The Perfect Christmas Gift In a small bag, made of paper, the color of gold, old not new... The handwritten letters, of a handful of kids, left adrift in a big sea. You gave them a home, a place they were safe. You gave them hope, when the storms were full, of dread. Drugs and bad nights, screaming and not stopping... You were the rock, because: You, believe(d) in Him, and that helped everything, be better. Papa, I love you... Papa, I am doing fine. Papa, I think of you, every day and most of the time. You were the father we never had, the friend and angel that God sent. Lastly, a short note, on one side, and a picture on the back... Grandpa and Joshua "I love you, Grandpa." Amen.

I read the letters... his grandkids... are so cool... It was a magic little bag... My kids are autistic, I don't get bags... but I get pictures sometimes from my son. The ones he draws with him and me. The rest make no sense really... God give you a lovely day. Hugs. Ann
