i realize this isn't the best quality picture but i wanted to post her prior to 4th of July. My step daughter Mackenzie has an amazing way with words and is quite the poet. She writes many things that give me goosebumps! About 3 years ago she wrote a poem titled "Journey" which is written next to my sweet little Independence Day Heart Wing Sister. This is one of my surprises for her so I need to get her finished up.


You're sitting there watching me with your big, bold eyes,

wondering what I will do next.

You're waiting for me to run with you freely

through the pastures of faith,

the meadows of trust,

the forests of bravery and the mountains of glory.

Then, looking over the high peak mountain top

is the prettiest symbol of all

The American Flag.

It stands for freedom,

retelling the way wars ended, how the West was truly won,

What we, the People of America are doing here on Earth,

and how hard soldiers fight four our FREEDOM.

My plan is to collaborate many more of my Heart Wing Sisters with Mackenzie's amazing way with words! It is so fun to be creative with my children.

I hope you all have a blessed 4th of July and lovely summer.
