A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

Morning Memories by Balisha





Morning Memories by Balisha


I woke up early morning...all in my comfy bed..
Memories were drifting through my drowsy head.
A little bundle all in blue was in my arms so sweet..
A baby boy to care for and love beyond belief.
He was so small with eyes of blue...just perfect I would say..
We took him home and cared for him..he soon began to play.
The years went by so fast indeed... it was time for school to start..
Kindergarten came so fast....I knew that he'd be smart. 
He cried when left....it broke my heart to leave him there that day..
The teacher said, "He'll be alright once he begins to play."
The years were filled with creatures...snakes, lizards and a rat..
We had so many pets those days.. a dog and then a cat..
It was time for graduation and then the Air Force took our boy..
I wished that he could stay at home...he was my pride and joy.
Children grow in many ways and they start to grow away..
It's what they are supposed to do...a Mom just has no say.
So, years went by, so fast it seems... a job and marriage too..
We get together on holidays and birthdays... quite a few,
I lie in bed this morning and think about the past..
He's sick right now....I'm hoping that he will heal  fast.
So Jesus if you're listening...I have a small request...
I'm handing you my bundle... I know that you know best.
How to make him  healthy..we all could use some rest.
We need him in our family...he's always been such fun..
This battle that he's fighting is one that will be won.
So, in my bed I'm thinking.. of memories of the past...
The future looks much brighter... and Tim will  be well at last.

Balisha, what would we do without
calling on his name.
Thinking of you in a special way...

Beautiful, beautiful poem. It is hard to watch them be ill--even when they are grown because, they are still our babies. I call out for Tim's recovery many times a day. We ALL have our arms around you in a warm hug.
