George's Guardian's of Grace Projects
Stocking project is now in full force collecting donations. We have a list of the items we can use. You can also choose to sponsor a stocking in memory or honor of someone else. We will include a paragraph or two in the cards we place in the stockings to let the recipient know about the person that means so much to you. Our paypal account is posted on this page and ready to take donations. Email us for a list of items needed or with any questions or information you would like included on a sponsored stocking/donation.

A Walk to Remember
I walk to remember the steps you'll never take.
I carry you with me as I firmly plant my feet.
Our trek started so long ago,
before my belly swelled.
You were a love that grew
like butterfly wings that beat.
Your gentle flutters then became kicks
upon which I would dwell.
And I would talk to you, sweet babe,
about the world you soon would meet.
The sun always shown upon us then-
when you were in my womb.
And I was eager to show you the world,
that would have been your home.
How you'd have loved the sun shining-
blue skies without a cloud.
The autumn leaves turning-
the snow falling all around.
The flowers in the summer-
would have filled your eyes with smiles,
And the rain that might have fallen
would have caused you great surprise.
You would have traveled far with me-
holding me by the hand.
And I'd have shown you all I could-
more than I can imagine.
You hold my heart tightly now,
as though we're holding hands.
How far we've traveled little one-
and my life with you has been sweet.
For I carry you in my heart as I firmly plant my feet.
