For Mom........

I miss you Mom J
I hope you and Papa are taking care of each other
I feel you with me
I know you watched over me on Monday
Thank you for being there

Oh, Emily

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all.

ease my troubles thats what you do.....

(picture courtesy of Sara)
Have I told you lately that I love you
Have I told you theres no one else above you
Fill my heart with gladness
Take away all my sadness
Ease my troubles thats what you do

For the morning sun in all its glory
Greets the day with hope and comfort too
You fill my life with laughter
And somehow you make it better
Ease my troubles thats what you do
Theres a love thats divine
And its yours and its mine like the sun
And at the end of the day
We should give thanks and pray
To the one, to the one

The fog comes on little cat feet.

It sits looking over harbor and city
on silent haunches and then moves on.

.....grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
the courage to change the things I can;
and the wisdom to know the difference.

We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone-we find it with another.”
