Life Goes On

LIFE GOES ON

It’s been a year since you’ve been gone. It’s kind of hard but Life Goes On – like lightning bugs in a jar.
I remember that day we stole away, and sat beside a waterfall, and looked up at the stars in the sky.
It reminds me of the days that we would run and play and catch lightning bugs in a jar.
Yes, a year has passed, but I can’t forget how we used to catch lightning bugs in a jar.
Yes, I’m staying strong, and life goes on. But I cannot forget how we used to run and skip and put lightning bugs in a jar.
My, how the year passed by so very quick. But now our children run and skip and put lightning bugs in a jar.

Let Me Lean

Let Me Lean

Let me lean on you Lord, you know I’m not that strong.
Let me lean on you Lord, let me lean.
As the days go by, I know you can hear me cry.
Let me lean on you Lord, let me lean.
I knew there would come a day that I couldn’t make it all the way.
So let me lean on you Lord, let me lean.
When my day gets rough, and I know I’m not that tough.
So let me lean on you Lord, let me lean.
At the end of the day, I can make it the rest of the way.
That’s when I turn and say, thank you Lord – for allowing me to lean.
So, when the road get rough, and you know I’m not that tough,
I just want to thank you Lord, for letting me lean.

Letter From a Soldier

LETTER FROM A SOLDIER

Even though I may be a thousand miles away, that only means the world is getting smaller every single day.

So, this is what I’ll do to show my love for you – I’ll send you a package every day.

It’ll be postmarked USA, and in this package, there will be a letter, saying I miss you every single day, from a soldier a thousand miles away.

Even though I can’t be with you on this Valentine’s Day, just read the letter and listen to what I have to say.

It will say I love you more than words can express, in a very caring way, from a lonely soldier, a thousand miles away.

Looking for Everett Sons

From Patricia Biswanger”

I know this is an extremely long shot, but did anyone happen to know EVERETT SONS? He and his wife OLIVE SHEVLIN SONS lived in Frankford most of their adult lives; they both died in the early 70s. (They were my grandparents.) If you have a parent or grandparent still living who lived in Frankford in the 50s, 60s, or 70s,, can you please ask that person if s/he knew EVERETT SONS or OLIVE SONS? (If so, please message Patricia Biswanger on Facebook.https://www.facebook.com/patricia.biswanger)

Golden Years

GOLDEN YEARS

When you get caught up in your golden years, and life is moving kind of slow, these are some of the things that you should know.
Don’t hit the cruise button – that’s moving too slow – step on the gas, and let It Go.
Because these are the golden years you’ve been working for. To be able to lay down that heavy burden, from 9 to 5.
These are the days you’ve been waiting for.
So, pick up your keys, and hit the road, and don’t let nobody tell you you’re too old. Because these are the golden years you’ve been waiting for.
Now get it together, and hit the Road, and let them know you’re never too old.
Now, with your convertible top down, you can continue to paint the town – Because these are your – GOLDEN YEARS.
