Dawn, the Morning After

The morning after our beloved Mother and Grandmother left us we went for an early morning walk to settle our hearts and minds.

 The sun was just coming up over the harbor, reminding us that with each sunrise a new day dawns fresh with opportunities to make amends and to be grateful for the gift of life.

The woman we will miss was gentle and patient, the matriarch of a large and boisterous family.  Her greatest wish was for peace.  Peace amongst her numerous children and grandchildren and peace in the world as a whole.

In her honor we sing this hymn:

Let There be Peace on Earth, And let it Begin with Me

Let There be Peace on Earth, the Peace that was Meant to Be!

With God as our Father, Brothers All Are We

Let Me walk with my Brother in Perfect Harmony

Let Peace Begin with Me.  Let This be the Moment Now.

With Ev’ry Breath I Take, Let this be My Solemn Vow

To Take Each Moment, And Live Each Moment, In Peace Eternally!

Let There be Peace on Earth, And let it Begin with Me

 Bounce drew a plane to help Grammy on her travels.  Our hearts are with her everyday.  While on earth, we will make every effort to honor her memory through our peaceable actions

“Be the change you want to see in the world.” Mahatma Gandhi
