PEACEFUL THANKSGIVING — keithgarrettpoetry
DEAR LITTLE BOY OF MINE
Bobby
3 months old

From Sarah :
I AM THANKFUL FOR MY MEMORIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had a Wonderful Childhood. Amazing Parents who loved and respected each other more than any other couple I KNOW OR WILL EVER KNOW. Because of the love they shared my brother ,sister and I thrived.
I had grandparents and 2 sets of great grandparents who taught me a lot about LIVING.
Because Of The LOVE MY PARENTS SHARED, I was able to be AN AMAZING MOM TO MY ONLY CHILD, BOBBY.
I WAS AN AMAZING AUNT to Michael, Leah and Tyler.
I was a single parent but I NEVER LET THAT HOLD ME BACK RAISING BOBBY AND HELPING TO RAISE MY NIECE AND NEPHEWS.
Wherever I went, they went. ALWAYS. OK, Almost always.
Bob went back to Illinois for a few weeks every summer. I missed him the whole time.
I THANK GOD for ALL OF THOSE MEMORIES.
They have helped hold me TOGETHER the pst 13 plus years.
I miss my parents every day.
MOST OF ALL, I AM THANKFUL FOR MY MEMORIES OF BOBBY.
BOBBY,
I LOVE AND MISS YOU.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING IN HEAVEN

I am even THANKFUL FOR THE TEARS THAT ARE FALLING RIGHT NOW.
