what are little boys made of ...

Allan Beck
"If I have a monument in this world, it is my son."
Author: Maya Angelou

"Build me a son, whose heart will be clear, whose goals will be high, a son who will master himself before he seeks to master other men, one who will learn to laugh, yet never forget to weep, one who will reach into the future, yet never forget the past."

Author: unknown

  10. AMEN! This is my son! Every thought of him brings me happiness and rewards.

    I was so deeply touched by your profile and video about your Mother.

    I am a breast cancer survivor and have a blog about my journey.

    I have been blogging about some health issues other than cancer as well..

    Though I did not have to have chemo..I did have radiation treatments. My heart goes out to all those affected by any disease...but especially cancer. My family has dealt with it many times.

    You have the FACE God gave you for this wonderful gift you have your mom. A lovely smile and bright eyes...she does too! You look so much a is precious that you gave her your silver threads and she gave you hers by the bracelet. A charming story of HOPE, LOVE and GIVING.

    I pray that as I write this...your mom is doing well...and you.

    God bless you with continued strength and His Grace. Romans 8:28 does say..ALL things work together for the good....

    as you said of so much you learned. Hold those lessons and share them.
