Those Eyes!

Missing them and YOU a whole lot tonight...

Saturday, February 18, 2012


Today I attended your sweet friend Caleb's funeral.  It was tender, hard, and so, so beautiful.  It brought back a lot of memories from almost two years ago...ones that felt so raw all over again.  But I am so grateful to have known this little boy, to have felt his strong spirit and to have had a small part in his HUGE life.  
I love you Caleb Joseph Moody.

A Gift From My Dad


When I woke I was crying and I lay awake trying  
To remember if I’d seen him again  
My dreams are so fleeting but the way my heart is beating     
I am sure that in my arms I held Ben  

I did see him.  I did hold him. 

In my dreams I can kiss him, when awake how I miss him  
And I hunger so I can feel that touch  
Just saying his sweet name ignites in my heart such a flame   
It consumes me that I love him so much  

I did see him.  I did hold him. 

Dreams, like a meeting place, are memories that I embrace
From moments that were once reality
I linger there with a desire that time will not expire
Because waking makes parting misery.   

I did see him.  I did hold him.

He is waiting in my dreams
