I am taking this time to reflect on my past to change my present and give me hope for the future.

I started this journey in 2001 at 190. I am reaching my goal of health and happiness.

I helped my mother go into the light
A place of comfort and no more pain

She saw her husband's outstretched arms
Welcoming her into Heaven's Gate

Sugar was there barking hello's
As well as her mom and dad

I held her lovingly and talked about
All that she was going to see

I didn't cry as I wanted no tears
But sweet words about our life

I told her she was my best friend
And the love of my life

I thanked her for giving me life
And sharing her years with me

She may be gone out of sight
But lives with me still

My heart may ache for a little while
But there she will abide

Remembering With Love
December 9. 2009

A year gone by
Where did it go

The hours slipped by
I miss you so

Your never too far
You're in my heart

I think of you daily
At night I pray

I know you are happy
My prayers answered

Look down from above
Wipe my tears away

I'll look to the heavens
Knowing you're there

Watching, loving, caring
Your first year away


A New Year

A new year has dawned
It holds hopes and dreams

There is comfort in every day
That our best is yet to be

We learn as we go
And take on new roles

We will hold our head high
As we move throughout the days

The months go by quickly
We strive not for perfection

But the knowledge that is gained
From trial and errors

Soon it is Spring
A renewal of birth

We look to the sky
For inspiration anew

Time is our friend
It is on our side

A new year has dawned
How happy am I


My Mirror

When I look into the mirror I see many things depending on the day.

Somedays I see the young girl haunted by her past full of the cruel words her sister brainwashed her with. I see fat and ugly and all the things she said I wouldn't be.

Otherdays, which are more frequent, I see an "old" woman and it makes me laugh.

Yesterday I saw a wife trying her best to help herself and her husband lose weight and become healthy by adopting a new lifestyle.

Today I saw a sad, tearful daughter that has lost her mother through death.

Tomorrow will be left up to me.


Heaven's Heart

I hold a heart in my mind
It is drawn with loving hands

It represents the years gone by
And all the love there is

It is larger than life in my minds eye
With lace all around

It simple says these words
My love will never end


Happy Birthday, Daddy

I remember how happy you were
When we took you back home

The bees, the ticket, the house
And so much more

Those were the days
That filled us with joy

To see the states and stop for postcards
You would laugh at us for doing this

But we would stop at every gas station
And never send a soul

Do you remember the Chinese restaurant
When we took it over

No one was there
but hungry customers and the cook

Once more I donned the role
And served hot coffee to all

What fun we had on your birthdays
Two of the best days of the year


Happy Mother's Day, Mom

Mother's Day comes but once a year
Mine is now celebrated in my heart

I look to Heaven and wish her hello
Each day of the year

She is dear to me now as before
I shed a tear or two

A mother's love is never far
I feel it everywhere I go

When flowers bloom or I see a butterfly near
Mom has sent her hello's

Mom, I miss you and love you still
And I always will

Today is special for me you know
All my days are

I celebrate today with you in mind
Even though you are not here
