What can I say that I haven't said or thought a million times! How BLESSED we have been since Christa came into our lives. Her joyful spirit are so very encouraging in good and bad times! She truly loves the Lord and though she is not perfect (she has us as parents afterall!), she is about as perfect a daughter than anyone could ask for! Today she is a 1/4 century old! So hard to believe that she has been on this earth so long! Where did the time go?
Christa was not "born" into our family, but the Lord placed a special little girl into this mother's lonely arms many years ago and I am forever grateful! There is a plaque that has hung in our children's rooms since the day they came into our home. It contains this beautiful sentiment:
Not flesh of my flesh nor bone of my bone,
But still miraculously my own.
Never forget for a single minute,
you didn't grow under my heart, but in it.
I love you, Christa!!!
