WOW WHAT A GODDESS WEDNESDAY –
(enjoy learning about a goddess!)
Our Barbie was the sweetest woman. She used to be my step mother in law. And I had the privelege of carrying her train all around the church when she married while hearing a beautiful rendition of Ava Maria. It always makes me cry. And today I cried as well because our sweet Barb is gone.
She battle hep C so hard for the past 10 years. She had 3 kids, a bunch of grandkids, a spoiled puppy dog, and a well-trained husband – Don! They spent many an hour together laughing and enjoying life.
Barb loved flowers and angels. Years ago I bought them a cute little birdie couple for the garden. The sign said Old Crow and Cute Chick and from that point on, I have always lovingly called them by this name.
I came upon this poem and wanted to share it on this day of rememberance:
“You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left.
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she’d want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.” – David Harkins
I’ll miss you…
