To Every Thing There Is A Season


A brief candle; both ends burning
An endless mile; a bus wheel turning
A friend to share the lonesome times
A handshake and a sip of wine
So say it loud and let it ring
We are all a part of everything
The future, present and the past
Fly on proud bird
You're free at last.
~Charlie Daniels~

Dear Readers,
We received word that one of my sister-in-laws passed away rather unexpectedly.
Death always reminds us that life is precious and should never be taken for granted.
I will be away for a few days to spend time with family. If I can be so bold to ask each of you to do something for me. It's very simple. I'd like to ask that you tell those you love that you love them, hold them tight and treasure the time you spend with each other.

Nothing bold about that request. It is something that should go unsaid. Time is too short to not let the ones you love, know just exactly how you feel.
Sorry to hear of your family's loss. You are all in my prayers.

it is a good idea carletta because we will regret it forever if we don't take the advantage to love them any moment that we can.
i am sorry for you that you lost your sister in law but surely if she is in heaven, you have not lost her because you know where she is!
god bless you and her family with his peace and comfort...love terry
