Just thinking of you today wondering what kinds of activities you are doing in heaven? I hope and expect you are having a wonderful time! I am sure that you are missing me so I wanted you to know I think of you every day, but I guess you knew that already.

I love you Mom,

"Been missing Mom today especially. And then I saw this, a gift from her and God I think. Today is my Mom's 77th birthday. She moved to heaven two weeks ago today It has been a quiet day so far, just thinking about how precious and sweet and beautiful she is, and how she always blessed everyone with kind encouraging words. She had some tough days the last two years since her watershed stroke. She bore it all with dignity and grace, never complaining. I believe she just wanted to spend a little extra time with us before moving on. Thank you for staying here with us for awhile. I treasure the extra moments I had with you, and I will see you soon! I love you Mom!

As I Sit in Heaven
And watch you everyday
I try to let you know with signs
I never went away
I hear you when you're laughing
And watch you as you sleep
I even place my arms around you
To calm you as you weep
I see you wish the days away
Begging to have me home
So I try to send you signs
So you know you are not alone
Don't feel guilty that you have
Life that was denied to me
Heaven is truly beautiful
Just you wait and see
So live your life, laugh again
Enjoy yourself, be free
Then I know with every breath you take
You'll be taking one for me...SHARE"
