    How sad that such situations exist, but often little lives are the hope and flame of faith for the incarcerated fathers all over America. With new life there is always hope and new love to be found. Beautiful and bittersweet.

    elayne,
    From one "daddy's gyrl" to another
    Thanks for feelin' me.

    sherykah,
    Yep, and as they say the truth can hurt.
    Thank you Teach! :)

    shaz,
    It is often true.
    I wonder if many of them
    know the precious moments
    they've missed out on...

    Reason,
    I couldn't imagine it either.
    I cherish the wonderful
    memories mentioned.

    Heartbeat,
    "sobering" Word!
    I pleased you enjoyed the read

    Legacy21,
    "often little lives are the hope and
    flame of faith for the incarcerated fathers
    all over America."

    That maybe true...but what's lost
    can never be regained.


    Going to work for 8 hours
    we can miss out on special
    moments in our children's lives...
    imagine 8 years!

    Thanks everyone for taking time
    to read my thoughts and respond.
    It's appreciated, Bigtime!


    Coco :heart:
