October is breast cancer awareness month.
Early detection is the key!
Do regular breast self-exams.
Have annual mammograms if you are a woman over the age of 40.
Encourage those women you love to do the same.
It has been 29 years since I lost my mommy!
In my eyes you will
always be my mommy....
and I will forever be 5!
Mommy went to Heaven, but I need her here today,
My tummy hurts and I fell down, I need her right away.
Operator can you tell me how to find her in this book?
Is heaven in the yellow part, I don't know where to look.
I think my daddy needs her too, at night I hear him cry.
I hear him call her name sometimes, but I really don't know why.
Maybe if I call her, she will hurry home to me.
Is Heaven very far away, is it across the sea?
She's been gone a long, long time she needs to come home now!
I really need to reach her, but I simply don't know how.
Help me find the number please, is it listed under "Heaven"?
I can't read these big big words, I am only seven.
I'm sorry operator, I didn't mean to make you cry,
Is your tummy hurting too, or is there something in your eye?
If I call my church maybe they will know.
Mommy said when we need help that's where we should go.
I found the number to my church tacked up on the wall.
Thank you operator, I'll give them a call.
I knew I'd miss you.
When you care about someone
as much as I do about you,
Being apart is a hard thing to get used to.
I thought I'd handle it just fine...
And that I'd be happy just to keep you
on my mind.
But it isn't always that easy...
Sometimes the one thing that
would please me the most...
is simply seeing you.
I knew that I would miss you.
I just didn't know
I'd miss you as much as I do.
as a friend so elloquently put it..
She is with you...in every breath you take...
in every footstep, down every path that you chose,
she is with you everytime you close your eyes to sleep,
She peers into your dreams every night,
making most of them a little more pleasant,
She watches over you wherever, whenever, whatever...
you must feel her deep in your heart...
as long as she's not forgotten...
She will be with you for eternity...
You will always and forever be her little girl!
