Children ~ The Most Precious Gift


Today I'm walking down memory lane. . .

My friend since high school, RuthAnn, always dreamed of having a little girl. Her dream came through with the adoption of precious Diana whom RuthAnn has loved and enjoyed so much! Life has included both "sugar and spice" and "snakes and snails" with Diana in the family. But, not matter how much tomboy there is in her little girl, RuthAnn has always been faithful in teaching the important things in life, including the "art of afternoon tea". Here is Diana at six years old, at tea with her friend, Haley. This scene is most precious to me.

  2. I am like you friend and always dreamed of little girls and tea parties. I was blessed with two (even though all my friends said I needed a boy to shack things up) and lots of tea parties.

    I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!
