Inspiration taken from a picture from Katrina Disaster of Elder Lady Praying
With my hands closed in grace
And hold the smile upon my face,
Realize that I am praying
To somewhat a degree, for me,
And, yet, for so much more.
I am safe in where I feel and am,
My life, my hard times before
My face expresses so much more,
Therefore, I pray for what the
Others have in store~Ahead of them
It is to them, Hell right now,
Sadly, in their eyes, heaven offers nothing more.
Give them the strength to ask for more
Give them the opportunity to explore
Help them with life to restore
Hopes of future and life before
This horrible and utter tragedy.
Help their hands close in grace
Place smiles upon their face
As there is more.

|"And there is more" Yes, there is always hope for a brighter future. Katie, you have written beautiful, loving and caring words of hope for so many peoplem not just the disaster victims.
This is you...a great writer...yet it's your mother too. You have the same insight, the same caring heart, the same compassion for others as she did in her writing. Yes, it's your words but it's also her words. I mean that as a compliment, not that you and your mother are one in the same or living in her shadow.
Maybe some day you will be rich and famous. But even if the fame doesn't happen, you are rich with love for others, compassion for others and insight to their pain. You are rich because you share with others your beautiful words to enrich our every day lives. The movie, "Pass It On" was a perfect example of how we should live for each other. You do it through your words and prayer. What more could anyone ask for. Love, Paula
