The Best Gift... Arms of an Angel

I have asked my daughter to sing this song for me for quite a few years... Almost 6 to be exact. When I was diagnosed with cancer and faced with the possibility of death, this was one of the songs that I wanted to be played at my funeral. I love this song. Who better to sing it for me than my daughter? Thank fully I am healthy and still here to enjoy it. I hope you will too.

I would also like to take this moment to pay tribute to someone who I have so much respect and admiration for. Susan Niebur, WhyMommy who blogs at Toddler Planet and started Mothers with Cancer, died 2 months ago. I have had so much trouble adding her to my "mb remembers" list. She was so smart and so young and so accomplished.
I have a quote that reminds me of Susan, but I can't seem to find it. It went something like this..."some stars burn so brightly that they can't burn for too long". She was a shining star, a wife, daughter, friend, Mom, she was an Astrophysicist and worked for NASA. They have even named an asteroid after her... how cool is that?

Susan made on impact on so many people who never even met her in person. I can only imagine the impact and immense grief that the people who did meet her must be going through. I sincerely hope she in the Arms of the Angels...
