I Stand Up for Lesley

Lesley loves kittens and never wants to go to sleep without them. Last night she crawled into their sleeping basket vowing to sleep next to them in their cozy bed.with them in their sleeping basket. Lesley is the youngest of my three children. I stand up for her because she gives me a reason to wake up every morning and share my life with the girls of LitClubs. She reminds me that life is a blessing that we should treasure. I chose to be around children for my life's work because children remind me of the precious little things in life.
