Tuesday Tribute

Tuesday's Tribute
A Jay and Deb Production.
14 years ago today I was expecting one of the best things that has ever happened to me. My daughter was due....but of course like most other 1st pregnancies...we had to wait....5 more days before she would finally decide to show up, which is another post later this week. But this is a poem i wrote her at Christmas time.

I have a China Doll
She’s beautiful and so fair
And when she needs anything
I will always be right here
Eyes as blue as the sky
Hair so pretty and long
This China Doll is my heart and soul
She’s so special in every way
For this doll I will have tried to do everything and more
And for her I’ll never stray
My China Doll is my daughter
Emily Dawn
If you haven’t guessed by now
She is my heart, my soul, my life
I’ll be here for her forever
Emily Dawn you are my China Doll!

I love you always!

That is just so sweet! I was on bed rest with ALL FOUR! so I kept journals for them. I try to write in them every birthday, milestone or just because. Maybe someday they'll be intrested in reading them.

Um YOU ROCK.. $89 already!!! Heck I've had ads since day ONE (nearly four months ago).. and I'm only at $53!!! I've had nearly 6000 hit but nobody clicks.. DARN IT! SO I'm here clicking some more.. maybe you'll hit that magic $100 and get a check soon!

I love the poem. It really got to me because I used to call my oldest daughter my little china doll when she was a baby because her face just looked like a perfect little china doll face.
