THE GIFT

I remember a time not so long ago. I watched her play and watched her grow. Then one day there came a time. She gave us a gift her child this time. When I grow old moving slower and gray. I will always remember our gift this way…

    dear chuck….you have such a gift…a way of creating such emotion…with your photos, with your words….you present life in a simple, profound way, my friend…..i am so deeply moved by this…i do not have the words to express how this touches me…..you are a beautiful soul….

  • The gift Jan are people like you.. I think we seek goodness we find in others so we can give it back without fear.. Fear is the true mind killer.. Always today’s ..May you find joy each of the today’s eternal Jan.. Thanks..
