A New Fantastic Point of View

My first thought at first light this morning was Lindsay. I don't know why. Maybe because it's the last day of September and October 10th is once again just around the corner. Here's to you sweet girl, and thanks for waking me up this morning.

When God gave this life abundant,
He never said
how long it would last.
He didn't say either
that we'd ever understand
why someone would go so soon,
leaving us in her past.
So you take those wings girl
and soar like never before
along with my thank you
for the times we had and more.

There's No Place Like Home

Top Ten Reasons for Loving Your Life

You have someone in your life that brings out the best in you, who will forever be at your side and on your side, come what may.

Knowing that you and your family, no matter where they live can be together in just a matter of a few hours.

At the top of your prayer list is “Thank you God for my good health.”

You’re sitting in your seat and the plane takes off and you have to refrain from yelling “Yes!”

You’re on your way to Ireland.

You can think back on the choices you’ve made over the years and are happy where you are in life right now.

You have a friend who will let you talk on forever and told you that your best trait is you are a good listener.

You’re on the second page of your list of goals and dreams for the New Year and you still have three months to go.

When you answer the phone there’s a little voice on the other end saying “I love you Grandma.”

When you walk through your front door you can say
“There’s no place like Home.”
