An Angel Left Her Wings
Tina M. Marascia

I have this little angel. For me she left her wings.
She has no idea how much happiness she truly brings.
She brightens up my days with her smiles and her laughs.
She helps me to remember all the blessings that I have.

Her face, it is so perfect, she's sweet and soft and pure.
Sometimes she can be willful and sometimes she is demure.
She tries her very hardest to please and do what's right.
She gives the greatest hugs from morning until night.

Every person that has known her sees this light within her soul
I know that in this whole great world, she has a special role.
She's helpful and considerate to everyone she knows
This light in her shines brighter as my angel grows.

When she sees someone is sad, it opens up her heart.
She wants to do all that she can; she wants to do her part.
She'll squeeze away the sorrow and make me forget about my pain.
She shows me where the sun is when we're hiding from the rain.

I know that God must love me, He showed me with His Grace
I knew just how completely when I saw my angel's face.
And in that very moment when she came into my world,
I knew that she was so much more than just my baby girl.

She would be my sunshine, with a sweetness that won't end.
And when she grows up one day she would be my closest friend.
She would be the reason I would always try my best.
For my little angel baby girl would be my greatest test.

When God entrusts to you an angel, who has left her wings for you.
Encircle her with love with everything you do.
Let her know God made her, and that He trusts you with her care.
Be sure to make time for special moments with her to share.

And when at night she finally says her prayers and goes to sleep
I Thank Him for my angel, and ask for him to always keep
A watchful eye and hand to protect her from this world.
Protect my little angel; protect my baby girl.

You Tell Me

Last night could have been a scene straight out of a horror film or comedy, you pick. It started with me telling Dylan to please take his glass FULL of juice into the kitchen. Once he is in the kitchen I hear the glass hit the floor and shatter. First thing I say is "Damn not another one". I had just dropped a plate 30 min earlier and broke it. I look in the kitchen to see Dylan staring at his foot as a pool of blood gathers under it. I pick him up and set him on the counter as I apply pressure and yell for Ryan to come in and help. The kitchen is starting to look a little scary. Dylan is freaking out because he thinks he is bleeding to death. Ryan comes into the kitchen and doesn't know what is going on. I ask him to start cleaning up the broken glass as I continue to try to stop the bleeding. At this time Dylan tells me his stomach is starting to hurt and a few seconds later he is gaging. I am now trying to hold pressure to his open cut and grab a bowl out of the cupboard for Dylan to throw up in. If you know Ryan then you know that he doesn't handle blood or throwing up well. He turned his back to us and has his head in the corner gaging. He is trying not to throw up. McKenzie has ran off to grab Sam because who would want to miss this scene. I finally get Dylan calmed down and with that Ryan is now doing better. I now have a chance to get a good look at the damage. Dylan has 2 different cuts on 2 different toes. The top of his big toe has a long cut down the top and he has managed to slice the top of his middle toe. GREAT!!! Now I have to tell Dylan that he needs stitches. Once that word leaves my mouth he starts to worry again and we start all over again with the gaging. I finally get everyone calmed down and Dylan and I are off to Instacare.

Science Project

McKenzie and Dylan have science projects due this week. There is nothing worse then science projects. I HATE them!!!! They have worked hard on them (when I say "they" I mean me). Dylan wanted to know if he could inflate a balloon using baking soda and vinegar. He was excited when he saw that it worked.

The best part of the Superbowl was when Christina Aguilera botched the National Anthem. Dylan kept saying "It looks like she is trying to poop". There were a couple good commercials. I liked the Darth Vader boy and the Doritos commercial, "Are you done with that?" Other then that I could care less about the game. I did enjoy the food we ate and probably ate too much. Actually I am sure I did eat too much.
