"Does that Blue Moon Ever Shine on You"


That verse is from one of my favorite songs. I forget now who sings it but Yahoo told me that the reason it is called a blue moon is because it is the second full moon of the month. I didn't know that. I've always heard the expression "once in a blue moon". That's tonight.
Read about Blue Moon here.

It has been a sad couple of days, very sad. It feels longer but yesterday afternoon, I learned my friend's young son was killed by a reckless, speeding driver while he riding his bike in front of his house on their dead-end street. It is so tragic, I can't begin to express my sorrow for them and their family. My middle sister's son was killed when he was only eight years old on a four wheeler. I saw, first hand, the despair of a mother. One can only pray.

From ever on, when I hear of a blue moon,
I will always remember those beautiful souls that were taken,
too soon.

Thanks girls, I do believe in the power of prayer. Wish there was more that could be done to help them. I took food to their home but don't know how I can help otherwise. Just pray.

Children shouldn't die, but they do. May the parents, family, and all the loved ones find strength and courage to make it through this time. You are a Godsend to anyone who needs a friend, I am sure. They are blessed to have you. Take care of yourself Teri...
