Because I Love Them

Because I love them, my heart has grown to four times it's actual size in the past twenty-one years.  Because I love them, I love that they love each other.
Because I love them, I take great pleasure in the sisterly bond which binds them together for life.  I love that they are incredible individuals who take great strength in being one of four.
Because I love them, I want to know about their dreams and aspirations.  I want to see the world through their eyes.  Because I love them, I want to know their hearts.
And because I love them, I want them to learn how to set their own spirits onto the wind.  I want them to learn how to take flight.  Because I love them, I always want them to know where home is.  Because I love them...

May you take pleasure in the shear joy of loving someone else.  May you love someone enough to observe their flight with admiration and awe.  May you always be happy for what they accomplish because you love them...

Oh, Deb, that is so true! Isn't it just the best thing in the world to have the ability to love unconditionally and without reservation?

The loving bond of your family is just SO evident, and I think the loving bond between your four angel daughters is a direct offshoot of that. I love seeing pictures of your angels together; I always, always, always wanted a sister, and I think it is just the absolute best that each of your angels has THREE!

No matter where or what we come from, we can choose to love with our whole heart and soul, and the gifts we get back when we choose that are incredible...

Each one of your angel daughters have kindness radiating from their beautiful faces. There is no question that they are well-loved!

Love & Gentle Hugs, Deb..

I think you could have used the same photos and had the girls reply with...

because I was loved

It's so obvious that their beauty comes from the amazing way you nurture and adore them.

Like flowers that have exceeded the dedicated gardner's greatest dreams.

We've established that your girls are just beautiful!!! But, I have to say, those orange barrels in the background are soooo cool. I also wish I could take better pictures - like the one where your daughter is in focus but the candles are blurred. I love that!

You have the most lovely daughters and it obvious that it is not just on the outside but emanating from within as well.

"I am loved"...it is what radiates from your beautiful girls. Every one they meet will take a breath and wish they had been loved so purely. What a wonderful feeling that must be both as a daughter and a mother. Just beautiful...


check you e-mail Deb.
