Another Light Gone

My heart goes out to the family and friends of Natasha Richardson. She just succumbed to a head injury sustained while skiing in Quebec. I can’t even begin to fathom the pain that her loved ones must be feeling. Too soon, too soon.

It’s simply tragic. It also serves as a chilling reminder of the fleeting nature of life. One minute you could be having fun, thrilled with the accomplishment of learning a new skill. The next minute, you are in the hospital fighting for your life. And then….

Find the light in the darkness of Natasha’s passing. Live, laugh, and love.

May the angels find her and keep her.

May her husband and sons find strength and peace.

Angel Outside My Window

An Angel flew past my window last night,
No, I’m sure it wasn’t a firefly.
Nor a star shooting across the dark sky,
And, surely, not a misguided butterfly.
It was an Angel outside my window last night.

An Angel flew past my window at dawn,
Dancing a delicate pirouette on the lawn
All the while singing her heavenly song,
For only a moment then she was gone.
An Angel was outside my window at dawn.

An Angel flew past my window today.
A creature so lovely I begged her to stay.
She smiled, spread her wings, and soared away,
Her brightness replaced by a shroud of gray.
An Angel was outside my window today.

If an Angel flies past your window tonight
So beautiful and thoughtful and radiating light.
Glory to God! For granting the sight
Of His Angel’s brief visit on her divine flight.
If an Angel appears outside your window tonight.

      Hey Joe!

      There has been talk about making helmets mandatory for skiers just like it is for cyclists. It’s unfortunate that it takes a tragedy like this to wake people up. Hopefully, it will happen so that some good can come out of her passing.

      Thank you for stopping by!
