She's Beautiful..and she's on the cover of a magazine.

My son brought home an angel one day.
I'll never forget that day because it was the 4th of July, we were preparing to head to a celebration picnic, and he brought her home while I still had my hair in curlers.
I knew the moment I saw her that two things were happening.
First of all, the torch was being passed to the newer and younger generation who had naturally wavy hair and no need for hot rollers. I was suddenly no longer as young as I liked to imagine myself.
And secondly, I knew she was ours.
I knew it after the first few moments of meeting her.
All it took was seeing the way they looked at each other, the eyes through which she saw my boy, and the way he saw her....
I t was obvious.
His life had been forever changed.
And so had ours.

To know her is to love her.

Our Maggie.


Her story is highlighted in this issue of Beautifully You and is well worth the read.
Written by Maggie, herself, and touching to the end.
God is good.
And we are ever so thankful for His gift of Maggie in our lives.
