One Moment More

Okay, so I'm a complete dork. I don't have a memory at. all. anymore. Just ask around...everyone will agree. I totally forgot about the cool weekend I had when I wrote my post yesterday. Anyway, a week ago Saturday, Carleigh participated in one of the high school drill team's dance clinics. The girls got to perform in the drill team's spring show, which was this past Friday and Saturday night. Carleigh's age group danced on Friday night. I would show you the video, but my camera was set on snap shots instead of video, and all I got were a couple of photos. UGH! Also, one of the girls who has been baby sitting for us since she was a freshman was dancing her senior solo routine as colonel of the drill team, which she dedicated to Emma. She asked us to be there. I wouldn't have missed it for the world. So, Friday night I went, and my parents and Kelvin's mom and grandmother went too. It was a good show. Of course, Carleigh was adorable, but after intermission I noticed our sitter wasn't performing. I received a text from her sister saying she began having crippling leg cramps and was hoping to dance her solo for Emma at the end but didn't know. Well, she couldn't walk very well, so dancing wasn't too much of an option. I was disappointed but completely understood. I had plans the next evening but encouraged her to please let me know if she was going to dance and I would be there. So, I got word Saturday evening on my way to my wonderful MOPS progressive dinner that our sweet Jamie would be dancing. I made the first two courses of dinner, then skipped dessert (I'm sure my rear end appreciates the sacrifice) and headed for the second half of the show. I'm so glad I did...

Thank You, Jamie! WE love you! I know Emma loved you too. You are precious!

"One Moment More"

Hold me
Even though I know you're leaving
And show me
All the reasons you would stay
It's just enough to feel your breath on mine
To warm my soul and ease my mind
You've got to hold me and show me now

Give me
Just one part of you to cling to
And keep me
Everywhere you are
It's just enough to steal my heart and run
And fade out with the falling sun

Oh, please don't go
Let me have you just one moment more
Oh, all I need
All I want is just one moment more
You've got to hold me and keep me

Tell me that someday you'll be returning
And maybe
Maybe I'll believe
It's just enough to see a shooting star
To know you're never really far
It's just enough to see a shooting star
To know you're never really gone

Oh, please don't go
Let me have you just one moment more
Oh, all I need
All I want is just one moment more

Oh, please don't go
Let me have you just one moment more
Oh, all I need
All I want is just one moment more
You've got to hold me and maybe I'll believe

So hold me
Even though I know you're leaving
