I am a small and precious child,
my dad's been sent to fight...
The only place I'll see his face,
is in my dreams at night.
He will be gone too many days
For my young mind to keep track.
I may be sad, but I am proud.
My daddy's got your back.
I am a caring mother.
My son may go to war...
My mind is filled with worries
that I have never known before
Everyday I try to keep
my thoughts from turning black.
I may be scared, but I am proud.
My son has got your back.
I am a strong and loving wife,
with a husband soon to go.
There are times I'm terrified
in a way most never know.
I bite my lip, and force a smile
as I watch my husband pack...
My heart may break, but I am proud.
My husbands got your back...
I am a soldier, Serving Proudly, standing tall.
I fight for freedom, yours and mine by answering this call.
I do my job while knowing, the thanks it sometimes lacks.
Say a prayer that I'll come home. It's me who's got your back.
Pray for our service men and women!!

May You Always Have Angels By Your Side
Original Author: Douglas Pagels
May you always have an angel by your side Watching out for you in all the things you do Reminding you to keep believing in brighter days Finding ways for your wishes and dreams to come true Giving you hope that is as certain as the sun Giving you the strength of serenity as your guide May you always have love and comfort and courage And may you always have an angel by your side Someone there to catch you if you fall Encouraging your dreams Inspiring your happiness Holding your hand and helping you through it all In all of our days, our lives are always changing Tears come along as well as smiles Along the roads you travel, may the miles be a thousand times more lovely than lonely May they give you gifts that never, ever end: someone wonderful to love and a dear friend in whom you can confide May you have rainbows after every storm May you have hopes to keep you warm And may you always have an angel by your side
- Douglas Pagels
I found this encouraging. Hope you do too!

We cried tears when we learned that a child
would be, that your God had allowed you to
quicken in me. We cried tears with our loved ones as
they shared our joy, and we thought abut names for
girl or a boy. I cried tears as I thought of the things that we
would do, all the things that your Daddy would pass on to you.
And I cried as I thought of each inch you had grown, as I
pondered the day you'd make yourself known. Then, to think of the world
you must enter brought fears. Once again, little loved
one, your Mother cried tears.
Something's wrong, I can tell - once again there are tears, and I'll
not get the chance of your love through the years. Oh the ache
and the sorrow and all of the pain, and again, yes, again, my tears
fell like rain. Then His peace comes to me as I think of you there,
gently rocking with FATHER in His favorite chair. Your sweet little
fingers clenched tight in His palm and His SON softly singing
to help keep you calm. Our FATHER knew your days before they
came to be, and He knew, little one, you would not stay with me.
So I cry but I know that when this life is done, I will greet
and embrace you my little sweet one. There's a time to be
born and a time to die, and the joy and the sorrow both
make us cry!
This gave me a lot of relief and tears after the losses we suffered. I hope it brings the same to someone else..

Only as high
Original Author: Unknown
Only as high as I reach can I grow,
Only as far as I seek can I go,
Only as deep as I look can I see,
Only as much as I dream can I be.
