If I used the word hopeful before, it was not even close to how I felt when my “Brown Baby” first saw her new brown rocking horse. It sent me back to my seven year old self when I received a rocking horse for christmas. This is my letter to my great grand girl about her future based on my past seventy one years. I hope you ride your beige and brown pony into a blessed life with all the smiling adults supporting you as they did today. I hope you still have the joy and the dance you had when your musical bears, dolls, and all those many sounds of music as we heard today. I hope you know how much we enjoy you in this 15 months you have been with us . I am hopeful because I have been blessed to look into the sunset and know that the sun will rise and set because the bible tells us so. I hope you know that we love you today, tomorrow and forever.via Daily Prompt: Hopeful

I can only repeat the words. ” Bless the Lord O my soul, Bless His holy name.”
