Hello Friends and Happy Sunday

There’s something special about going to a Church Service on a Sunday morning after a sad Saturday night.  The lifting up of prayers in the sanctuary and bonding brightens your day and provides clarity.

I thank God for being blessed and highly favored and wish the same for you,

MAY PEACE AND BLESSINGS BE UPON YOU MY BLOGGY FRIENDS!

Give Me My Flowers While I’m Living 

(click to listen)

In this world today while we’re living
Some folks say the worst of us they can
But when we are dead and in our caskets
They always slip some lilies in our hand

    Won’t you give me my flowers while I’m living
And let me enjoy them while I can
Pleae don’t wait till I’m ready to be buried
And then slip some lilies in my hand

In this world is where we need our flowers
A kind word to help us get along
If you can’t give me flowers while I’m living
Then please don’t throw them when I’m gone

Version:

Happy Birthday Gloria

Forever In My Heart

I know that I’m not the only one who has lost someone far too young.
  No matter how much time goes by, she will always be Unsung.

I often wonder how it would be if I could see her just one more time.
To see her face, feel her warm embrace or hear her laugh out loud.

God knows my heart breaks and just how long it takes to heal.

I love her more than anyone else no matter how it feels.

I don’t watch the videos to see her laugh and smile,

It’s much too much to handle and all I do is cry.

Today she would have been 50, but 29 was all she got, I miss and love you sweet Gloria, forever in my heart

Rest In Heaven, Gloria Cross, Jr.

I love you lil sis

Have you ever listened to the words in the song, These Three Words by Stevie Wonder?

After my sister died the words in this song became more meaningful, and it was played during my grandmother’s Memorial Service.  When they were alive we never left each other or ended a conversation without a saying these three words – I LOVE YOU.

I-Love-You-88

We have an elderly neighbor who has been a widow for over 20 years, she no longer drives so each morning she is standing in her garage waiting for her ride, it’s usually her daughter.  I leave for work, normally late and always in a hurry so when I see her I just wave quickly and continue driving.  This morning looking down the street I could see her standing in her garage waiting for her ride, and once again I am running late this time by more than 20 minutes.  As I drove closer for some strange reason I decided to slow down, stop and ask her how she was feeling.  Watching her slowly walk down the driveway there was such sadness in her eyes, I immediately got out of the car to greet her.

Her only child, her one daughter went to sleep and never woke up…she wasn’t ill…no medical issues…in her 50’s…just went to sleep and never woke up.  Tears streaming down both our faces, hugging tightly, she whispered in my ear, “I just wish I was there to tell her I Love You”

I pray never to know the pain of losing a child but the loss of any loved one leaves a hole in your heart…pick up the phone today and say These Three Words.

love you

Hello Friends and Happy Valentines Day 2013!
I’m sending you a virtual rose, a loving heart and a chocolate kiss!

I don’t spend a lot of money for Valentine’s Day, and every year my men know to only expect a small box of chocolates and a card at their table setting.  They reciprocate but include a dozen red roses, and when the boys were younger the card would be homemade and I have even kept a few – somewhere.

Everyday I kiss and tell my hubby and sons that I love them and today will be no different, but I do like the significance of this holiday and enjoy wearing red (and eating candy).  However, this morning I had a difficult time deciding on my outfit, first changing my skirt and then the shoes and scarves.

Which scarf and shoes do you like better?

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

It’s the day before Valentine’s Day, do you have anything special planned…will Cupid be shooting any arrows your way?  I’ve never been big on V-Day and prefer to get my candy the day after when it’s half price – lol  Hubby and I may go out to dinner Friday night and I bought my sons a card and some candy from Dollar Tree, otherwise nothing special.  I guess when you are single and dating, Valentine’s Day is more of a Holiday, but I tell my men everyday that I love them and the 14th of February will be no different.

 I am still wearing red in honor of “America Goes Red for Women” month and will wear a wee bit more tomorrow.

Image

We are expecting snow but not until this evening so I decided to wear my grey, suede booties to pick up the color in the shirt.

Image

These Bamboo faux fur trimmed booties were purchased a few years ago from Burlington Coat Factory and despite their “ugliness”, they are quite comfortable.

I must admit that I am looking forward to eating a least a piece of chocolate tomorrow!
