I heard this song the other day when I dropped off Brad, Krystal and my Kai boy at the airport. I couldn't help but cry, I miss them already and especially Kai! He is my blode hair, dark eyes, sweet and funny little boy. This trip we probably got closer to him than we ever had. I am sure it is because we had 2 weeks here with him, but nevertheless was a Memory that I am so grateful for!

Little boy, when you speak
I can’t help but kiss your cheeks
I love the way you grab my hands
And tell me all about your plans

Rocket high, comets fly
You and I could take a ride
And fly away to Neverland
And give our best to Peter Pan

When you reach for the stars
Don’t forget who you are
And please don’t turn around and grow up way too fast
See the sand in my grasp
From the first to the last
Every grain becomes a memory of the past
Oh, life’s an hourglass
Life’s an hourglass

Story’s read, prayer is said
Close your eyes sleepyhead
While angels linger in your dreams
And hold you in their feathered wings
Just like you, I was small
Not that long ago at all
I wish you all the happiness
That God gives freely if you ask


Then I couldn't help but remember another sweet blonde hair but blue eyes, fun and happy boy of ours... Bradley. We just celebrated his birthday when he was here. How grateful we are for him in our lives.
Where did the time go? Now he is a Dad and we are watching the next generation grow up. How blessed I feel to be able to watch my grandchildren grow up, and teach me more and more about LIFE!
