Happy Thanksgiving My Baby Boy!
I Thank God for blessing me with you for a son.... I Thank God for all the laughs
and tears we had....I Thank God for all the memories I have.... I Thank God for keeping you safe and warm... I Thank God for
keeping your smile shining bright.... I Thank God for your star I see at night!
I love you, Mother
Autumn leaves are falling,
Pretty colors everywhere.
Thanksgiving day is almost here,
Another day that we may share.
The things we take for granted
Are blessings from above.
The needs He has provided,
Were given to us in love.
Let's give thanks for what we have,
Bow our heads and together pray.
As we join our friends and family,
On this Thanksgiving Day.
I Have a Place in Heaven
Please don't sing sad songs for me, Forget your grief and fears, For I am in a perfect place Away from
pain and tears.
It's far away from hunger And hurt and want and pride, I have a place in Heaven With the Master at my side.
My life on earth was very good, As earthly life can go, But Paradise is so much more Than anyone can know.
My heart is filled with happiness And sweet rejoicing, too. To walk with God is perfect peace, A
joy forever new.

When I Must Leave You
When I must leave you
a little while,
Please do not grieve
And shed wild tears
And hug your sorrow to you
Through the years,
start out bravely
With a smile.
And for my sake
And in my name,
Live on and do
All the things the same.
Feed not your loneliness
On empty days,
But fill each waking hour
In useful ways.
Reach out your hand in comfort
And in cheer,
And I, in turn, will comfort you
And hold you near.
And never, never
Be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you

Though you are filled with sorrow and pain over the loss of your child, you can be thankful for:
~The memories you hold close
~The time you shared with your child, no matter how short it was.
~The things your child taught you.
~The friends that are there when you need them.
And you can also be thankful for:
~The strength that makes you a survivor.
~The smiles of other children; they are not our missing
children, but they still smile.
