In Memory Of Lincoln

I got my Pinwheels out today, in memory of a sweet little boy who passed away last year. His parents,  sister, family and friends have set aside his Birthday to celebrate his life, and are asking others to celebrate it too...by doing a simple act of service. What a great honor it was to participate in this Pinwheel Day for Lincoln!
To read more about Pinwheel Day's... timeline and see what others are doing to spin hearts today go here:
What a sweet way to remember such a special boy!
Our thoughts and prayers continually go out to his family!
If you are just reading this, then do your Simple Act of Service tomorrow!
It really can change lives!

The Cord

We are connected,
My child and I, by
An invisible cord
Not seen by the eye.

It's not like the cord
That connects us 'til birth
This cord can't been seen
By any on Earth.

This cord does it's work
Right from the start.
It binds us together
Attached to my heart.

I know that it's there
Though no one can see
The invisible cord
From my child to me.

The strength of this cord
Is hard to describe.
It can't be destroyed
It can't be denied.

It's stronger than any cord
Man could create
It withstands the test
Can hold any weight.

And though you are gone,
Though you're not here with me,
The cord is still there
But no one can see.

It pulls at my heart
I am bruised...I am sore,
But this cord is my lifeline
As never before.

I am thankful that God
Connects us this way
A mother and child
Death can't take it away!
