For My Sister Kathy ~ I Love You!

As long as I can remember my sister Kathy was the person I always wanted to be like. She is strong and wise. She has always been there for me when I needed a shoulder to cry on. This is for you Kathy....

You'll Be in My Heart (Phil Collins)

Come stop your crying
It will be all right
Just take my hand
Hold it tight
I will protect you from all around you
I will be here
Don't you cry
For one so small, you seem so strong
My arms will hold you, keep you safe and warm
This bond between us
Can't be broken
I will be here
Don't you cry
'Cause you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From this day on Now and forever more
You'll be in my heart
No matter what they sayYou'll be here in my heart, always
Why can't they understand the way we feel
They just don't trust what they can't explain
I know we're different but,deep inside us
We're not that different at all
And you'll be in my heartYes, you'll be in my heart
From this day onNow and forever more
Don't listen to them'Cause what do they know
We need each other,to have, to hold
They'll see in timeI know
When destiny calls you
You must be strongI may not be with you
But you've got to hold on
They'll see in timeI know
We'll show them together
'Cause you'll be in my heartYes,
you'll be in my heart
From this day on,
Now and forever more
Oh, you'll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You'll be in my heart, alwaysAlways

Hi Gail,

Your blog is a really nice spot to come to! Why don't you start a consulting side business? Or a shop?

I agree,you are blessed with Kathy as your sister. I have admired her calm steadiness and great sense of humor that never seems to waver.

Cathy (who is also happy to be a Jones)

Hi Gail,
This is such a beautiful tribute to your sister! I am blessed to have three sisters, whom I never see enough, living in different states can make visiting on a regular basis difficult.

Thank you for reminding me, I want to call each on this fine day and hear their voices. They always manage to bring a smile to my heart whenever I share a moment with them~
Have a wonderful day!
