from Amy

IT IS 9 O CLOCK MONDAY NIGHT AND I GET THE PLEASURE OF LAYING NEXT TO MY BABY GIRL AND WATCHING HER SLEEP. I WOULDN'T HAVE SAID THIS A WEEK AGO HAD SHE NEEDED ME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT. BOY, HOW MY MIND HAS CHANGED. SHE IS DECKED OUT TONIGHT IN FAKE NAILS (THANK YOU TACKETTS), BEADED BRACELET ( THANK YOU TO WHOEVER GAVE THE CINDERELLA BEADS), HOLDING NEW ADORABLE PUPPY SOPHIE (THANK YOU BLACKBURNS), WRAPPED UP IN CINDERELLA BLANKET (THANK YOU TRAYNHAMS), LAYING ON PILLOW PET ( THANK YOU WILLIAMS), WITH CHRISTMAS TREE AND ORNAMENTS RIGHT NEXT TO HER (THANK YOU THOMPSONS, VASKOS, STADALSKYS). SO MANY OTHER THINGS FILL THIS ROOM TONIGHT. IT IS A ROOM FILLED WITH SOME PAIN BUT LOTS AND LOTS OF LOVE. I CAN REST TONIGHT KNOWING I TOLD HER I LOVED HER, I SHOWED HER I LOVED HER, AND I TREASURE HER MORE TODAY THAN EVER. MAY THAT BE MY SAME GAMEPLAN TOMORROW. GOD, GIVE ME TOMORROW WITH MY SWEET ANSLEY. PLEASE GIVE ME TOMORROW.
