I wrote this about 5 months after the death of my late husband...he was on this third mission trip to Zambia and came down with a kidney stone...on the way to the hospital 7 Hours away in Lusaka, the truck he was lying in the back of hit a concrete mile marker and flipped.  He died instantly.  

Salty Tears and Sweet Tea

Found a scrap book today....

the pictures had already begun to fade

it was made for you by our oldest

I guess it was for your birthday

the sweet faces of the babies we made

of you holding them..just took my breath away

 

I know you're in God's best of best places

he called you home unexpectedly

I see you in their precious faces

through my salty tears and sweet tea

 

It's been so hard to let you go

when we never said goodbye

so strange now to be all alone

how can six months just fly

 

I know you're in Gods best of best places

he called you home unexpectedly

I see you in their precious faces

salty tears in my sweet tea

Thank you Liv...those moments are fewer and further between as time has gone by, but I am thankful to have them...what a sad thing it is to not feel...they are proof of good things that have been in my life and a promise of good things to come.  I hope you have a wonderful day!   Sass
