Ms. Anne is blessed by the Lord with such a beautiful life. I've been showered as well through her grandchildren, notably Rebekah and her parents and sisters.
As I write this, I turned to my own grandson, sound asleep and whispered to him... "My grandchild, Grandpa was in Charlotte and he met wonderful people whom God loves and blesses so much. I pray that Ms Anne's love from the Lord, passes onto you, as it was given onto me, a stranger from the Philippines, who was accepted by Ms Anne's loved ones as well!"
Thank you so much Lord for this blessing I would cherish for the rest of my life.
Thank you so much, Ms Anne.
