I wish you could see me in summer
When the fair sounds echo at night
And the sun shines bright all day
When the ocean waves are rolling
And the sand is nice and warm
When the clouds are driven out
And the kids play all day
When the lights are bright at night
And the sounds echo through the land
When the night fades away
And the day comes to stay
And my life is in the palm of my hand
I wish you could see me in summer
All young and wild and free
Roaming around this earth that God
Has given to all of us
Not only me.

2. Self-worth – Seeing your own value is one of the best things you can do for yourself. To fully appreciate your life and be happy, you have to first see your self-worth. Not what others see you as, not what others think of you as, but what you are to yourself. Continue Reading This Post »

“Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.” – Rumi

Death came to my part of the world this week.

I live in Overland Park, Kansas where a hate crime took the lives of three people and changed my part of the world forever.

My younger daughter, Emily, went to school with Reat Underwood, the young man who was killed on Palm Sunday. They sang in the school choir together, performed in this year’s musical, Guys and Dolls together, and along with the other members of the choir, dreamed of performing on larger stages together.
