Today is my Mom’s birthday, and I am feeling sad. But, it’s OK. Sadness will move on to sweet memories…and life will go on. There will be times to celebrate, and more times to mourn. Life will continue to change. There will be family times that will bring about happy tears, and sad tears as well. But, through it all…we will lift our voices to praise Him who joined us together as a family. We have fully lived our times together, and will continue to do so. Even as we are apart, there is the blessed hope that our Father promises. For we shall be together again…but, until then…we will celebrate life!

I wrote the following poem the day after Mom died.


The lazy Sunday afternoon
With it?
