Missing a loved one

For those you have lost a loved one and still miss them, you must know that their spirit will always be with you and your family. Talk to friends and relatives about any signs or dreams from them. You will be amazed by the stories others will tell about them. 

Talk to loved one like you normally would and they will hear you. And if you quiet your mind enough you should be able to hear them too. 
[tell girls the story about Poopah’s reaction to Dan’s coughing next door.]

Watch the movie Dead Poets Society

“A sweaty-toothed madman, with a stare that pounds my brain.
His hands reach out and choke me.
And all the time he’s mumbling. Mumbling truth.
Like a blanket that always leaves your feet cold.
You push it, stretch it, it’ll never be enough.
You kick at it, beat it, it’ll never cover any of us.
From the moment we enter crying to the moment we leave dying,
it will just cover your face as you wail and cry and scream.”
Dead Poets Society

My Destination

By: MJP1

I bid sorrowful farewells to friends and family.
Knowing I will see them again soon.

I’m greeted by a beautiful chauffeur
dressed in a white and golden hat.

His car is perfect.
Better than a Cadillac or a Ferrari or a mini-van.
Almost like a carriage.

The ride is smooth.
Like an eagle gliding.
But smoother.
I see things out the window.
The view becomes more and more pleasant.
The colors are vibrant.
Almost there.

I step out of the car into paradise.
I see old friends and family I haven’t seen in a very long time.
I can feel the strength of the love all around me and inside me.
I’m there.
This is my destination.

Staring contest between father and daughter heals pain from busted lip

By MJP1… 

My little sister’s head bounced up and bashed my lip against my tooth.  I screamed, Screamed, SCREAMED in pain!  I spit blood in the sink.  My parents were trying to get me to put ice on my lip. They offered ice pops, ice cream, but I didn’t want any.  I finally gave in and put ice on it.  

My dad was trying to take my mind off the pain by having me focus on something else. I didn’t want to be tickled. I didn’t want to do anything until he suggested having a staring contest. We were allowed to blink but always had to be looking at one of the others pupils. It was dark and my dad said, “Keep staring while I turn on the lamp.”  One of a kind staring contest we were having by turning the lights on and off.  We could see the rainbow in our eyes.  We also played ping-pong with a fingertip between our eyes… ping-pong, ping-pong, ping-ping-pong. 

And the pain was gone!
