I believe:
I married young,
and had my children one by one
because God knew before too long,
that I'd be sick, not young and strong.

I believe:
This man of mine,
was carefully picked for me to find,
because I'd need someone to be there
when I would feel life wasn't fair.

I believe:
God made my parents strong,
because I'd need them for so long.
They've been with me through all these years
and held me through my trials and tears.

I believe:
I have three girls,
no better daughters in the world,
always there if I felt bad
and there to talk when I feel sad.

I believe:
God called a special man, to come and be with him,
One who signed a special card, to give the ultimate at the end.
He needed me to stay on earth for reasons, I don't know,
but I'll do just what He tells me, till it's time for me to go.

I believe:
God's given me a second chance,
and now I have to dance the dance.
I cannot know what lies ahead,
but I will follow where I'm led.

note: I was a type one diabetic. I had a kidney and pancreas transplant on April 23, 1998. Thanks to God and Joe.

I believe:
I believe:
You have a gift
to share upon this site.
To help to bring our darkest days
From shadow into light.

I believe:
That those who've left,
Are always by our side.
And read our thoughts and written words
Wherever we may hide.

I beleive:
that you Kathie
Have have found within your pain.
A way to share your feelings
To find sunshine after rain.

I believe:
If only all
Could learn from your refrain
We wrap ourselves in happiness
And never cry again.

Dear Kathie..
This a touching poem of ur life. I felt sad reading ur note. But I am glad that u are doing ok now. Life is like that..U never no what will come up in the next page..Life is like a novel. ( from Sydney Sheldon's novel )

I had lost my father when I was 14. I know how one feels..sometimes I wish I could turn the clock back and bring him back..but then nothing can be done..nothing..

I pray that u should happily live more than 100 years with ur family and children.

Take care and keep posting.
