Happy Birthday To My Sister

Today I'm here to tell you how much I love you, 
miss you and think about you every day.

Happy Birthday xox

If Sisters Were Flowers, I'd Always Pick You.
I'd Let the Sun Shine So You'd Never Be Blue.
I'd Show the World How Beautifully You Grew,
With Bright Bold Colors and Strength
Through and Through

When tomorrow starts..

September 25th, 2012

When tomorrow starts without me
and I'm not here to see...
If the sun should rise and find your
eyes filled with tears for me

I wish so much you wouldn't cry
the way you did today...
While thinking of the may things 
we didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you...
And each time you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.

When tomorrow starts without me,
don't think we're far apart...
For every time you think of me,
I'm right there in your heart.

There is a bridge....

Between parent and child there is a bridge, which neither time nor death can shatter; each stands at one end, waiting to cross, and unite for eternity.

~ Author Unknown

I wonder if people understand?

I Wonder If People
Understand What it is to Miss You

It isn't about accepting that you are gone
I am acutely aware that you are not here
It isn't about moving on
I move forward but you are no further from my mind
It isn't about forgetting you
You are still the first thing I think about in the
morning and the last thing at night
It is about learning to not reach for the phone
I miss sharing my joys and sorrows with you
It is about not feeling your loving arms hug me
I miss the intensity of your love
It is about no longer sitting and talking
I miss hearing about your hopes and dreams
It is about thinking about you every day
I miss you every day--

Until we meet again..

The Bond God Made

I'm sorry that I couldn't stay. I wanted to, you know,
but my time on earth had ended so God said I had to go.

Do you know that I still love you?

 Do you know that I still care?
Just because you cannot see me, 
doesn't mean that I'm not there.

I will be there in the darkness. 
I will be there in the rain.
I will be there when you're happy. 
I will be there through your pain.

Death can't destroy the bond God made or the love that we still share.
Our hopes, our dreams, our thoughts are one.
Trust your heart, and know I'm there.

So keep the faith. Don't give up hope. 

One day you'll understand.
God "is" still great and God "is" good. 
Now live the life he planned.
A Bond Unspoken... 
Can Never Be Broken...

Until we meet again,

I love you

Turn again to life...

Inspired by: Mary Lee Hall

If I should have to go and leave you here a while,
be not like those that are broken and sad,
keeping long vigil by the silent dust.

For me and my memory, please turn again to life and smile,
even though your heart is heavy and hand trembling.

For me try to do something that brings you happiness and joy.
Enjoy the days and complete these dear unfinished tasks of mine
of simply knowing you're happy and smiling.

If I should have to go and leave you here a while,
always know I am all around you and it brings me joy hearing you laugh.

One day I caught myself smiling...

It's the feeling in your heart... xox

I thought of you and closed my eyes.
And prayed to God today.
I asked what makes a mother and
I know I heard him say,

A mother has a baby.
This we know is true.
But God, can you be a mother
when your child is not with you?

Yes, you can, He replied
with confidence in His voice.
I give many women children.
When they leave is not their choice.

Some I send for a lifetime
and others for a day.
And some I send to feel your womb
but there’s no need to stay.

I just don’t understand this. God,
I want my child here.
He took a breath and cleared His throat
and then I saw a tear.

I wish I could show you
what your child is doing today.
If you could see him smile
with other loved ones and say,

“We go to earth to learn our lessons
of life and love and fear.
My Mother loved me, Oh so much,
I got to come straight here.

I feel so lucky to have a Mom
who had so much love for me,
I learned my lesson very quickly.
My full heart set me free.

I miss my Mother, Oh so much,
but I visit her each day.
When she goes to sleep,
on her pillow is where I lay.

I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek
and whisper in her ear,
‘Mom don’t be sad today,
I’m by your side and I’m here.’”

So you see, my dear sweet one,
your children are okay.
Your son is here in MY home
and wrapped in my love, safe is his stay.

He'll wait for you with me
until your lesson is through.
And on the day that you come home,
he'll be at the gates for you.

So now you see what makes a Mother—
It’s the feeling in your heart.
It’s the love you had so much of,
right from the very start.
