Al, My Brother

I was wondering if I could get as many as possible to help me celebrate my brother’s anniversary date of his going to heaven and getting rid of MSA. He will be gone one year on March 24th. This is next Tuesday. This is what I would like you to do since we are all friends in these MSA groups. Instead of having a cake with purple candles, will you use a pen or marker and write something to Al on a purple balloon, blow it up, tie a knot in it and then let it soar to heaven? Just one is all you need to do. I am going to do mine in the morning since he left in the morning. What do you think, can we fill the skies with purple balloons in celebration of my brother getting rid of MSA????? If you agree and would like to help me, please share it with your friends. Hugs, Terry!

Follow Your Dream


For all we were and are

Where we once walked so far

Looking back I can still see

Footprints of my dreams

Choices we have made

Either right or wrong

I can see broken paths

Then some so very strong

Twigs turn to branches

Buds turn to leaves

Some a brilliant yellow

Others turn to rust

It is our path to walk

We ask no one to follow

Advice I did not seek

For what’s to come tomorrow

When I stand here and look back

I see my structure bared

I  glimpse  outlines of my life

I can see that I have grown

I turn and look out yonder

I wonder what it will bring

I take one step and then another

I will finish out my dream.
