The "All Nations Green
Corn Festival and Powow" was being held in Bland Va.
There were so many lovely
Indian ladies around and one I met in particular was Julie Carter.
She told stories of Indian legends. I noticed how much attention
the children paid to her. It inspired me.
I bought a book about
Indians and their heritage and one story caught my attention, it was
about a rose, it was a Cherokee Rose. The rose bloomed because of
the tears that were shed by many Indian maidens and mothers. The
story was called the Trail of Tears. I tell you this because it has
so much to do with why I purchased Summer Rose.
While shopping in town my
sister Deneice and I went into store. There were many dolls, all
beautiful but for some reason I kept going back to this particular
doll. I would pick her up and then place her back on the shelf, but
for some reason I couldn't leave her there.
I believe there are signs
given to us for many different reasons, to bring our talents to the
front and to be used of God to bless others.
Summer Rose's birthday
is in April of 2008 and my authenticity numbers are 177, also her name is Summer Rose, like the Cherokee Rose.. These are magic
numbers for me because the numbers in my life are the number 17
and my son was born in April. It was a perfect relationship between
Summer Rose and myself. My sister Deneice purchased the doll for me
which was also meant to be and here's the story why. The next
few days I decided to go through Amanda Grace's closet and
there on a hanger was an outfit that had never been worn with a
tweedy bird on it, which is the name we all call my sister. The
outfit she has on was here waiting for her to wear, another sign
she, "Summer Rose", was meant to be where she is today.
hope to say there will be stories to come from the meeting of two
My imagination will somehow make
"Summer Rose " real in the hearts of children as I
travel through time in their hearts and minds.
