Hey aunt jeni:) I miss u and can wait to see u and I just want to say that! thank you so much for being there for me and always happy to listen to me and for being there and taking care me even when u live a lot miles away - haha- i just wanted to say that I wouldn't be the way I am if it wasn't for you and I know I'm only 16 but u have helped me through alot:) anyway u wanna hear something cool? I know I never met my grandpa combs but I woke up thinking about him which is weird because its fathers day and I never do think about him much because I never met him - I thought it was pretty awesome myself :D woo woo Kelsey
Words can't describe how I felt when I received the text message above from my precious niece Kelsey last night - Fathers Day 2012. My heart melted and a sense of purpose filled that hole in my heart that formed the day I lost my sister ~ Kelsey's mom. I prayed that I could be a positive influence in her children's life so many miles away. These beautiful words confirm that my prayers have been answered. As my SSS, Jen Dio said when I shared this message with her, "Wow. What a beautiful and amazing soul she is. She so strong and a true testament of Mary's goodness..... I know that this was all part of life's big plan. I know it's not always easy but things like this shake us back into what we know to be true in our hearts. There's a bigger plan for us all. And although it's not always apparent at first, it slowly starts to form as life goes on. I'm certain that you were meant to be their Earth Angel and they both know it. They love you so much." As I do them - As I do them I say!!
