A Letter to Heaven
(for Carrie)

My Dear Mom,
I'm having a good time here, but miss you.
At night I still cry. You know, about
What happened in the past
And what should have been said, or done.
But, you know all about that.

Since you left, we really miss your
Arms surrounding, kisses on my cheek
The warmth of youyet I know you're in a
Precious place with my Jesus and yours.

It must be so nice up there, right?
The same down here, really, with my husband
And baby and my family that loves me.
They're so patient with melike you used to be.
I sure miss you.

A word was spoken to me recently, about how
God watches over me. He worries about me.
Like you used to. And this person said my Jesus
Wants me to forgive, not forget, but FORGIVE
Anyone who hurt you, and me, you know who.

And guess what mom? I will, I do.
And I know My Jesus is happy about that.
I have so much to live for and there
Is much happiness that greets me each day.
This burden on my heart can be
Replaced with joy.

I have to go now. Jesus wants me to give a huge
Hug to my baby, and my husband.
God's plan is now shining
Through me.

Love, from Me.
