Heaven welcomed a new angel yesterday, one that was expected. My sweet nephew Paulie, born 42 years ago with Down Syndrome, is suffering no more, breathing the sweet air of heaven, and released from his earthly body that required an oxygen tether for the past few months. He told his family in the wee hours of the morning that "Unka Mickey is here. I saw him. He said everything's gonna be OK." And it was. I'm sure Unka Mickey and Grandmother were vying for first position in the welcoming committee!
I can smile at that thought, but get sad in my selfishness in wanting more hugs and kisses from this loving guy. He was truly special.
Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save *stuff* for a special occasion. Today is special. Celebrate life!
