The Eagle Landed

It does my heart good this morning to remember and write about something other than somebody in my life dying. Looking back 40-years ago, I was 15-years old and I remember this day so vividly. I had three sets of heroes in my life at that time, astronauts, pro wrestlers, and funeral directors. Amazing... huh?

Like many 15-year olds back in those days I was indeed a "space nut". It felt so good to have heroes who exceeded the bounds of our everyday life. Even today, I still feel that same unexplainable feeling in my gut, and the goosebumps as well, when I watch Apollo 11 blastoff from Cape Kennedy.

I saved all the newspaper and magazine clippings, which I still have today. I built and launced my own model rockets, while keeping my eyes focused on stars. I knew the words by heart... "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

Maybe this is what we need in our lives today. More heroes...

Be Blessed.

I Believe

Every now and then, soft as breath upon my skin,
I feel you come back again,
And it’s like you haven’t been gone a moment from my side,
Like the tears were never cried,
Like the hands of time are holding you and me,
And with all my heart I’m sure we’re closer than we ever were,
I don’t have to hear or see you,
I’ve got all the proof I need,
There are more than angels watching over me,
I believe, oh I believe.
Now when you die your life goes on,
It doesn’t end here when you’re gone, It never ends,
and if I’m right Our love can even reach across eternity I believe,
oh I believe Forever you’re a part of me
Forever in the heart of me
I would hold you even longer if I can
Oh the people who don’t see the most Say that I believe in ghosts
If that makes me crazy, then I am ‘Cause I believe
Oh yes, I believe
There are more than angels watching over me
I believe, oh I believe
Every now and then soft as breath upon my skin
I feel you come back again
~And I believe.

It's hard to believe 24-weeks (6-months) tonight I lost my Dianna.

I can't bring her back, but I can go where she is.


Be Blessed.
