S: Hilda Godsey

BC: With Love | Christmas 2012

FC: A family is made of love and tears, laughter and years. It grows stronger with the passing of time. More precious with the making of memories. sometimes a family is made of ones you don't like for a while..... But you love for a life time. It's a gift whose value is found Not in numbers but in its capacity to love. It's the place you find someone to encourage you. believe in you. Celebrate with you and comfort you. A family is where your heart feels most at home because you're Always wanted, always welcomed, Always needed, Always Loved.

1: "But there's a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all your stories is always your mother's story, because hers is where yours begin."

2: A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit...

3: ...a golden thread to the meaning of life

5: My Daughter has made the darkness in my heart light up brighter than I ever thought possible. My Daughter gives me a reason to live and try each and every day. I cannot thank our Lord enough for blessing me with her. And as blessings come, so do disappointments. There are trials and rewards throughout everyone's life. My Daughter has helped me through the most difficult times of my life. I can only PRAY she will allow me to be there for hers.

6: A mother held her new baby and very slowly rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And while she held him, she sang: I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my baby you'll be. The baby grew. He grew and he grew and he grew. He grew until he was two years old, and he ran all around the house. He pulled all the books off the shelves. He pulled all the food out of the refrigerator and he took his mother's watch and flushed it down the toilet. Sometimes his mother would say, "this kid is driving me CRAZY!" But at night time, when that two-year-old was quiet, she opened the door to his room, crawled across the floor, looked up over the side of his bed; and if he was really asleep she picked him up and rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. While she rocked him she sang: I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my baby you'll be. The little boy grew. He grew and he grew and he grew. He grew until he was nine years old. And he never wanted to come in for dinner, he never wanted to take a bath, and when grandma visited he always said bad words. Sometimes his mother wanted to sell him to the zoo! But at night time, when he was asleep, the mother quietly opened the door to his room, crawled across the floor and looked up over the side of the bed. If he was really asleep, she picked up that nine-year-old boy and rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And while she rocked him she sang: I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my baby you'll be. The boy grew. He grew and he grew and he grew. He grew until he was a teenager. He had strange friends and he wore strange clothes and he listened to strange music. Sometimes the mother felt like she was in a zoo! But at night time, when that teenager was asleep, the mother opened the door to his room, crawled across the floor and looked up over the side of the bed. If he was really asleep she picked up that great big boy and rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. While she rocked him she sang: I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my baby you'll be. That teenager grew. He grew and he grew and he grew. He grew until he was a grown-up man. He left home and got a house across town. But sometimes on dark nights the mother got into her car and drove across town. If all the lights in her son's house were out, she opened his bedroom window, crawled across the floor, and looked up over the side of his bed. If that great big man was really asleep she picked him up and rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And while she rocked him she sang: I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my baby you'll be. Well, that mother, she got older. She got older and older and older. One day she called up her son and said, "You'd better come see me because I'm very old and sick." So her son came to see her. When he came in the door she tried to sing the song. She sang: I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always... But she couldn't finish because she was too old and sick. The son went to his mother. He picked her up and rocked her back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And he sang this song: I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my Mommy you'll be. When the son came home that night, he stood for a long time at the top of the stairs. Then he went into the room where his very new baby boy was sleeping. He picked him up in his arms and very slowly rocked him back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And while he rocked him he sang: I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, As long as I'm living my baby you'll be.

8: Me and some of the boys were sitting around the other night Started talking about politics, religion, love and life And what a shame it was about 9/11 And what about hell and what about heaven And is there or isn't there angels on earth And then one guy said Well you can take that for what it's worth If it's something I can see or something I can touch Well I might believe in all that stuff So I just had to say to him Are you telling me that you've never seen an angel? Never felt the presence of one standing by? No robe of white No halo in site Well you missed the most obvious thing Man, are you blind? Just look in your mothers eyes

9: L.R.L | L.R.L | L.R.L. | L.R.L. | L.R.L. | L.R.L. | L.R.L. | L.R.L. | L.R.L. | L.R.L. | L.R.L. | L.R.L.

11: As mothers and daughters, we are connected with one another. My mother is the bones of my spine, keeping me straight and true. She is my blood, making sure it runs rich and strong. She is the beating of my heart. I cannot now imagine a life without her

13: It's A Boy!!! | Before you were conceived I wanted you Before you were born I loved you | Before you were here an hour I would die for you This is the miracle of love.

15: Baby Fred

18: I know your life on earth was troubled And only you could know the pain You weren't afraid to face the Devil You were no stranger to the rain Go rest high on that mountain Son your work on earth is done Go to Heaven a shoutin' Love for the Father and the Son Oh, how we cried the day you left us We gathered round your grave to grieve Wish I could see the angels' faces When they hear your sweet voice sing So go rest high on that mountain Son, your work on earth is done Go to Heaven a shoutin' Love for the Father and the Son

19: I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day--and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing. | 2 Timothy 4, 7-8
