~*~ reflecting ~*~

2007 fond memories
watching my son recover his life
now we share a history
lessons learned through love and strife

2008 you've just begun
making lists new goals and dreams
looking forward to battles won
and the bonds still set to free

2009 you lie asleep
distant and still far away
not a worry fret or weep
in God's hands I know you'll stay

Sweet Darlene, you've said it all in three beautiful little verses.

Looking forward to our lunch in 2008....call me. Let's do it soon.

What a great way to look at it.

I've been told the real meaning of joy is the anticipation of the good that is coming. Sounds like you've got it!

I pray this is the year bonds are indeed set free, especially with my oldest! He's in bondage and doesn't even know it. I'm so glad for your son!
