I am a Sweetheart to One and a Mommy to Four Loveable Babes, one of which is smiling down on us from Heaven. I am learning to dance in the rain. Come with me on my journey as I make the most out of Life's mud puddles.

Put on your rain boots. Great adventure lies ahead.

Merry Christmas from Heaven

Two of my angels stopped by today. They were with me within hours of discovering Bennett and did many things behind the scenes to keep my family afloat while we navigated the treacherous road of grief.

One of my Angels - an Angel Mother herself - shared this poem with me. She said that she reads it every Holiday Season to remind her how much her son is still involved in their lives.


I still hear the songs
I still see the lights
I still feel your love
on cold wintry nights.

I still share your hopes
and all your cares
I'll even remind you
to please say all your prayers.

I just want to tell you
you still make me proud
You stand head and shoulders
above all the crowd.

Keep trying each moment
to stay in His grace
I came here before you
to help set your place.

You don't have to be
perfect all the time
He forgives you the slip
if you continue to climb.

To my family and friends
please be thankful today
I'm still close beside you
in a new special way.

I love you all dearly
now don't shed a tear
cause I'm spending my
Christmas with Jesus this year.

Merry Christmas, Sweet Bennett. Enjoy your White Christmas in Heaven. xoxoxoxo
