For my sisters...
Because we are sad tonight... Remembering our father, Theodore Fonda Cole, 1923-2008.
Thank you, Ellen, for the angel and Lore for this Irish Blessing which I altered slightly:
My wish for us is:
that we might be brave in times of trial,
when others lay crosses upon our shoulders
when mountains must be climbed
and chasms are to be crossed
when hope scarce can shine through
that every gift God gave us
might grow along with us
And let us give the gift of joy
to all who care for us
that we may always have a friend
who is worth that name
whom we can trust
and who helps us in times of sadness
who will defy the storms of daily life at our side
One more wish I have for us:
That in every hour of joy and pain we may feel God close to us.
Sweet dreams, love you all!
