Are You Always Here?

David and I picked Emma Belle up Friday afternoon. When we were just pulling out of her subdivision I was asking her all about school, what she ate, what she did, did she make any new friends, etc., etc. She said, "Gammy, when I'm at school are you here?" I was somewhat confused, nothing new I know, and I said, "When you are in school I'm at my house." She said, "No, I mean when I'm at school are you always here.............hmmmmmmmmmmm.............when I'm at school are you always in my heart?" "Oh, Emma Belle, Gammy is always in your heart no matter where you are and you are always in my heart. I think about you every day and pray to Jesus that you have a good day and you do really well in school, you are ALWAYS in Gammy's heart." Tear, tear, cry, cry, isn't that the sweetest thing you ever heard?

Oh, and I thought I'd show you just how neglected my bunnies that I gave to Mackensie are. They really, really have it bad, don't they? Isn't that about the cutest thing you ever did see?

She is a very special child. Has some really grown up thoughts. I don't know her daddy, but I think she is a lot like her mommy.

Yes, that is the sweetest thing I've ever heard.

Alright lady, I just got passed my tears and here they come again!!! After we took Emma to school this morning Ava said that she wanted Emma to stay at home with her :( That broke my heart too. They are so sweet!

I've gotta say those bunnies have it made! They're living like royalty!

What a darling.
Thanks for nice comment in my blog and good luck with Victorian Lace Today. The hardest part with that book is to choose which project to make. They are all so beautiful and the book itself is wonderfull with all the amazing pictures. I often have a look in it just to admire the pictures.
