sent a child to me
fill my life with joy,
only You knew which was best --
little girl or boy.
I took for granted, Lord,
we would have a lifetime,
I made so many future plans
that precious child of mine.
by that Miracle,
up in each new day,
guess I didn't hear You, Lord,
You said, "This one can't stay."
trust You, Lord. Thy will; not mine,
I can't understand
sudden loss -- the emptiness --
by another's hand.
know my child's an angel now
my heart is aching so.
sorry I wasn't ready, Lord,
let my baby go.
wasn't time for one last hug;
was no final kiss.
God, it's all those special smiles
I already miss.
Lord, could you do just one thing
hold my angel close to You
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
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
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!
