Kristina's Color Challenge #54 You are my Sunshine



"You are my Sunshine" this card is in honor of two cutie pies... My dearest daughter Abbie and my Sunshine in the middle of the night Sankari. Sense Abbie was a baby I have always sang the song "You are my Sunshine" to her.. She still crinkles up her little body and has a HUGE smile on her face and soul when I sing this song to her... I always felt so guilty singing this song to my next baby because this was our song... Maybe because she was in the next room and I was singing it to some one else... Abbie is 11 now, but she is still my little Abbie.. She is a little girls lost in the sea of "BIG" Little and big brothers... I love that she is a short little gal...


Sankari is the Sunshine in the middle of the night when all the world is a sleep but us! Literally!  We are totally crazy and keep late hours... Last night we chatted for almost 2 hours.. We both had to get up REALLY early but it's always worth it to me... Sankari has the sunniest personalist and always has a very cheerful hello and good by.. I always have my soul warmed when I am around Sankari... Even thought we are MILES away!  I love you girlie!

Hugs to you both..
Brooke(mama)
