Diving Azul – The Blue Coast by Vicki Hansen (c) 2014

1 (5)

Excerpts from the book ~Diving Azul – The Blue Coast by Vicki Hansen (c) 2014

The night of Kevin’s accident was a very stormy night.  After Loni returned from the hospital, she heard what she thought was a kitten crying, but when she opened the door, she found this cute little puppy shivering on her porch.  So she took him in.

Did Loni rescue Shasta, or the other way around?

~~~~~~~~~

Loni Colbe is too young to say goodbye to her husband, but Kevin has been in a coma for five years. All hope of him waking is gone, and Loni knows the time has come to stop his life support. After his death, she is left wondering if she will ever move on with her life — if she will ever stop feeling the pain of his loss.A year later, she attends her ten-year high school reunion, where she runs into an old friend named Nicholas Hart. She shares her pain with him, as well as details surrounding a scuba trip she and Kevin had planned to take together. With Nick’s prodding, Loni decides to take the trip without Kevin — and with the company of Nick and a few other friends.Despite the loss of her husband, Loni feels alive under the water of the beautiful La Costa Azul of Mexico. She also feels alive with Nick, but she is hesitant to move on with her life. She’s afraid of falling in love for fear of getting hurt again. Will Loni give herself another chance at happiness, or will her feeling of abandonment drown her in blue?

______________________

Loni explained the predicament she found herself in regarding her and Kevin’s vacation.  If she didn’t go, she’d waste a lot of money.  But, it was a scuba diving trip and she never finished her training.  And then there was the question of whether she should even consider it at all because it was for her and Kevin.

Loni lowered her voice and confessed, “I couldn’t sell the tickets, even when he was in the hospital.  That would mean that I didn’t believe that Kevin would come back.”

Nick thought for awhile on the other end of the phone, then said, “I understand.  Well, you could put an ad in the newspaper and try to sell the tickets.  Where were you going?”

“We were supposed to go to Mexico, the Blue Coast — La Costa Azul in Spanish.” Loni said trying to use a Mexican accent.

“Wow!” replied Nick.  “I have always wanted to dive there.  How much are you going to be out if you can’t sell the tickets?”

It was several thousand dollars, at least.  Nick was quiet on the other end of the phone.  He was thinking . . . . .  “She’s already got the tickets, everything’s already been paid for,” he thought out loud.  “Why don’t I pay you for half the trip, and let’s go together?”

“What?”  Loni questioned surprisingly.  “You’re not serious, are you?”

“Why not?” Nick questioned.

EASTER UP IN HEAVEN

Easter Up In Heaven

 

Easter up in Heaven,

A very special time.

All the angels gather

On this wonderful day sublime.

Jesus Christ has risen,

Up to Heaven above.

All the angels singing

About God’s endless love.

MOTHER’S DAY BLUES

moms day 1

MOTHER’S DAY BLUES

 

On this special Mother’s Day Sunday,

I find myself in quite a quandary.

Am I still a Mother if my child is not here?

There’s no one to give me roses this year.

 

My child is in Heaven so,

I won’t be able to see him.

He won’t be driving over here,

To share this special season.

 

If you’re a Mother who has lost a child.

You understand the emptiness inside.

Even if there’s other children there,

It doesn’t replace the one that’s not here!

 

So, on this Special Day for Mothers.

Please think about all the others,

Who have an Angel in Heaven above.

Who won’t be getting any Mother’s Day love.

 

For they are Mothers of Angels in Heaven,

And holidays are harder than ever.

It’s so hard to get through Mother’s Day Sunday,

When you child’s in Heaven, and they won’t be home today!

MY MOTHER LIVES IN HEAVEN

happy mothers day in heaven

MY MOTHER LIVES IN HEAVEN

My Mother Lives in Heaven

Where she’s busy every day,

Setting up our house for us

In a very special way.

She knows just how we like it

And all the things we love.

One day we will live there too,

In our Heavenly Mansion above.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY, ANGEL

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Angel

With you, I’d like to be.

We could celebrate together,

Wearing all of green.

☆ ♥ ☆ ♥ ☆ ♥ *✣*

We’d toast to Old St. Patrick,

For everything he was.

March 17, his Angel Day,

We remember him with love.

ST. PATTY’S DAY IN HEAVEN

 

St. Patty’s Day in Heaven

Comes only once a year.

All the Angels gather

To spread some Irish cheer.

✲══════✲══════✲

Shamrocks grow in fields of green,

Irish blessings abound.

Shamrocks with their leaves of three,

Cover all the ground.

✲══════✲══════✲

Even the streams and rivers,

Up in the Heavens above,

Are turned a special shade of green,

To share this Irish love.

ST. PATRICK’S DAY IN HEAVEN

ST. PATRICK’S DAY IN HEAVEN

St. Patrick’s Day in Heaven,

Is something you should see.

For only one day, all the Angels,

Wear special robes of green.

════ * *════

All the Heavenly flowers,

Trees and plants alike,

Turn an Irish shade of green

As if it were overnight.

════ * *════

It’s just one day in Heaven,

When everything is green.

Spreading Irish blessings

To everyone they see.

DON’T MAKE YOUR ANGEL BLUE

194-vi_val

DON’T MAKE YOUR ANGEL BLUE

Your Angel up in Heaven,

Is always around you.

I know you’ve heard this saying,

But I’m telling you it’s true.

☆ ♥ ☆ ♥ ☆ ♥ ☆ ♥ ☆ ♥ ☆ ♥

It frustrates them entirely,

When you say your Angel’s gone.

Because they’re always by your side,

And have been all along.

☆ ♥ ☆ ♥ ☆ ♥ ☆ ♥ ☆ ♥ ☆ ♥

So, try to be aware of it,

And no matter what you do,

Don’t say your Angel’s gone away,

Don’t make your Angel blue.
