How do I love thee ? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,--I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life !--and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
-Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Magic Love
I will love you...
As long as I can dream
As long as I can think
As long as I have a memory
I will love you.
As long as I have eyes to see
And ears to hear
And lips to speak
I will love you
As long as I have...
A heart to feel
A soul stirring within me
An imagination to hold you
I will love you
As long as there is time
As long as there is love
As long as there is you
As long as I have a breath To speak your name
I will love you
Because I love you more
Than anything in all the world

The Lord will never leave us or forsake us.
He promised He would be with us through it all.
It often seems He's walking right beside us.
As He guides us through our problems,
large and small.
But there are times we just can't feel His presence.
When the road's so rough, we need him all the more.
We wonder why we're so alone and helpless.
Why His hands not there to lead us as before.
But if we listen quietly, He'll tell us,
Take a moment and remember what I said:
"If you fail to see me walking right beside you,
It's because I have you in my arms instead.
For together, we will cross the highest mountain,
Together we will face the stormy sea.
You are never alone, you're never helpless.
I'll carry you, let go and lean on me."

My darling son, it has been 8 months and a
day since I last spoke to you and hugged
you. Reid, I miss you so much. Baby, you
were my rock and still are. I know you hear
me talking to you all the time for I am
constantly praying to God to watch over us
and over you and to help guide us through
this terrible tragedy, losing you. It still
doesnt seem real. I can still hear your
voice,you and hollering "M O M M A"!
I need this or that or can we do this or so
and so is coming over...what a joy of life
that God took from me obviously because
he wanted you home with him. I am trying
really hard to accept that. Kimbre misses
you so greatly that she missed another day
of school for not being able to stop crying,
then there is Glenn, Kimbre claims as her
best friend at that time of the accident.
All I know is, we will keep struggling each
and every day, only with Gods help, and
be able to be OK. The love we shared and
I feel for you will never go away, that
whole in my heart will never be filled until
the day that I am home with you and
God in Paradise. But!! your personality is
still coming out in Kimbre!!! I think you are
doing that on purpose!!! LOL!!
I love you my precious son.
I miss you my precious son.
I will love you forever and ever my precious son.
You and Kimbre are the light of my life and will always be.
Love you always and missing you my darling, treasured son.
Love, Mom February, 3 2002
