In Remembrance

Remembering my angel, Aydan. Today would be his third birthday. We miss you.

Aydan Emmanuel Mabe
12/28/05 ~ 03/11/06

I looked toward the clouds today,
and for a moment saw your face.
I know that you have gone
to such a peaceful place.

Did you show yourself to me today
to tell me you're all right?
Or was it just a daydream
playing tricks upon my sight?

Then I thought of when you left,
still too young to say a word.
Yet the look you gave us said it all
in our hearts, your good-bye was heard.

You have changed our lives forever.
Your short time here not in vain.
And hope you know we tried it all,
to keep you safe from pain.

We will always feel the void inside,
because you are not here.
But each new thought you send our way,
let's us know you're always near.

So until our journey nears it's end
and we hear the Angels sing.
We'll face each new day as it comes
and live off the Love you bring.

~James Sullivan

I'll Be There
Daddy, please don't look so sad,
Mommy please don't cry.
Because I am in the arms of Jesus
And He sings me lullabies.
Please try not to question God,
Don't think he is unkind
Don't think He sent me to you,
And then he changed His mind.
You see, I am a special child,
And I'm needed up above.
I'm the special gift you gave Him,
The product of your love.
I'll always be there with you,
And watch the sky at night,
Find the brightest star that's gleaming,
That's my halo's brilliant light.
You'll see me in the morning frost,
That mists your window pane,
That's me in the summer showers,
I'll be dancing in the rain.
When you feel a little breeze,
From a gentle wind that blows,
That's me I'll be there
Planting a kiss on your nose.
When you see a child playing,
And your heart feels a little tug,
That's me I'll be there giving your heart a hug.
So Daddy, please don't look so sad,
Mommy don't you cry.
I'm in the arms of Jesus,
And he sings me lullabies.

Gosh, I can't believe there's only
19 days 'til Christmas!!!
I need to get busy with my shopping. I've hardly done any yet! I always put everything off to the last minute.

I was able to find wonderful homes for both of the abandoned kittens. That was a huge relief. I don't think I could have found better homes for them. It was a good thing too, because we were all starting to get very attached.

I started a new shop,
Newfound Treasures
where I am selling vintage stuff! I have some awesome vintage Christmas pins for sale. This one has been featured in a treasury on Etsy, but it expired before I thought to get a screen shot of it.

Buy Handmade

I'll leave you with Britney Spears' new video "Circus" which premiered today.

Cats, Cake, and Cooking ... Oh My!

First of all, DH's (that's "dear husband", for those of you who don't know) birthday was Monday. For the first time ever, I went out and bought an ice cream cake!! From where else, but Cold Stone Creamery. Yellow cake, sweet cream ice cream, chocolate shavings, fluffy frosting, and cookie dough goodness...Y.U.M!

Then, yesterday, we found two ADORABLE, abandoned kittens.
We all want to keep them, but it's just impossible with (**whispers very quietly** six) indoor cats already! They are just the cutest things! And so lovable. I hope I can find them good homes, and fast! If you're in the area, and you're interested in one of these little babies, please get in touch. (I'm adding a link to an online ad for them.) Like I said, they're adorable; one short-hair, solid black with green eyes; one long-hair white and gray with blue eyes. Both of them are girls and need lots of love. ♥

Well, today will be spent taking care of these little guys, digging the Christmas tree/decorations out of storage, and cooking, cooking, and more cooking.
I hope everybody has a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!
