She grins just like Kermit....

Some of you will have no idea what I am talking about but I am going to share this anyway (mainly for family that read this blog ; aka.. my sisters and my mom and my aunt).

Today I had to run to the store to get some soap because I was out of laundry detergent and I had about 6 loads of laundry to do. I put Lily in the front of the cart and Claire in the part where you put groceries. We were walking down the aisle looking for soap and my Uncle Kermit's lifetime neighbor comes around the corner. She stops me and says, " That baby(Lily) grins just like Kermit. I mean it, she looks just like him with blonde hair. She is such a doll and you are so blessed to have such a precious reminder of Kermit."

I quickly thanked her with tears rolling down my face and hurried around the corner to the register. What a precious thing to say to me. She will never know the gift she gave me today.

We miss you so much, Kermit. Life is not the same without your smiling face. I have been reading your Dick and Jane books to Claire & Lily. I know that you are reading in heaven. I love you. "G"

*I am going to try and upload some pictures later. I can't get it to work right now. *I still can't get Kermit's picture to load, I am having to scan it. I will try again later. Hopefully, I can get it posted.
