Thanksgiving

The holidays can be a lonely time, especially when your family is far away, thanks to all of you who always open their home to us during the holidays. You bring family closer to our kids and we are forever grateful to you for that. Well, I saw this in a blog about two years ago and so I am going to ‘copy’. It is the ABC’s of thanksgiving.

Happy Birthday Mom!

“Nothing can fill the gap when we are away from those we love,
and it would be wrong to try and find anything.
We must simply hold out and win through.
That sounds hard at first,
but at the same time it is agreat consolation,
since leaving the gap unfilled preserves the bond between us.
It is nonsense to day that God fills the gap;
he does not fill it,
but keeps it empty that our communion with another may be kept alive,
even at the cost of pain.”
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Dear Mom,
There is a space in my heart that is always yours. Happy Birthday.

When you lose something,
it’s all that you want back.
You waited patiently.
But it don’t work like that.

When you lose someone,
the first thing that goes through your head,
is if you run fast enough,
you just might catch up.
But it don’t work like that.

You just gotta watch it fly.
Stand there on the side line.
Wanna swallow up your pride.
Know it’s gonna be alright.
Wishing when I close your eyes
With a kiss goodbye…

Well the hardest part,
Yeah it hurts so bad,
is when she spreads her wings,
but it’d be a selfish thing,
to try and hold her back,
but it don’t work like that.

You just gotta watch it fly.
Stand there on the side line.
Wanna swallow up your pride.
Know it’s gonna be alright.
Wishing when i close your eyes
like a kiss goodbye…

When you lose something
It’s all that you want back.

You just gotta watch it fly.
Stand there on the side line
Wanna swallow up your pride,
know it’s gonna be alright,
wishing i could close your eyes,
with a kiss goodbye…

Like a kiss goodbye.
