Heaven's Child

I wanted to share this poem that my friend, Becky, wrote for Jillian. I love reading it, and plan to put it in a frame with her picture. It means so much Becky, thank you!
(Click on the poem to make it bigger)

Tonight I was also going through and reading all of our cards(there is a lot, I even had to have Candi make me another card box to hold them all) but anyway, I came across one card that just really hit me, I love it so I thought I would share----
A butterfly lands near us,
and for a brief moment,
its beauty belongs to our world...
...but then it flies on again,
and though we wish
it could have stayed,
we feel so lucky
to have seen it.
For some reason, that just really stuck out to me.....and I think of Jillian every time I see a little butterfly, so this card was perfect! So were all the others, so many nice cards, and nice things people have said.....it great to have such wonderful friends and family.
