Where Flowers Bloom There is Hope




Dear God,

You sent a child to me

To fill my life with joy,

And only You knew which was best --

A little girl or boy.

Somehow I took for granted, Lord,

That we would have a lifetime,

And I made so many future plans

For that precious child of mine.

Enchanted by that Miracle,

Caught up in each new day,

I guess I didn't hear You, Lord,

When You said, "This one can't stay."

I trust You, Lord. Thy will; not mine,

Yet I can't understand

This sudden loss -- the emptiness --

Caused by another's hand.

I know my child's an angel now

But my heart is aching so.

I'm sorry I wasn't ready, Lord,

To let my baby go.

There wasn't time for one last hug;

There was no final kiss.

Oh God, it's all those special smiles

That I already miss.

So Lord, could you do just one thing

For me especially?

Please hold my angel close to You

And say goodbye for me. Amen

If before you were born, I could have gone to Heaven and saw all the beautiful souls, I still would have chosen you.

If God had told me, "this soul will one day need extra care and needs", I still would have chosen you...

If He had told me, "that one day this soul may make my heart bleed", I still would have chosen you...

If He had told me, "this soul would make me question the depth of my faith", I still would have chosen you...

If He had told me, "this soul would make tears flow from my eyes that would overflow a river", I still would have chosen you...

If He had told me, "our time spent together here on earth could be short", I still would have chosen you..

If He had told me, "this soul may one day make me witness overbearing suffering", I still would have chosen you...

If He had told me, "all that you know to be normal would drastically change", I still would have chosen you...

Of course, even though I would have chosen you, I know it was God who chose me for you...

Thank you God for letting me be his Mommy…

"You are blessed when you have enough faith to hear the gentle whisper of an angel"


One day a Son died.


And on that clear, cold morning,

in the warmth of his bedroom,

the mom was struck with

the pain of learning that sometimes

there isn't any more.


No more hugs,

no more lucky moments to celebrate together,

no more phone calls just to chat,

No more 'just one minute'


Sometimes, what we care about the most goes away.

never to return before we can say good-bye,

Say 'I Love You.'


So while we have it . . it's best we love it . .

And care for it and fix it when it's broken

and take good care of it when it's sick.


This is true for marriage .... and friendships ..


And children with bad report cards;

And dogs with bad hips;

And aging parents and grandparents

We keep them because they are worth it,

Because we cherish them!


Some things we keep --

like a best friend who moved away

or a classmate we grew up with.

There are just some things that

make us happy, No matter what..


Life is important,

and so are the people we know

And so, we keep them close!



Thank you very much for

being a special part of MY Life!




Keep on smiling and surely
the sun will shine through.
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest,
remembering all how I was truly blessed.
