Sleeping Beauty

One of my Very Favorite People in the Whole Wide World would have to be my friend, Joy. My mama and I moved to this town when I was three and Joy was just six months old. We lived on the same street with three houses between us. Joy was my living baby doll and the sister I didn't have all rolled into one. I adored her.
The love remained as we grew. Even though we had other friends, we were always close. We would fight, but we'd make up again. Just like sisters. She was my maid of honor and I was her matron of honor.
She now lives about an hour away and has children pretty close in age to Brooke and Morgan - a girl and a boy. Two years ago, when her youngest was about seven, God gave her a special surprise.

That surprise is Jenna. Joy and Jenna came to visit today. Joy and I went to the new house and Morgan and Jenna were swinging, then then went inside to watch Spirit. And then she fell asleep. Doesn't she look just like a baby angel? Look at those long eyelashes and adorable ringlets.

She looks just like my Living Baby Doll from years ago. :^) I love you, Joy. And all your beautiful children. But THIS one, you can leave at my house forever and always!
