Borrowed Angels by PridesCrossing Borrowed Angels by PridesCrossing
In memory of my grandson's best friend Alex who died a year ago today at the age of 17...taken away to soon.

:star: [link] :star:


Borrowed Angels
They shine a little brighter, they feel a little more
They touch your life in ways no one has ever done before
They love a little stronger, they live to give their best
They make our lives so blest, so why do they go so soon?
The ones with souls so beautiful
I heard someone say--

There must be Borrowed Angels, here in this life
They come along, into this world, and make this world bright
But they can't stay forever
Cause they're heaven sent
And sometimes, heaven needs them back again

They reach a little deeper, they see what's in your soul
And even when they leave you know, you'll never let them go
The world's a little richer, just cause they came along
Their love goes on and on, so why do they go so soon?
The ones with souls so beautiful. I heard someone say--

There must be Borrowed Angels, here in this life
They come along, into this world, and make this world bright
They can't stay forever, cause they're heaven sent
And sometimes, heaven needs them back again

How else can you explain why they're here and not here to stay?
I believe there must be, must be

Borrowed Angels, here in this life
They come along, into this world, and make this world bright
But they can't stay forever, cause there heaven sent
And sometimes heaven needs them back again.
And sometimes heaven needs them back again.

:) :wave:Hi Melissa!!Just saw the journal entry,thanks so much for doing that!
I'm so far behind on everything concerning DA,not sure when I will get things
caught up!!Big changes going on right now! Lee decided about a month ago that
he felt it was time to retire,it was a really hard decision to make but with
his health issues we both came to the conclusion that it was the best thing to
do!Not sure about the financial aspects of it(his retirement plan isn't quite what we hoped for)
but we will get by I'm sure,just need to make a lot of changes!

I'm way behind on dA, as well, Sandy! I have such a stack of deviations to go through! I feel so bad for not getting through them, yet! :ohmygod: Someday...:fingerscrossed:

I saw Lee's note on Facebook, earlier this morning. I haven't had a chance to read his journal, yet, but, I'm assuming it's similar. I will get around to reading it, one of these days! ;-) I know that must have been a tough decision, but, sounds like a good one, as well as a necessary one. As far as financial aspects, we all adjust. I think you guys will be just fine after awhile. You have each other! That's whats important! As long as you keep that front and center, you got the tiger by the tail! ;-) :hug:

:nod:Oh I know I've got more than 9000 to go through myself,but I'll get through them
one of these days!!:laughing:
I think it is really for the best and if things get tight,it's not like we both couldn't
find some sort of way to supplement our income,I'm just happy that he will be out of that
place finally,he hasn't been happy there for many years now and the stress has taken it's
toll on him!!

I'm sure it's a good move for the both of you. It will take a little getting used to, but, you'll both probably end up wondering why he waited so long! :-)

I am so sorry for your loss too. To lose your mom and brothers all at the same time is such a tragedy! I can only imagine how hard it was for you.:iconsqueezehugplz: You're right, a lot of people have lost loved ones too soon and this is a wonderful tribute for all of them.

Ohhh, Sandy. I'm sure you did have a hard time while making it. It's such a heartfelt piece, there's no way you couldn't have been emotionally wrought while working on it. :hug: I know "anniversaries" of this type are hard on families. I'm sure his is no different. I feel for his. :tears: :hug: :heart:
