You Can Shed Tears...

This is a poem that someone included in a card to our family:


You can shed tears that he is gone,
Or you can smile because he has lived

You can close your eyes and pray that he’ll come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all he’s left.

Your heart can be empty because you can’t see him,
Or you can be full of the love you shared.

You can turn back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember him and only that he’s gone,
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.

You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what he’d want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

That was a nice poem. Of course it made me cry. It was really inspiring. The kids look so cute. Everyone is getting so big. We love and miss you.

There's a new option when you go to layouts that is especially for adding blogs. It gives you the option of posting when they update.
