~ find your "sparkle" ~

the
language of
one's
eyes
*
I
adore
my
sweet daughter's
green eyes
{a gift to her from my dear husband}



Her eyes
reflect
a
beautiful
light
a
"sparkle"
a
"twinkle"
they are
the
window into her
sweet
soul
*
do you know someone
that always has
that
certain
"sparkle"
*
my wish
is that we
all find
that
special
" light"
this coming year

Her eyes are the most beautiful green -- like God's green earth, like His luscious trees swinging in the wind, like His flawless, sparkling emeralds! What a touching and sweet post, Koralee! Happy New Year, my friend! I pray that 2010 will be one of abundant blessings for you and your family.

I wish I had her skin! Oh, to be photographed that close and look that gorgeous! My son's eyes sparkle (they are almost black) when he is happy. He lost his sparkle for a few years...but, I see it once in a while now and I melt.

Hi, Koralee,
Your daughter is such a sweetheart (like her mom)! I love the innocence of children and their unconditional love. My grandchildren are the sweetest spirits I know, and it is reflected in their eyes. Hope your weekend has been beautiful and best wishes for a terrific week! Thank you always for your kind visits and remarks. Vicki

Koralee
What a sweet sweet soul you are.
You need to write a book.
I would have to have it with all of your lovely little thoughts to brighten and enlighten my days!
Yes you are right!
Your daughter does have beautiful twinkling eyes.
I have a feeling they twinkle and shine with so much of the GLOW that you have created for her over the years.
Surely you are going to print and frame that picture which is PERFECTION!
Thanks for the sweet comments you leave for me to find!
It always makes me SMILE when I know I have a comment from my dear sweet Koralee!

How cute!My girls got their eye color from me.My husbands eyes were brown.I have blue eyes.They say in couples the blue eyes are dominate over another eye color.I guess that was true in our case.
