Gage, Ethan, and Ady,
You guys are too young to know the meaning of death! With life comes death. There will be people in your life that you will have to say goodbye to. Wether that person is a girlfriend, boyfriend, spouse, mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, or even a close or distant friend! Just remember, the love you have for them...........the love will always be in your heart! The memories will dwell in your mind forever! Life and death go hand-in-hand.....one can not be separated from the other.
This is one of my favorite movies! There is just a good motto about this movie! Remember kids to choose your quilt wisely! Remember to make sure that it has all of the colors you dream it to have. Make sure all of it's corners are shaped the way you want them shaped! Remember that the quilt will need mending and washing at times! Remember that the quilt will loose some of it's color and flare if not taken care of correctly! Remember that if you give your quilt love, you will get love in return, if you mend it, it will stay strong, if you forget about it, it will soon forget about you! Don't tuck your quilt in a closet or a chest, hold it close to you always .........I'm sure when you get older you will know that I am talking about your life and the life you have chosen with a loved one! Right now, these things seem so far away, but.............You are actually making your quilt at this very moment! I love you Gage, Ethan, and Ady!
This is one of my favorite poems about God and all that he carries us through! You will understand it more when you are older! Just remember, I will be there for you also, through good times and in bad! Always remember to keep your strength and free spirit that God gave you and use it wisely my dear! Yet, remember to calm it when the time comes! I'll be watching you and I'll always be on your side as long as I am Alive!
It's finally raining outside! Remember when you were a small child and one of your favorite things to do was to play in the rain, then slip-n-slide in the mud puddles? Well, that was one of my favorite things to do! As adults, we should all remember to do some of the things we liked doing as a child! So, go outside today and play in the rain, slide into a big mud puddle, ride a bike, play hide-n-seek with your children, play cops and robbers with your kids, watch a good cowboy and indian movie( I bet some of your kids don't know what that is)! It's ok to be a kid for a day and forget about all of that adult stuff! Take the weight of the world off of your shoulder, take the edge off.............feel free, get wet, get muddy, ride that horse with that cowboy!!!!!!!!
Sisters....the one you played and fought with when you were young, the one you grow into a teenager with, the one who knows about all of your flaws and doesn't mind reminding you of them, the one who was there at your wedding and saw you walk down the isle, the one who was there for your son's birth, the one who lives across the street, the one who drinks a couple of beers with you! Yes, that's my sister!
Did you ever wonder how it would be to stay young forever....to be forever 21? Actually, that would be insane! Imagine the hormone rush in the world.......Imagine being 13 again, with acne all over your face and hair growing everywhere....yuck! Imagine 8 again, loosing all of your teeth and gaining those big ones in that little mouth of yours! Imagine being one again, trying to walk for the first time! Imagine being a baby, being cradled in someone's arms...........no matter how old you are, you can still cuddle in someone's arms and think back to being forever 21, 13,8,1, or even a baby! It's fun to imagine!
DON'T FORGET TO SHARE YOUR ICE CREAM LITTLE ONE! I KNOW IT TASTE SOOOOO GOOD, BUT WHENEVER YOU GAIN SOMETHING, YOU SHOULD PAY IT FORWARD! YES, THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A COLD ICE CREAM MELTING IN YOUR HANDS AND MOUTH ON A HOT SUMMERS DAY.......SHARE THAT WITH SOMEONE WHO CAN'T AFFORD THE FINER THINGS IN LIFE!
TO BE FOREVER TWO! TO HAVE THAT WONDER IN YOUR EYES, THE NEED, THE WANT TO EXPLORE ALL THE BIG THINGS AROUND YOU! TO HAVE THAT DRIVE TO STAY AWAKE AS LONG AS YOU CAN, TO HAVE THE URGE TO TOUCH AND TASTE EVERYTHING......STAY TWO IN YOUR HEART FOREVER ADY! TWO IS A WONDERFUL AGE!
