Forever loved & deeply missed.
"What we have once enjoyed we can never lose.
All that we love deeply becomes a part of us."
~ Helen Keller
I am thinking of my precious friends, the Ledee family with much love on this day and always.
Ten years ago, I inscribed the following by hand on the back of the 9/11 quilt I made. It hangs in my livingroom to this day. The words are as meaningful to me now, as they were then.
"We pray for the power to be gentle;
The strength to be forgiving;
The patience to be understanding;
And the endurance to accept the consequences
Of holding what we believe to be right.
May we put our trust in
The power of good to overcome evil
And the power of love
To overcome hatred.
We pray for the vision to see
And the faith to believe in a world
Emancipated from violence,
A new world where fear
Shall no longer lead men to commit injustice,
Nor selfishness make them
Bring suffering to others.
Help us to devote our whole life
And thought and energy
To the task of making peace,
Praying always for the inspiration
And the power to fulfill the destiny
For which we were created."
