This book is a simple gift To share our love with you And thank you for your love And all of the wonderful things you do. For years you cared for us And nurtured our family Being the strong and supporting branch On our family tree. You took us out together For luches and for trips You took us to the ocean So we could take summer dips. And now the grandkids adore you And your tenderness with each one Is such a blessing to witness As you encourage their creativity and fun. You loved our mother and cherished her And have showered us with love Our whole lives through And we have created just a token to show Our Love For You!
All night he had stood by her bedside; Now one more kiss and he walked away. He was tall and slender With hair that had turned gray. He looked at us and said “It’s over. Our last dance together is done: I will treasure the memory, Of every single one.” “For our love was a dance, he said, Started when we were young and strong But continued through these many years When sometimes it was hard to move along. We danced to celebrate our wedding And the addition of tiny feet to our score, We dance to celebrate being together And never wanted anything more. We carried one another when needed And our steps slowed down a bit But never did we consider That our dance we ought to quit. We danced right through hardship And times when things were tough We danced through illness together When the going was really rough. We danced up the hills and down the valleys We danced on the sandy seashore But now my sweet partner is going home And shall dance there for evermore. I wish I could see onto Heaven’s balcony And send a kiss to her from me Just to say that I will join her someday And we shall dance through eternity. Thena
What an accomplishment! You should be so proud! And so should all of you who completed an entry! Wow! I couldn't even get my act together to create an entry. I think putting the entry together to send it is worthy of some sort of recognition in itself!
Congratulations to all of you, and thank you to the 2006 team! We enjoyed your work this past year!
Now, go out there and have fun being a Hall of Fame winner!
