"Without you around, I sleep like a baby."
The days of waking to your cries 
Long gone
No more rocking
No more long nights
Just memories
Just one more day
I would give to rock you
Like a baby
Just one more day
Of lullaby's
Cherished memories
Are all I have
As you now
Are a mom
With sleepless nights
As you rock your baby
Longing for
Sleep like a baby!
All to soon
To be a memory
As you
Turn around
You will too
Be sleeping like a baby!
With cherished memories
Longing for just one more
Sleepless night of rocking
Sleeping like a baby


Do you miss the days of rocking your baby's?

Ankle View
Below is two fundraiser links to help with medical bills. 
We have no medical insurance to cover medical.
As the weeks have gone by sine I have started back to work
The ankle continues to have many issues
I am thinking about a second opinion 
But that isn't really the reality for me.
So hoping come the end of the month the doctor will have some answers.
I have only been working about 16 hours a week
Some weeks even as little as four hours a week.
The bills are coming in as I struggle with each one 
The medical bills are the hardest ones.
They really don't like working with you.
I try to explain and 
But God is faithful!

Praise the Lord!

Received our first pay check
It doesn't stretch to far either.
The bills come tumbling in.
Thankful for the work!
Through much prayers 
And through encouragement of some friends they suggested I give these a try.
Though only two people have responded.
God has been faithful in other ways.
Medical bills are piling up.
Just the few that have arrived already are near $30,000 plus.
And still coming in.
God is faithful and I trust this is alp going to be paid in full;
and every need meet through Him
Thank you!

Oh yes, I miss rocking and holding my babies. They are now both in their 20's and holding their own babies.

Aw... good to relish memories, and to have the wisdom to cherish the moments as they transpire...

Your Centus reminds me of this painting by Gustav Klimt:

Glad I read this.

Judie said...

My eldest son would think I wrote this! There were many nights when I roused him up, just to rock him for the comfort!

Bo said...

I would give anything to go back to one more day.

Oh, that made me tear up. Yes, I do miss it. Mine are 30, 32 and nearly 23.

This was beautiful, Beth.

Jenny said...

Such a beautiful, poignant and teary eyed post.

I loved this...and the music in the background, too!

I can't help right now financially but I will again as soon as I can!

Hugs and prayers.
