Loving synchronicity...

I am writing to tell about an incredible event.  Two days ago, I  met an incredible woman that has an angel in heaven.  Her name is Marisol Martinez and her angel's name is Danny. Turns out that my beautiful soul sister Tai Pelli had sent me a video of a fundraiser for Danny, a walk to aid in the Prevention of Suicide.  We have started communicating ever since, and I am so humbled by Marisol's kind gesture of taking your name with her to the walk!  Another friend, Annette, is doing the same.  I am grateful to the both of them for their loving gesture.  I had tears of gratitude when I found out about this!

Losing you has been the most painful thing I've had to face, my child: there were days I didn't know how to make it.  But through the years, I have been blessed with wonderful people in my life, such as these women, who have touched me in such a way that has allowed me to go on.  I thank God and the angels for allowing me to be here and connect with them and others along the way. 

I am also including this information here.  We don't know if there's someone that would read these lines.  Someone might be going through depression and has contemplated suicide.   I want to reach out in every way possible to others, just like Marisol is doing with the community walks.  I believe we can make a difference, my angel.  And we will.

Precious Child


In my dreams, you are alive and well
Precious child, precious child
In my mind, I see you clear as a bell
Precious child, precious child
In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart, there is hope
'Cause you are with me still

In my heart, you live on
Always there never gone
Precious child, you left too soon
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

In my plans, I was the first to leave
Precious child, precious child
But in this world, I was left here to grieve
Precious child, my precious child

In my soul, there is a hole
That can never be filled
But in my heart there is hope
And you are with me still

In my heart you live on
Always there, never gone
Precious child, you left too soon,
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

God knows I want to hold you,
See you, touch you
And maybe there's a heaven
And someday I will again
Please know you are not forgotten until then

In my heart you live on
Always there never gone
Precious child, you left too soon
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

Mother's Day in Heaven

Happy Mother's Day
to my angel Getzia
05/08/83 - 07/17/05

A Mother's Love - a poem for my daughter

 My angel Getzia and her baby Jayleanna

A Mother's love is something
that no on can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain,
It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away . . .
It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking . . .
It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems . . .
It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation . . .
A many-splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God's tender guiding hand.

Happy Birthday in Heaven, My Child

On May 8, 2012 you are turning 28 years old.  In heaven, where you have been residing since July, 2005. It has not been easy living without you; I have just learned to.  And a learning process it has been.  At times, the memories all come rushing back, and the pain becomes unbearable, but you are always in my thoughts and in my heart.  And I know the pain you endured and made you take your life are all gone.  And you are at rest now: it is us who need to learn to cope and give each other support while we deal with our grief.  And I also know that you are here with us; you have made it known. You will forever be a part of me, my child, and I will forever love you.  And I am grateful to have a part of you growing in your daughter, Jayleanna.  She is so much you, that is incredible!

Until we meet again, Happy Birthday, my sweet angel child!

Life Goes On Without You

The sun still sets
And the wind still blows.
How greatly I miss you,
Nobody knows.

The seasons change,
And leaves still fall.
The pain from missing you
They can't grasp at all.

The moon still rises,
And stars shine bright.
The way that you left me
Just wasn't right.

I ache to see your smiling face,
Hold you again in my arms.
Until that cherished time arrives,
I'll pretend you're the sun that warms.

To My Granddaughter… Grandma’s Pearls of Wisdom


I've traveled paths you've yet to walk
Learned lessons old and new
And now this wisdom of my life
I'm blessed to share with you
Let kindness spread like sunshine
Embrace those who are sad
Respect their dignity, give them joy
And leave them feeling glad
Forgive those who might hurt you
And though you have your pride
Listen closely to their viewpoint
Try to see the other side
Walk softly when you're angry
Try not to take offense
Invoke your sense of humor
Laughter's power is immense!
Express what you are feeling
Your beliefs you should uphold
Don't shy away from what is right
Be courageous and be bold
Keep hope right in your pocket
It will guide you day by day
Take it out when it is needed
When it's near, you'll find a way
Remember friends and family
Of which you are a precious part
Love deeply and love truly
Give freely from your heart
 The world is far from perfect
There’s conflict and there’s strife
But you still can make a difference
By how you live your life
And so I’m very blessed to know
The wonders you will do
Because you are my granddaughter
And I believe in you

The day that changed my life

My Life changed, the very moment I found out
That you had passed away.
I couldn't stop it; there was nothing I could say.
You've touched my life so deeply to a point you will never know,
I try to think about you when I am feeling down and low.
Sometimes when my day gets hard
will think about your beautiful smile
and if I listen hard enough I will hear your voice after a while.
It's you who give me a reason to go on with my day,
and now if I want to see you I'll bow my head and pray.
I catch myself looking for you still,
In the halls and at your front door,
but when I call your name there is no reply any more!
I never thought a day would come where we would be apart,
God has you in his keeping, we have you in our hearts.
Life will go on, but never will be the same,
your beautiful smile is gone, but it will always remain.
You're our angel from up above.
You'll always be missed, but most importantly... loved. 
 .......................................................With love, Mommy
❤️ ❤️ ❤️
