Keeping warm and thinking about angels...

Dad says that Spring is around the corner, but it's still very cold here, so we find different ways of keeping warm.
1. Put a woolen hat on your head
Make sure it's looks nice with your clothes
2. Wear a warm coat
3. Snuggle with someone you love
"I love you my dear sister"

Anyone can be an angel, all you need to do is love.

May angels rest beside your door,
May you hear their voices sing.
May you feel their loving care for you,
May you hear their peace bells ring.
May angels always care for you and not let you trip and fall,
May they bear you up on angel's wings,
May they keep you standing tall.
May they whisper wisdom in your ear,
May they touch you when you need,
May they remove from you each trace of fear,
May they keep you from feeling greed.
May they fill you with their presence,
May they show you love untold,
May they always stand beside you and make you ever bold.
May they teach you what you need to know about life here and here-after.
May they fill you always with their love  and give you the gift of laughter

"Be an angel to someone else whenever you can, as a way of thanking God for the help your angel has given you." - Eileen Elias Freeman
"We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another." - Luciano de Crescenzo

We will have to remember your advice when winter comes around again. Yesterday was 110 degrees here, so we are trying to figure out ways to stay cool! We love your poem and the pictures of you and your brother, Ollie, loving each other. This is always such a sweet place to visit! The CCC
