    remember when I asked you
    if Jesus brought us together?

    I had been learning about
    Jesus at that church you
    made me go to every week

    and they had said
    that all things work together
    for good to them that love
    Him

    well, I sho was feeling like
    He loved me because
    of that day when you
    came and got me from that
    home for children didn't
    nobody want...

    suddenly I had a whole family

    and Lord knows I needed to
    feel like I belonged to something
    wards of the court don't have
    no soul

    But I began to feel my soul coming
    when you took me to my new home

    remember when I asked you if
    you would ever love me as much
    as my sisters and my brother?

    remember what you said?

    you said...

    "sweetiemeat, I had two little girls barely
    out of diapers, and a baby in my womb
    when I laid eyes on you...already 11 years
    old and full of bad habits I couldn't even imagine
    and I still chose you"


    All things work together for the good to those who love the Lord....

    May He continue bless you with many, many more years of love to share!

    Ms Shadeelady:

    Thank you so much for writing on her. She is a most awesome and unique person and poet. You were and are blessed indeed.
    This poem will definitely warm her soul, even as it did mine reading it.

    Thanks for showing your appreciation before a cloud of witnesses.

    :)

    Sweetiemeat... I remember. I'm overcome with emotions I can't even describe (and you know how that frustrates me :) )...Extreme love always renders me speechless!

    Thank you baby. :heart:
