But for some reason certain things stick.
I forgot I was in a wedding. A whole wedding.
I was visiting a good friend quite a few years ago and
while she was in another room I started looking thru her wedding album.
To my surprise, I was in the wedding. I did not let on to her
that I had forgotten this. I mean. That's a big HOLE.
So when she came in the room I said, "Those yellow dresses
were so pretty." And she said, "You picked them out!"
I was dying inside but never let on.
So yesterday when we were talking about songs, Stephie mentioned that she liked
Our mom liked Anne's song Snowbird. It was her favorite.
But sister Sue...she did not like that mom liked this song so much.
I think she thought mom wanted to fly away from her (us)(dad).
She was a sensitive girl. As I read the words now I can see what
she was thinking.
I can actually remember the exact moment she told me that she didn't like it.
She would have been about Katie's age.
I'm sorry she felt scared that mom was unhappy and wanted to fly away.
When I was young my heart was young then, too.And anything that it would tell me, that's the thing that I would do.But now I feel such emptiness within,For the thing that I want most in life's the thing that I can't win.
Spread your tiny wings and fly away,And take the snow back with you where it came from on that day.The one I love forever is untrue,And if I could you know that I would fly away with you.
“There are moments when I wish I could roll back the clock and take all the sadness away, but I have the feeling that if I did, the joy would be gone as well.”
Encourage one another,
