This book is my heart. It is my legacy for my children and their children. It is for the heart of the child in all of us that we encase with armor as we age and face the world. By the grace of God, from whom all miracles and blessings flow, may these words inspire you and help you smile as these ladies have inspired me: Paula, Sandra, and Cindy, for your belief in me; Joyce, for all your good works and beautiful smile; Celine, for your songs and truest heart; and Marlo, for being an angel of mercy for so many! May God bless and keep you all, amen.
