Seeing all of the smiles and events from your summer Maria, remind me of how quickly time goes by and how many things happen in such a short space in time! It is fun to look back on the past season and look forward to this new one. Which just so happens to be my favorite!
Love Di ♥

Maria, thank you for all the smiles you have brought into my life. You had an enchanted summer with your beautiful family. I think about you often as you get ready to go back to teaching and how fortunate your students are to have you as their teacher. Hope your daddy is doing well. I know he is thankful for your tender care. Happy September to you, dear friend~Vicki

I firmly believe there is ministry in a smile. I love to watch the reactions when I take the time to give one away.
These are beautiful Maria.

Dianne said...

Thank God for memories, and cameras! Aren't these just priceless--to those who felt the joy while giving them and to those who received them and now to your friends who love you and yours.

God bless you, sweet Maria. Will be praying for you Tuesday and you start a new "light year"--a year in which to let your light shine to all your new students.

Many many blessings,
