The oil is your heart and soul to light The wick in your eyes burning bright The spirit shines from your lighted wick The light, not the lantern, does the trick. DSH
Priorities I'm free to be me and like it or not I'm boss of myself whether I have a boss or not And when my life's all said and done I hope my family will know the one they call "wife" and "mom" loved them more than all the rest. I hope they'll know I gave them my very best. At work or church there are others that might do just as well but nobody else my stories can tell No one else sings with my voice lullabies or holds them close to look at them with my eyes No one else can be me for them Though they have a new wife, a new mother, or new friends.

God made me free to be me from my own unique face to my taking up this space. It's true, another could take my job or my spot but be another me? Of course not! Irreplaceable is what I am. I'm one of a kind and so like a snowflake, I have a beauty all my own. Though I may quit or fail or die, no other you can take my I.
And so, I’d better do my best to be
all the best I have in me.
