I hear it all the time, people want to know when they are going to die, people don't want to know. It's a very touchy subject with some but the rule is ... You live and you die. We are all going to get there. This poem was inspired by the passing of my sister-in-law. She has had a couple of rough years with medical issues scattered throughout but she is a fighter and she got through and became stronger. Only to be diagnosed mid May 2013 with what would be her last diagnosis of yet another cancer. She was given a timeline of 3 - 6 months. Devastating news for anyone to hear. She was a Blessed Woman, always with a kind spirit, a smile in her heart, and a giving sole. After her diagnosis, she lived but a month but it gave her children, family and friends time to say farewell until we meet on the other side . . . This is for you Myrna!

I have seen far too many parents who think it is enough to enroll their kids in sports activities and then don't bother to spend time practicing with their kids. Kids want to spend time with their parents. They want to feel loved. They want to know you care. Sure they like the toys but they thrive on love.

The inspiration for this poem I owe to my daughter, Amanda. We were traveling in the car coming home from visiting family and she was looking out the window at the ocean, very deep in thought, and said, "I always wanted to see the moonlight crackle on the water." To me, it was such a descriptive statement that I made a mental note to store away for a later time, knowing that one day I would write about it. I honestly don't thin she realized she said it loud enough for anyone to hear but so glad she did. Thank you Amanda for your inspirations, you give off more than you know.
