Welcome to Barb's Peaceful Place

Time doesn't heal the way the heart feels...Nor does it erase the memories we retrace...We will see you soon Dad. Love and miss you.. Almost 36 months...

Turn your face to the sun,
and the shadows fall behind you


As the summer quietly fades,
Days are not so long,
The sweltering heat disappears
The birds sing a different song.

Soon the frost will be seen,
In the pumpkin patch,
The apples ripe for harvest time
Are baked up in a batch.

Ginger spice and cinnamon,
Linger in the air,
Crisp short days of autumn,
Are felt everywhere.

The leaves change their color,
No longer a bright green.
Now shades of brown & gold
And colors in between.

September & October,
A special time of year.
Counting down to winter
When the snow appears.

Back to school & Halloween
Traditions of the fall,
Pumpkins on the sidewalk
Shopping at the mall.

Time to take a little pause
As the seasons changing,
Knowing this is God's own plan
He's the master of arranging!

A Note to All of You:
Each day we are trying to do our best to recover from my
Daddy's sudden death. It still doesn't make any sense to me
However, There is no undoing what has been done. He was taken
For reasons, beyond my comprehension. For those of you who continue
to love and support all of us we thank you. Nothing in life prepares
you for this type of loss.
