come sit next to me...

chemo did not work... our doctor told us...

she said she had a dream. she said she dreamt my father, her husband, who passed away 14 years ago was sitting on a bench. he smiled at her and said... "come sit next to me"

i want to believe that she is going on a journey soon, like many journeys i have made in the past... saying good bye to my family and friends, but knowing my heart is full of excitement for what awaits me. i want to be cheerful for her journey, though it is hard to say good bye, my heart full of love and peace for happiness that awaits her...

everyday i see her smile and laugh though everyday i can sense her breath getting weaker. everyday i hold her hands and sit on her hospital bed knowing there aren't many of these left for us... i am still her baby boy...

Larry, you and your mom are in my prayers.....

From Randy Travis "angels"
Are you telling me that you've never seen an angel?
Never felt the presence of one standing by?
No robe of white
No halo in site
Well you missed the most obvious thing
Man, are you blind?
Just look in your mothers eyes

And then I said who went through the pain
And smiled through the tears on the day of your birth?
She counted your fingers and toes and thank god you were whole
Son you outta know who loved you first, that's right
And who always came running everytime you cried out
And how many more things have you forgotten about
And who tried their best to teach you wrong from right
And how many nights did she leave on the light
While she waited and prayed that you came in
And who'd be there for you right up to the end
Think about it tonight

Are you telling me that you've never seen an angel?
Never felt the presence of one standing by?
No robe of white
No halo in site
Well you missed the most obvious thing
Aww Man, are you blind?
Just look in your mothers eyes

Aww Man, are you blind?
Just look in your mothers eyes
That's right

I hope you don't think I've forgotten you Larry, I just am speechless and saddened and unsure of what to say that may be of comfort. You and your family are in my prayers.
