FC: Mom's 80th Celebration!
1: We Have This Moment | Hold tight to the sounds of the music of living, Happy sounds of the laughter of children at play, Hold my hand as we run Through the sweet fragrant meadows, Making memories of what was today. Tender words, gentle touch, And the warmth of the sunshine, And someone who loves me and wants me to stay, Hold them near while they're here, And don't wait for tomorrow To look back and wish for today. Take the blue of the sky and the green of the forest and the gold and the brown of the freshly mown hay, Add the pale shades of spring and the circus of autumn, And weave you a lovely today! (Gaither) | Chorus: For we have this moment To hold in our hands and to touch As it slips through our fingers like sand, Yesterday's gone, And tomorrow may never come, But we have this moment today. | Lois Diane Marilee | Mom, thank you for cherishing the moments....
