Occasionally, we are graced with the presence of an earth bound angel.

They are unable to stay with us for long, but while they do, they bring unprecedented joy and happiness to all they touch.

While they are here, we bask in their goodness and marvel at their contribution to the world.

When they leave, we are left with the devastation that comes from losing such a wonderful being, but we must remember.....Earth bound angels are not ours to keep.

They are ours to enjoy, learn from and behold until they return Home.

"There is a sacredness in tears....They are not the mark of weakness, but of power....They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues....They are messengers of overwhelming grief....of deep contrition and of unspeakable love."

If I Knew

If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you fall asleep... I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you walk out the door... I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise... I would video tape each action and word, and play it back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time... I would spare an extra minute or two to stop and say "I love you," instead of assuming that you KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time... I would be there to share your day, and not say we'll have so many more, that I can let just this one slip away.

But, surely there's always tomorrow to make up for an oversight. We always get a second chance to make everything right. There will always be another day to say our "I love you's". And certainly another chance to say "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, I'd like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget, Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, And today may be the last chance you get, to hold your loved one tight..

So if you're waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you'll surely regret the day, That you didn't take the time for an extra, smile, hug, or kiss and you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today, whisper in their ear Tell them how much you love them and that you'll always hold them dear, Take time to say "I'm sorry," "please forgive me," "thank you" or "it's okay"

And if tomorrow never comes, you'll have no regrets about today.
