My Wish


I hope that the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
And each road leads you where you want to go,
And if you’re faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
I hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
And if one door opens to another door closed,
I hope you keep on walkin’ till you find the window,
If it’s cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile
I hope you never look back, but ya never forget,
All the ones who love you, in the place you left,
I hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
And you help somebody every chance you get,
Oh, you find God’s grace, in every mistake,
And you always give more than you take.
But more than anything, yeah, and more than anything,
My wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
Your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
You never need to carry more than you can hold,
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to,
I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
Yeah, this, is my wish.

Happy 18th Birthday little sister!

I can’t seem to hold back the tears today.

Tears because I  miss you tremendously and am heart-broken that I can not be with you today.

You know that I would be if I could, and you know that I love you with all my heart whether we are near or apart.

But most of all, tears because my baby sister is all grown up! And what a amazing woman you have become.

Beautiful. intelligent. Funny. Intuitive. Talented. Thoughtful.

I am so proud of you!

God has an amazing plan for your life, trust and believe in that always.

Remember that you can not always change your circumstances but you can change the way you perceive them and no one can ever take that away from you.

Live your life in love, compassion, humility, forgiveness, thankfulness, hope and most of all faith.

I wish you all things bright and beautiful today and forever

I’m here for you always.

Best Sisters forever, Baby!



Second Chance

My eyes are open wide

By the way I made it through the day

I watch the world outside

By the way I’m leaving out today

Tell my Mother, tell my Father I’ve done the best I can

To make them realize this is my life, I hope they understand

I’m not angry, I’m just saying

Sometimes goodbye is a second chance

Please don’t cry one tear for me

I’m not afraid of what I have to say

This is my one and only voice

So listen close, it’s only for today

This is my chance…

Sometimes goodbye is a second chance


A year ago today I left the only home I had ever known.

Tears strew down my cheeks reminiscing a life of memories.

Leaving behind family and dear friends I took a chance.

I had no idea what lay ahead.

All I truly had was faith that God would direct my path

hope for a new beginning

and the love of my boys.

Some days are harder than others being so far away from home but every day gets a little easier.

That is because I have come to realize that home is where your heart is.

Home knows no boundaries.

It isn’t limited to one side of a state line or another.

It is the memories and the love that connects you to people and places wherever you are.

I may not physically be home but home will always and forever be with me in my heart.

Miss A Thing

I could stay awake just to hear you breathing

Watch you smile while you are sleeping

Far away and dreaming


I could spend my life in this sweet surrender

I could stay lost in this moment forever

Well, every moment spent with you

Is a moment I treasure


I don’t wanna close my eyes

I don’t wanna fall asleep

‘Cause I’d miss you

And I don’t want to miss a thing


‘Cause when I dream of you

The sweetest dream will never do

I’d still miss you

And I don’t want to miss a thing


Lying close to you

Feeling your heart beating

And I’m wondering what you’re dreaming

Wondering if it’s me you’re seeing


Then I kiss your eyes and thank God that we’re together

And I just want to stay with you

In this moment forever


And ever


I don’t want to miss one smile

I don’t want to miss one kiss

Well. I just want to be with you

Right here with you, just like this


I just want to hold you close

Feel your heart so close to mine

And stay here in this moment for all the rest of time

 (Aerosmith- Miss A Thing)

The Memories Remain

How the time passes away

All the trouble that we gave

Has it all gone to waste?

All the promises we made

One by one they vanish just the same


Of all the things I still remember

Summer’s never looked the same

The years go by and time just seems to fly

But the memories remain


In the middle of September we’d still play out in the rain

Nothing to lose but everything to gain

Reflecting now on how things could’ve been

It was worth it in the end


Now it all seems so clear

There’s nothing left to fear

So we made our way by finding what was real

Now the days are so long that summer is moving on

We reach for something that’s already gone


We had to leave this town

But we never knew when

And we never knew how


Of all the things I still remember

Summer’s never looked the same

The years go by and time just seems to fly

But the memories remain
