Grown Up

Easter weekend. I am reminded once again that I no longer have "babies".
I remember them squealing with delight searching for eggs filled with "treasure" and our delight at watching them.
Now the only squeals we hear are when they achieve a new level in their video games or accomplish a new skateboard trick.
It is such a bittersweet journey that of parenting - we want them to grow, flourish and leave the nest confident young people.
But there is still that yearning for those sleepless nights, squeals of delight and daily requirement of hugs.
They are all grown up.

Everyone Needs An Angel

There are times in our lives
When we feel incomplete
Or we don't understand
And we long and we ache
When life is too much
Full of sadness and pain
And it's just at this moment
When an Angel appears
Everyone Needs An Angel
