Happy Monday


Happy Monday

May your day begin and end on a happy note♪


Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity. -Henry Van Dyke

    "When I started counting my blessings,
    my whole life turned around. - Willie Nelson-...

    I rejoice in every beautiful moment I shared with my darling Mother.
    I miss you Mom more than any words can ever say.

“When angels visit us,
we do not hear the rustle of wings,
nor feel the feathery touch of the breast of a dove;
but we know their presence
by the love they create in our hearts.” ~Mary Baker Eddy

"I miss you when something really good happens, because you're the one I want to share it with. I miss you when something is troubling me, because you're the one who understands me so well. I miss you when I laugh and cry, because I know that you are the one that makes my laughter grow, and my tears disappear. I miss you all the time, but I miss you the most when I lay awake at night, and think of all the wonderful times that we spent with each other for those were some of the best and most memorable times of my life."

Author of I miss you quote unknown to me but it sums up how I feel about missing my Mom so very much indeed.

Today is 7 years that my beloved Mom has been in Heaven

How I miss you my darling one.

Treasured and adored in Heaven as you were on Earth

I love you more than any words can ever say

To my Beloved Mother August 12, 2007 Written for her on her first year in Heaven by me
(One Year in Heaven)
I hope your days in Heaven Mom
Are of the happiest kind
A mother like you here on Earth
Is rare and hard to find
Each day I celebrate you
And all the joys we've shared
I always knew how much I was loved
And how very much you cared
We are not the same without you
And our hearts are always blue
And there is never a moment
That we are not missing you
But we carry on with grace and pride
The way you taught us to
I send my love to Heaven Mom and offer you a prayer
God wrapped you in His tender arms and now you're in His care.
So loving, so loved
We love you and miss you.
Love Jeanne and Family

For my Beloved Mother

and a favorite piece of mine
called The Next Place

The Next Place
By Warren Hanson

The next place that I go
Will be as peaceful and familiar
As a sleepy summer Sunday
And a sweet, untroubled mind.
And yet . . .
It won't be anything like any place I've ever been. . .
Or seen. . . or even dreamed of
In the place I leave behind.
I won't know where I'm going,
And I won't know where I've been
As I tumble through the always
And look back toward the when.
I'll glide beyond the rainbows.
I'll drift above the sky.
I'll fly into the wonder, without ever wondering why.
I won't remember getting there.
Somehow I'll just arrive.
But I'll know that I belong there
And will feel much more alive
Than I have ever felt before.
I will be absolutely free of the things that I held onto
That were holding onto me.
The next place that I go
Will be so quiet and so still
That the whispered song of sweet belonging will rise up to fill
The listening sky with joyful silence,
And with unheard harmonies
Of music made by no one playing,
Like a hush upon breeze.
There will be no room for darkness in that place of living light,
Where an ever-dawning morning pushes back the dying night.
The very air will fill with brilliance, as the brightly shining sun
And the moon and half a million stars are married into one.
The next place that I go Won't really be a place at all.
There won't be any seasons --
Winter, summer, spring or fall --
Nor a Monday, Nor a Friday,
Nor December, Nor July.
And the seconds will be standing still. . .
While hours hurry by.
I will not be a boy or girl,
A woman or man.
I'll simply be just, simply, me.
No worse or better than.
My skin will not be dark or light.
I won't be fat or tall.
The body I once lived in
Won't be part of me at all.
I will finally be perfect.
I will be without a flaw.
I will never make one more mistake,
Or break the smallest law.
And the me that was impatient,
Or was angry, or unkind,
Will simply be a memory.
The me I left behind.
I will travel empty-handed.
There is not a single thing
I have collected in my life
That I would ever want to bring Except. . .
The love of those who loved me,
And the warmth of those who cared.
The happiness and memories
And magic that we shared.
Though I will know the joy of solitude. . .
I'll never be alone. I'll be embraced
By all the family and friends I've ever known.
Although I might not see their faces,
All our hearts will beat as one,
And the circle of our spirits
Will shine brighter than the sun.
I will cherish all the friendship I was fortunate to find,
All love and all the laughter in the place I leave behind.
All these good things will go with me.
They will make my spirit glow.
And that light will shine forever In the next place that I go.

"The purpose of our lives is to give birth
to the best which is within us
~Marianne Williamson~
