Her Journey Has Just Begun


Her journey has ended here on earth
Gone too soon
We miss her

But she is still with us
She is in the scent of the flowers
She lovingly grew
She is in the face of her grandchildren
Whom she loved so very much
Her spirit is everywhere
She is in that favorite song
That she sang along with on the radio
And she is in the stories she told
Of her childhood, of a different time and place
She is in the hearts of those she loved
And forever will be
She is in the old photographs
Pasted in the family albums
And in the worn and tattered quilts
Stitched with her own two hands
She is in that favorite recipe
That everyone always asked for
And she is in the memories
Of friends and relatives who smile
And remember how special she was
She is in the joy and the laughter
Of the family she called her own
Yes, her spirit is all around
Her journey has just begun
(In memory of my sister-in-law who passed away recently after a brief battle with cancer)

I love that. I hope some day when I am gone, that I will leave such memories for everyone to remember me by.

Pictures

Growing up in my era we didn't take a lot of pictures. Of course, there were the school pictures, which I dreaded, and Mom rarely bought...
