"Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost loved ones pour through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy."

Little Princess?

Today we went to a ballet of Cinderella. It was the first time going to a ballet for both of us. It was beautiful. Adding to it's beauty were about a hundred little girls in the audience all dressed up in there prettiest dresses with curls in their hair and crowns on their heads. Some were even wearing princess costumes. It was daddy-daughter night and the daddy-daughter couples looked their best for their special evening out together. We couldn't help but think of you, Olivia, and wonder if you'd be a little princess or a tomboy. Of course we think of you as a pretty little princess angel, but that very well may not be the case. We hope you dropped in on us tonight and heard us talking about you during intermission. We wonder if you'd've let Mommy take you to ballet classes or if you'd've let Daddy take you to theater classes, or if you'd rather play basketball and softball. You were in our thoughts tonight, and we hope you know how much you're loved.

The First Time We Saw You

The first time we saw you was a year ago today. You were so tiny on that ultrasound screen. It was love at first sight. You waved at us and our eyes teared. It was finally happening to our family. No, we didn't have to wait very long, only nine months, but it seemed like forever. But no more. There you were - happy and healthy, and saying hello. I wonder if you knew then that you would be here for only a short time. No matter. Today you are once again happy and healthy, and though we can't see you, we know you're still waving at us.

An Angel's Kiss

We go through life so often
Not stopping to enjoy the day,
And we take each one for granted
As we travel on our way.

We never stop to measure
Anything we just might miss,
But if the wind should blow by softly
You'll feel an angel's kiss.

A kiss that is sent from heaven;
A kiss from up above;
A kiss that is very special
From someone that you love.

For in your pain and sorrow
An angel's kiss will help you through.
This kiss is very private,
For it is meant for only you.

So when your hearts are heavy,
And filled with tears and pain,
And no one can console you
Remember once again

About the one you grieve for
Because you sadly miss
And the gentle breeze you took for granted
Was just an angel's kiss.

-Peggy Bouse
