Wonder-Filled Day

Hello  my sweet friends, praying that you have all enjoyed your weekend. I know I have. My niece, Kelli, that I have loved like a daughter, since the day she was born. Called, and asked me if I was free. I said, yes, why?  She said she had several errands to run, and would Eddie and I, like to keep Zachary for a few hours.  Woo Hoo, of course, I said. Zachary is my precious great nephew, love him more than words can say. So, she dropped him off at our apartment, and away we three went to Walmart. Of course, the first thing we did, was put a huge bottle of apple juice in the buggy, he inhales that stuff, lol Then, Uncle Eddie burnt rubber straight to the toy department, Zach, was sitting up front in the buggy, giving Eddie driving directions.  Aunt Nesie was trying her best to speed walk beside the buggy, Zach kept saying, in a very loud, but oh, so cute voice, Come on Aunt Nesie, toys, toys!! When we got to the toy department, we had to go down every aisle, not once, but twice.  We had to stop every time he spotted something that grabbed his attention, which was quite often.  He has suddenly becoome interested in spiders, his mom bought him one a couple of weeks ago. So, Aunt Nesie was on the hunt for spiders, and I finally found one.  He was so excited, spider, spider, woo hoo. Well, we left Walmart, but not before buying Zach, apple juice, a spider, a frog, a dinosaur, and a big helicopter. He was so happy, could not wait to get back to our apartment, so he could fly his big helicopter with Aunt Nesie.  It was a fire department rescue helicopter, that made it even better. His dad is a fireman.  He kept saying, Aunt Nesie, I am going to fly you to the stars, way up in the sky, and then to the hospital, to get you all better. Bless his precious heart. When his mom came to pick him up, he said, no, I want to stay with Aunt Nesie, and fly my helicopter. As they were walking out the door, he kissed me, hugged me, and said, thanks for my helicopter, I love you Aunt Nesie.  I had a wonder-filled day , through the eyes of Zach.  Thanks Lord, for blessing my life with Zach.  I truly enjoyed the helicopter ride!!

Now there's a little guy with miracales stored in his heart! I pray his helicopter is as powerful to heal you as he believes it is.

Oh, Denise - so precious.

Children just have the sweetest, most innocent little hearts. No wonder Jesus loved children. Their love is pure.

I'm so glad that you had such a wonderful day, and I'm with Zachary. I'm praying that Aunt Nesie is healed soon, too. But, I'll tell you one thing - her heart is already soaring, loving the Lord!

GOD BLESS!

What a beautiful day you had. There's nothing like the little ones to raise our spirits. I can tell you are flying high.

WOO HOO!!! This so delights my heart Denise to hear that you were able to enJOY a SUPER weekend because of Zach and time with him and Eddie, being a kid and having some fun!

I'm so glad that you enjoyed your helicopter ride and the blessing you are to him as he is to you! Hope he did not wear you out but made you tired enough to sleep pain free! I love his sweet words to you for healing! I totally agree!

Many blessings, love, joy and a BIG HUG,
Peggy
