Ode to Joy


Google did these pictures


Ode to Joy


Do you know


the Feeling


Od spinning; reeling


In Extastic Dance?


Have you Ever


Laughed so hard


You had to hold on


Just to stand?


 


She gave such Joy


I can't


remember


How much


I loved her;


JustThat


 I wanted


to Dance


When she


 Gave me


A chance;


Sheer Happiness


Welled up


Inside


of me;


I laughed


Until


I cried


I miss her

I liked reading this. I laughed so hard once I passed out. Regards, Bill.

Who is she? This little joyful one you miss so much?

My youngest sister, my baby sister made me laugh so hard once (she was 11 years younger than I) that tears streamed from my eyes. I think that was the first time I felt true joy. I really was crying from laughing so hard. What a happy feeling that was. You describe it so well, Nat.

She was about four years old, I was about 15. She was a joyful child. I miss her. She was only 7 when I left home to go to college. She idolized me, her oldest sister. She eventually grew up in California where my parents had moved to after I got married and moved to NC. She eventually got pregnant, and married... in that order, and gave birth to a second child eight years later.

I miss my baby sister, Vickie. A horrible car accident claimed her life and her oldest daughter's life in 1997... she looked like me when I was younger. I see myself in the pictures I've kept of her. I miss her laughing, her childlike innocence that she somehow maintained in my eyes. I could never see her as grown up... she was always my little sister. And she didn't mind that I saw her that way. She was only 31 when she died, her daughter was 12. Such a sad, sad day... I can look at her pictures without bursting into tears now. I can smile when I see her face in photos. I can see her family photos and not fall into a dark mood.

But I miss her, too. Who is the one you miss, this joyful one?  Bea

OOOpppps! Nat... I meant to leave my URL address and left the zoe ministry address by accident. It was the last address I had copied while I was commenting in Kate's entry today. I didn't even pay attention when I pressed control-v, thinking my aoljournals site was still in the memory.... aaaggghhh!...sorry. bea
