He made me cry!

Look what Adam gave me for Christmas -

Adam's calendar gift - February

January and February.  This might be the last time I get a paint print of his hands.

Adam's calendar gift - March
March came with a poem.  A poem that made me cry as I tried to read it aloud Christmas morning.

Adam was very happy with himself for being able to make me cry.

And I think it makes the gift extra special.

Adam's calendar gift - Close up of March's poem
"I am an older brother, and a kind person.
I wonder when life will be found on another planet.
I hear songs all around me.
I see life story's unfold.
I want for peace to last forever.
I am an older brother, and a kind person.

I pretend for every game.
I feel the pain of others.
I touch my inner thoughts.
I worry species will end.
I cry when they do end.
I am an older brother, and a kind person.

I understand the problems of our environment.
I say we can fix them all.
I dream when that day will come.
I try to make it come quicker.
I hope others will help.
I am an older brother, and a kind person.
