Little Girl

My Sweet Ireland,

It’s been almost 3 months since I had to say goodbye to you. I want you to know that I love you very much, and that I miss you everyday, all day.  You are always so close to my thoughts and I hope that you’re having a good time with Jesus, I know that he must be a fun guy to hang around.  Has he introduced you to Noah?  I bet he has, What did you think of the giraffes?  God must have a really good sense of humor to make an animal as silly looking as a giraffe.  Which animal  is your favorite? I will have to remember to ask you!   What about Moses?  Have you heard his story?  I read in the Bible that Moses stuttered and that he was really afraid of God at first. I guess God talked to Moses  through a burning bush! I think I would be afraid too.  I bet you have heard some great stories from the people that are in heaven.  Which story is your favorite?

I just was thinking of you alot today.  Today we did a March of Dimes fundraiser and walk in your memory, and it was fun.   But it was so hard, it made me wish that I was holding you while we were walking. Alot of our friends came to walk with us, and send some love up to you today. Even some of the people from my job at Kmart came to walk with us too, and guess what? Between Kmart and your incredible family we raised almost $7000 dollars in your memory. Isn’t that great? We did it because we love you so much, and because I want to make sure that no other mama has to say goodbye before she gets to say hello.  I hope you’re proud of us Ireland, I think we did a good job. If it weren’t for you we wouldn’t have raised the money and helped this great cause.

 Right about now,  we should be getting ready to bring you home to our house, and it makes me really sad that I don’t get to do that.  But I am doing ok, so is your daddy, we are being strong and trusting in Jesus that he will heal our hearts.  Some days are really hard, and I feel really empty inside, like someone took my heart out and broke it into a million pieces. But other days I do ok, I still miss you but I don’t feel so broken and raw.  Mostly I am hopeful, because I know that each day that passes brings me one day closer to heaven and to you.  I can’t wait to meet you again.  I bet you are even more beautiful in heaven than you were here. And you little girl were a beauty (maybe that’s just my mama pride talking.)

I should go now, I need to go and tuck your brothers into bed, we pray for you every night, we pray that God is keeping you safe and warm and that you are having a great time playing with the angels.  You my girl are a treasure and I love you so much.

Sleep tight in Jesus’ arms.
