A friend of mine who lost her husband to LC sent this to me today in an e-mail. I really liked it and thought I would share,


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 has 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 your 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.

Thank you for sharing


I read this one when the mood gets down.

I Believe

I have to believe that you still exist....somewhere

That you still watch me....sometimes

That you still love me....somehow

I have to believe that life has meaning....somehow

That I am useful....sometimes

That I make a small difference....somewhere

I believe I have to stay here for....sometime

That all this teaches me....something

So I can meet you again....somewhere

I love the posts by Katie and Jackie. I am printing this out, laminating it and keeping it in my desk drawer. When I get down, this is something I can read and know that this is the way things must be.
