Treasured Finds& Blessings of Mums.
Recently at the op shop I found some books.I love Helen Styner Rice and was blessed to find 3 of her books,one I will give to my friend Melissa as she loves her work also and it is one I already have. Another 2 I found were a very old Little women and The Christmas Story.
Bob and I are so blessed to still have our Mums, mine lives with us and his Mum is over 8 hours away so we only get to see her a couple of times a year,but we chat every Sunday by phone..Both will be turning 90 at the end of the year.
WHEN I COME TO THE END OF THE ROAD
AND THE SUN HAS SET FOR ME
I WANT NO RITES IN A GLOOM FILLED ROOM
WHY CRY FOR A SOUL SET FREE.
MISS ME A LITTLE BUT NOT TOO LONG
AND NOT WITH YOUR HEAD BOWED LOW
REMEMBER THE LOVE THAT WE ONCE SHARED
MISS ME -BUT LET ME GO
FOR THIS IS THE JOURNEY WE ALL MUST TAKE
AND EACH MUST GO ALONE
IT'S ALL PART OF THE MASTERS PLAN
A STEP ON THE ROAD TO HOME
WHEN YOU ARE LONELY AND SICK OF HEART
GO TO THE FRIENDS WE KNOW
AND BURY YOUR SORROW IN DOING GOOD DEED
MISS ME -BUT LET ME GO.
I wonder did anyone see this written, find the other notes in the book,the special newspaper cuttings ,or did they merely toss it aside when the time came for clearing out.Am I just too sentimental ? as I could never have parted with this if it had been my Mums. I often see my Mum sitting in her favourite chair with a little book jotting things down, I have not a clue as to what Mum writes but one day I will read them and I will miss her terribley but I will remember to let her go.
Have a blessed new start to the week. Carole
