I had spoken to her several times in church but did not know her very well. I noticed a sparkle in her blue eyes every time we greeted one another. At the time I was teaching the Senior Adult Sunday School class she was also attending. I had thought about asking her for a date, but felt a bit awkward about it, due to the fact that I was her teacher. I had planned an outing for the class to go to a restaurant called Memories in Etowah, a small town about a half-hour drive away. Ah, I had a plan! I called everyone in the class to see how many were interested in going and when I called her I discretely asked her to be my guest, in other words, I asked her for a date!

When we got on the bus we sat down together, and it was as if we had known each other much longer. The restaurant was very nice with lighting that created an ambiance all around us. When we got back to the church each of us got back in our cars to go home and I told her that I enjoyed being with her, and she did likewise. As we left I watched her drive away in her black Ford and I missed her already. I told myself that it couldn’t be, not that fast. I was falling in love with her! Little did I know it, but she was falling in love with me as well.

Please God, Just One More Day

  My dear sweet Heavenly Father I come to you today

With faith and hope I ask

Please God…Don’t take my Mom away

One day with her is all I ask, just one more day together

If I could have one more day with her I would make it last forever

I know her time is near and soon you’ll take her home

Where she will be so perfect and a beautiful Angel she’ll roam

Heaven with more colors than we even know

Where even the rarest of flowers sing in the loveliest picture show

Her sparkle lights up the darkness like the brightest star of night

Rising in our hearts her brightest loving light

Life will never be the same since she was called away

Her light shone bright in the darkest hours of each and every day

I believe that she is with me when the sorrow is too much

I believe that she reaches out to me

I know that I feel her touch

When tomorrow starts without her don’t think we’re far apart

For every time I think of her she’s right here in my heart

Every day I miss the smile that no one can replace

Yet still it brings me comfort in the sadness that I face

Until we meet again I’ll find the strength to live through each new day

Grateful for the happy years before she went away

My Dear sweet Heavenly Father with hope and faith I pray

Please take us all to Heaven’s final resting place, at last, we all can stay

Please God, Just One More Day.

I Love You Mom…With all of My Heart,

Your Daughter,

Shirley
