Joy of Giving - Card 2 - Week 2 - Rekha Baala

My friend and childhood buddy Rekha has written about her granny for the second card of the Joy of Giving. Read it here.

She has also written two extremely poignant letters to her deceased parents. But they are very emotional and she doesn't want to share them publicly.

I respect her wish and after reading them, and re-reading them several times since last evening, can only quote the following from the song, The Walk by Sawyer Brown :

Down our long dusty driveway
I didn't wan't to go
But I set out with tears in my eyes wonderin`
Daddy took me by the hand
Looked down at the school bus and his little man and said,
"Don't worry boy it will be all right"

Cause I took this walk your walking now
Boy, I've been in your shoes
You can't hold back the hands of time
It's just something you've got to do
So dry eyes I understand just what you're goin` through
Cause I took this same walk with my old man
Boy, I've been in your shoes....

Down our long dusty driveway
I set my mind to go
cuz` I was eighteen and wild and free and wonderin`
Daddy took me by the hand
Look out at the world and his grown man and said,
"Don't worry boy it will be all right"

Down our long dusty driveway
This time we both would go
Well he had grown old and gray
and his mind was a wandering
Daddy took me by the hand
Said I know where we're going
and I understand
Don't worry boy it'll be alright
