Dear Al, You Would Have Been so Very Proud...So Very Proud...(Music, Photos, Thoughts, Tears, Thankfulness)

I posted this most beautiful music composition I've recently discovered, it invokes so many feelings, thoughts...memories.   Please enjoy while reading and browsing...

Al, you would have been so proud, so very proud.  She looked lovely.  Could you see?  I think you can sometimes because I can feel it (Hebrews 12:1).  

 Remember how you would hold baby Michelle over your shoulder, singing with her little baby noises, Ahh, Ahh, Ahh and you would sing with her comforting her...You would walk tall and strong, a peaceful cadence with baby Michelle, your sweet grandbaby you treated as your own.  She was, she was because you were like a real dad.  A real dad.  A real grandpa.

I remember craving time to spend with you, Al.  I wanted to sit and and sit with you...It was very definite, and then I found out why...For you passed suddenly on to the other side with God soon after baby Michelle's first birthday.  We miss you so, Al.  So.  Very.  Much.

Do you know that baby Michelle would run up to silver haired men at the grocery store putting her little arms around their legs?  Thinking it was you?  It broke my heart.  It even broke our pediatrician's heart when I shared with him...It did.  I saw my pediatrician tear up too as he slowly backed out of the room.

You would hold Lea and Marianna's little hands and take them to the corner grocery in the inner city for treats... Little Marianna would later say in her five year old sweet little voice to another child at a birthday party, He was my best friend...

You should see Baby Becca too, Al.  She has light hair and grey-blue eyes...much like yours.  She's an artist like you, Al.  I wish she could have known you.

There are lots of thoughts whirring around, many things in the background.

And may I say that I am very blessed, I have the Gift of precious daughters, son-in-love and a wonderful husband who is a spiritual leader and protector.

Do you see her?  Do you see little Lea and Marianna?  Baby Becca?  Do you see them, Al?

Do you know, Al, that the young man Michelle married is strong, gentle, and kind like you?  You should see their new little home, it's lovely...

So many things to be thankful for...

I hope you enjoyed the photos and music, thanks for visiting with me this autumn eve...Jem found this special music on spotify on the Christian instrumental or either the Sunday genre.  Enjoy and be blessed.

This evening Jem and I, hand in hand took a walk through the woods, I wearing my plaid rubber boots, cotton skirt, old linen jacket, hair thrown up...I saw a mommy cow with her baby calf in the woods...So very precious, soooo very precious.   

Good Evening, Loves,   ~amelia
