Tomorrow I'll Leap

                                              I shall keep a memory in my heart
                                              to draw upon when days are cold
                                              I'll cherish it and never part
                                              until I reach my finished goal

                                              I'll gather to me each smiling face
                                              a thousand days of time or more
                                              then I'll gaze upon with love and embrace
                                              all the tender moments like before

                                              I'll take that step and walk that mile
                                              until my yearning destiny I'll meet
                                              when I fall I'll stand and smile
                                              for tomorrow I'm going to leap

                                               Susie Swanson

                                          For you Amber..

Thank you for your prayers, she is slowly improving. They had to wire her jaws this week and she's getting used to it and looking better.. Bless her heart, she's an inspiration to everyone around her.. She still has a long road but she'll make it because she's young and strong..Her mother said she hasn't let it get her down to much yet, but I worry that she'll get depressed later on, so continue to keep her in your prayers and rest assured they are being answered.. Blessings, Susie
