Get Rid Of The Advertisements

My Favorite Vacation
 
A few years ago my family had planed a wonderful vacation
Smokey mountains,Gatlinburg Tennessee, was our destination
For us to all go there together,Was my husbands big dream
Gatlinburg ,The two of our granddaughters had never seen
The other granddaughters had been there many times before
He always told Kim and Katie he`d take them on a big tour
The beautiful smoky mountains and also to see the live bear
Let them ride all the kiddie rides, there`s so much to do there
Take them to Ripley's believe it or not,There`s many places to go
We`d go to the music shows, the comedy club and the magic show

My son had booked all the hotel rooms a few months in advance
Suddenly my husband passed away, He never had a chance
To make this dream come true, He wanted us to promise to go
There was no way , we could go right then, Not with this blow
But we kept it in our plans for a later date,Because he had asked
Us all to promise him we`d still go, This was right before he passed
Thats what he had wanted, This was his big dream for many years
He wanted us to have the family vacation together,A good time, No tears
My daughter had a heart attack and heart surgery,six weeks after he died
Then my son had major heart surgery,I had felt as if to him we had lied

The way things were going,It just was`nt working out for us to go just then
And with answer`s to many prayers, two years later we planned it all again
This time we were able to go, And the children had a fantastic time there to
We all had a wonderful time, but had thoughts of him with everything we`d do
It was as if he was there, A few times I felt that I could feel his presence near
I tried to hide it ,but a few times I know my family would catch me with a tear
We felt so good in our hearts, Knowing why we went, that we had done this
For us yes , But most of all for Bob We knew we had granted his dying wish
Some people may think, it was`nt right for us to go without him being there
But it was my favorite vacation, I prayed about it, God answered my prayer

As I had prayed and prayed that if it was right then, We could make it be
A wonderful much needed vacation, A time of togetherness for our family
It was kinda hard,Yet we all made ourself enjoy the days that we were there
I was happy knowing from Heaven ,That happiness Bob could also share
The happiness the smiles and the excitement in the grandchildrens eyes
I felt relieved, and at times,I could almost see him smiling through the skies
He wanted all the grandchildren to have a wonderful time, to see this place
I know in my heart that , My favorite vacation put a smile upon Bob`s face
If I would have been able to take a vacation to Hawaii or maybe even Paris
It sure would have been nice but it would`nt have meant as much to any of us
