The Penny Birthday Balloon Release...........

Message of Love

I may feel small with this task at hand
The balloon with its message thought

I have great distance to cover and love to bring
To the special angel it sought

Through the clouds this balloon will climb
With its humble message in tow

Only to see the many colors of friends
That also started their trek from below

The colors of red, yellow and green paint the sky
Each carrying a note of love

They float into the arms of an angel
With the softness of a feather from a dove

A tear gently caresses her cheek
And a smile with sunlight falls to us

Be happy our loving friend and know this
No matter the distance we are blessed...

Many members of our group released balloons to the heavens with attached notes to our PFATT sister Penny McAllister and other loved ones who have passed on. Yesterday was Penny's birthday and we wanted to do something special for her. Two years ago, several of us celebrated her birthday early with her during our PFATT Fest held in Lafayette, California. We bought her a cake and surprised her with it on our last night together. That was a very special night and one that none of us will ever forget. ♥

Below are all the pics that were taken yesterday. So felt so good to let those balloons go sailing up into the sky. We know she was looking down at us all and smiling. There were so many signs of her around us that day.......Happy Birthday Penny!! ♥
