Today We Remember. . .

 “You can shed tears that she is gone,

or you can smile becasue she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.
Your heart can be empty becasue you can’t see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday.
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
you can remember her only that she is gone
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she’d want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”-David Harkins

    You know that I have been praying for you all day and hope you can feel my love and hugs (which you could if you were living here:)) Beautiful poem that says it all. Remember the good things. Put the bad behind. Cherish her, she was your mother and loved you. She did the best she knew how. Sometimes we just can fix everything but have to give it GOD.

    Ate lunch with two adorable children and their gran at Chick Filet. CC saw me go thru drive through Char came out. Will let them tell you. What I needed today.:)
    Love youReplyCancel
