Beautiful day for a wedding!

Not quite a year ago, a dear friend of mine lost her battle with cancer. She was my age and both of us had been survivors at the same time... twice. I have mentioned on more than one occasion how hard it still is for me to see her sweet family or go to their family events. But since I am so close to her daughter I just had to be there for her. I decided that probably it would be best if we just went to the reception, I don't think I could have handled the wedding. My heart still aches for her sweet family. Our friend looked beautiful, she was the perfect bride, I should know we have had a few of them in our family! :) Everyone looked happy except her Grandmother, she was crying most of the time. I tried to talked to her but I just kept tearing up myself. They say that for a Mother to lose a child is one of the toughest heartaches.

When we woke up to rain, I thought of this song as she was getting ready for her wedding. I feel sure that her Mom was close and watching over her and her sweet family. Yes, I believe Heaven is much closer than we think and I am grateful that it is.

I was also grateful to see that the weather cleared up in time for the wedding and reception.

Title: Mark Wills - Holes In The Floor Of Heaven lyrics


One day shy of 8 years old, grandma passed away.
I was a broken hearted little boy, blowin out that birthday cake.
How I cried when the sky let go, with a cold and lonesome rain,
Momma smiled said don't be sad child, grandma's watchin you today.
<Chorous>
Cuz there holes in the floor of heaven and her tears are pourin down
thats how you know she's watchin, wishing she could be here now.
and sometimes if your lonley , just remember she can see,
there's holes in the floor of heaven, and she's watchin over you and me.
Season's come and seasons go, nothing stays the same.
I grew up , fell in love , met a girl who took my name.
Year by Year, made a life in this sleepy little town.
I thought we'd grow old together , lord I sure do miss her now!
<Chrous >
But there's holes in the floor of heaven, and her tears are pourin down.
Thats how I know she's watchin , wishing she could be here now.
And sometimes when i'm lonley, I remember she can see,
there's holes in the floor of heaven, and she's watchin over you and me.
Well my little girl is 23, I walk her down the aisle,
Its a shame her mom can't be here now, to see her lovely smile.
They throw the rice, I catch her eye, As the rain starts comin down.
She takes my hand says daddy don't be sad ,Cuz I know Momma is watchin now.
And there's holes in the floor of heaven, and her tears are pourin down.
thats how you know she's watchin , wishin she could be here now. And sometimes when i'm lonely, I remember she can see,
Yes, there's holes in the floor of heaven , and she's watchin over you and me.
Watchin over you and me
Watchin over you and me
Watchin over you and me.

To carry all my love for you."
