gave Bart my name. He added my name to a list they had been compiling. He had no idea who i was, & thought that he would be stuck mowing the lawn of some 80 year old woman. Well, of course that was not the case-and a fairytale love story adventually began, all thanks to Kristi.
We miss her, but I will be forever indebted & grateful to her for what she has given me. She, for some reason... saw something in me & allowed me to be a part of, share & has allowed me to love her family. For that... there just aren't enough words of Gratitude.
Today, I am Thankful for this sweet face. Carson.
