A Special Evening

We went to the Church play tonight and it was so cute! I love the children in our church! They are all so sweet to me. The older teens had the big parts, but all the children had parts, even the smallest. We sat up front so I could see everything.

One little lamb, about 2 years old, had the cutest little outfit. He had on a little white sweat suit, a hood with black ears and a small black tail. His little nose had been painted black too. This precious little fellow began crying quietly in all the commotion. I motioned for him to come to me and he came!

He crawled up in my lap and snuggled down as content as if he had always known me. He fell asleep in my arms and I am not sure that that has ever happened to me before. It was such a wonderful feeling I had tears in my eyes. I believe I could have sat contentedly with him all night. I hated to give him back to his mom. It wasn’t in the cards for me to be a mother. But tonight was very special to me.

Aw, Cassie, how incredible for both of you... you found each other just when you both needed it most! But your wrong about it not being in the cards for you... you've filled that role for me many times over and I'm no longer motherless because of you! You've filled a hole in my heart and a rip in my soul! I love you! (I'll email later... back to bed for now... it's too early to be up).

Huge hugs and love,
Tiggs

Cassie I would love to have a picture of this, although I can see it quite clearly! Sounds like a great evening.

Tiggr,
You are the closest I will ever have to a daughter. I am so proud and happy that you think of me this way.

Theresa,
Thank you for saying so, but at the time when I could have had a child I don't think that I would have done a very good job.

Paul, Eva, Elis,
It was a lovely feeling. It's one Christmas program that I will always remember.

There's nothing like that feeling...such warmth and peace that steals over you. I'm glad that happened to you - a gift of the season.

Hugs,
Sarah
