8 year old dreams

While watching the "Love Comes Softly" and etc. marathon on the Hallmark channel, Angel turned to us and asked "Poppa, will you 'give me away'?" A lengthy pause followed, as Poppa considered that future day...I teasingly interjected "No, he won't give you away because he doesn't want you to go anywhere!!!" But she smiled widely at the thought, contentedly knowing she "belongs" with us and in that belonging rests protection, provision, and parenting...

I wonder who will earn her heart away from her Poppa's!!
