Love you, Brad and Pam

This weekend, I’m in South Carolina with my dad and sister’s family for the marriage of my niece, Pam and Jeremy. 

It was a 19-hour drive from Texas, but it was worth it to be with my two favorite people in the world. 

My niece, Pam and nephew, Brad. I love them more than words can express. They have grown up to be caring and living people. They make me proud to be their Aunt.

Slow Dance

Saw this and wanted to share it  

Make it a great day. 

Slow Dance 

This is a poem written by a teenager with cancer. She wants to see how many people get her poem. It is quite a poem, please pass it on. 

This poem was written by a terminally ill young girl in a New York Hospital.

It was sent by a medical doctor Make sure to read what is in the closing statement AFTER THE POEM.

SLOW DANCE

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?

 Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day on the fly?

When you ask, “How are you?”

Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,

with the next hundred chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short
The music won’t last.

Ever told your child, 

We’ll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste,

Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die 

Cause you never had time 

To call and say,’Hi’

You’d better slow down.

Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.

The music won’t last..

When you run so fast to get somewhere,

You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,

It is like an unopened gift….

Thrown away.

Life is not a race.

Do take it slower

Hear the music

Before the song is over.

FORWARDED E-MAILS ARE TRACKED TO OBTAIN THE TOTAL COUNT.

Dear All: 

PLEASE pass this mail on to everyone you know – even to those you don’t know!

It is the request of a special girl, who will soon leave this world due to cancer.

This young girl has 6 months left to live, and as her dying wish, she wanted to send a letter telling everyone to live their life to the fullest, since she never will. 

She’ll never make it to prom, graduate from high school, or get married and have a family of her own.

By you sending this to as many people as possible, you can give her and her family a little hope, because with every name that this is sent to, the American Cancer Society will donate 3 cents per name to her treatment and recovery plan. One guy sent this to 500 people! So I know that we can at least send it to 5 or 6.

 It’s not even your money, just your time! Please read n forward …

Well, I have this 50 Things I’ve Never Done List and having a tambourine was in that list. So, with the gift card from my sister, Cynthia  and brother-in-law, Dan, I got one. I have ALWAYS wanted a tambourine. Watch out the late, great Davey Jones, I want to be like you were playing the tambourine.

I cannot wait till I get it!
