Memories of Mollie
October 7, 2011... the day my world collided with Heaven... the day God took His miracle named Mollie home with Him... the day my life forever changed...
From the first moment I held you in my arms-- you held my heart...
I met my very best friend that day, who would love me unconditionally, unfailingly... a perfect love.
The Bible says... 'These three things remain... Faith, Hope and Love and the greatest of these is Love...
Without a doubt,Mollie, you are the greatest of these...
Do you remember choosing Momma that day in December?Your sister ran to the back of the pen,but not you.You came right up to me, into my arms and into my heart.I fell in love with you in that moment and everyday you were with us we loved you more that day than the day before.Dad's and my hearts are breaking because you went to the Rainbow Bridge,and only seeing you again will make them whole.When you were diagnosed with the liver shunt at 5 months old and Dr.Ross told us you would probably only be with us from 2-5 years we knew we had to love you perfectly because you might be gone too soon.But you showed everyone and you lived with us for almost 15 years.Of course,Dad and I will always wish we had more.You filled our lives with so much joy and laughter;after all you were a funny little gal.
Do you remember being a tattletale?Sometimes you made your brother,Erik,so mad.Before you,he was an only child and then along came Mollie.He could be ruthless when he teased you but you always came to either Dad or me and let us know what he was up to.I remember the day we had Erik's graduation pictures taken.Dad and I wanted a picture with both of our children;the photographer asked me what was up with the two of you.You wouldn't look at Erik and he refused to let you sit too close.With a lot of patience we did get a great picture of our two kids but neither of you made it easy.Erik nicknamed you 'Stinks' because he said Dad and I spoiled you(which of course we did). For Christmas one year he even gave you doggie perfume to get rid of the spoiled Yorkie smell.The name stuck and you even answered to it.After Tucker A.Byrd came to live with us you and your big brother formed an alliance against poor Tucker that lasted the rest of your life.Erik loves you as much as Dad and I do and misses you so much.
God made you perfectly,Baby Girl,and there will never be another 'You'. Dad,Erik,Margo,and I love you so much. You touched so many lives with your sweet disposition and just being Mollie.We look forward to the day our family will once again be complete and until that day we will have huge a hole in our hearts that only you can fill.We love you,Baby Girl,and miss you every second of every day.
P.S.I know you loved your Aunt Chrissy as much as she loved you.
I thought of you today,but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday,and days before that, too.
I think of you in silence,I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and a picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake,from which I'll never part.
God has you in His arms,I have you in my heart...
Mollie,in order to be able to write every day I take off some of our words placing them in a file I created just for you.The days that are special I will leave on your site.
10/22 Happy 15th Birthday,Mollie Girl!!!
I wish you were here to help us celebrate your birthday today.Just think,Baby Girl,you would have been 15 years old today.You didn't look your age you were always so beautiful.We never dreamed we'd celebrate this day without you;but we did get to have a lot of other special days with you,didn't we?Please celebrate today with all your friends;ask them to help you look for the balloons Dad and I are sending your way.Anna has a lot of experience catching balloons so I am sure she will help if you need her to.We ordered a little cake for you;remember I had told you could have a piece of cake and a scoop of Frosty Paws on your birthday.You are in our thoughts and our hearts on this day our 15 year old little girl.We wish we could say it is getting easier to be here without you,but we're just not there yet.We're still so sad but sharing our memories of you does make us smile,you always brought so much joy into our lives every single day.
Baby Girl,we miss you and would like nothing better than to have you with us again but we know you are in the only place where you can be healthy,happy,and young again.So have a very Happy Birthday,Little Girl.
Love, Mom,Dad and Tucker.Aunt Chris, Uncle Kevin, Sarah and Jordan, Riley and Piper.
10/31 Happy Halloween,Little Wizard.
I know you were never very happy wearing the wizard costume Aunt Chrissy made for you,but you always looked so adorable.Every minute we spent with you was God's treat to us.I love you so much,Baby Girl,Mom
11/24 Happy Thanksgiving, Mollie.
This morning I was thinking of all the blessings in my life and, you, my Mollie, are a blessing.I thank God for you and all the joy and love you gave me.I am thankful you no longer are old,sick and weak;but instead healthy and happy. Your love for me will carry me through the sad days for you are just a precious thought away. You,Miss Mollie,are one of the things I am most grateful for. Thank you Sweet Girl for all the memories,the joy,the love,and the happiness you gave to us.
12/24pm I need you to be with me on this sacred night, my Angel.I will look for you and I will find you in the music,the sermon,at the cemetery,in the stars,and in my heart,where you now live; you will be with me in this silent and holy night.I love you,my Angel.
The entire world should sleep in the peace of Heaven for... tonight a Child has been born unto to us,His Name is Prince of Peace,Wonderful Counselor.Sleep peacefully tonight,Mollie.
12/25 Merry Christmas,Angel,I am sending you every ounce of my love wrapped up in a huge red bow.
I am looking and finding you in the beautiful day just beginning.I see you on the sun that is starting to peak over the horizon. I see you in your brother's face.I see you in your Dad's arms.I see you in Hope.I see all this through my tears as my selfish heart weeps for you;but what I see most clearly is our love for one another and the joy that is YOU!How can I be sad when you make me so happy?Today my Christmas gift to you is I will wipe away my tears and wrap myself in your happiness,love,joy and of course,your hope.I will be happy and celebrate the blessing of Jesus' birth and the blessing that is you.I love you,my Christmas Angel,and will find you every where I look today.
01/01/2012 Happy New Year, Angel.
My prayer for the New Year is for healing and comfort for all who are in pain,grieving,or ill. I love you,Mollie Bean, for always and forever, Mom
4/8 It is because of this day over 2000 years ago I know we will be together again one glorious day; Happy Easter,my Mollie.
5/1 Happy May Day, Mollie,my heart is sending you a May basket filled with beautiful flowers and is watching you run around the May pole,chasing the ribbons.
7/4 Happy 4th of July!!!God bless America and God bless you,Little One.
*10/5 It was 52 Fridays ago that God kept His promise to you that He would only let us have you for a short while.On that Friday He came and took you home with Him to mend your tired little body and make you whole.He has made that promise to all of us and one glorious day,I believe He will come for me,too, Moll,and then our hearts will once again beat as one.Mollie,you were the magic of my ordinary days.
*October 7, 2011, the day our road trip came to an end and we reached your final destination. You continued on a journey without me and I am left to watch the sunsets and weather life's storms without you. Our journey here has come to an end, but our hearts still hold each other and our love becomes us.
*10/22 Mollie,sixteen years ago today,God created a perfect little miracle He filled your heart with unconditional love and you shared your love with Mom and Dad for nearly fifteen wonderful years.Today, we celebrate you,our life together and the love we shared.You made it so easy to love you,Mollie,and so hard to let you go.This is your second birthday we have had to celebrate without you.Special days like today are more difficult because you hold the missing piece to our hearts.We know that one glorious day our hearts will be made whole and we will celebrate all our special days together once again just as we did for so many years.Today,Mollie,is your sixteenth birthday;sixteen purple balloons filled with love and a kiss on each one are making their way to you.If love could have saved you we would be together rejoicing that you are sixteen years old today.
Happy,happy birthday,Sweet Mollie,we love you!!! Mom and Dad
10/31 Happy Halloween, my little Wizard!!! I have put your costume away,I know how much you liked wearing it(not!You were God's treat to Dad and me for your whole life.
11/22 Happy Thanksgiving,my Mollie.We are thankful for the miracle God made on Oct.22,1996;He breathed life into the miracle, named her Mollie and placed her in our arms and in our hearts.We love you,Sweet Girl,for always and forever.Mom and Dad
12/24 pm It is a silent,holy night,Mollie, a night of wonder and joy.I will look to find you in the music,in His Word,and in the bright,calm night.You will be the brightest star shining over us tonight at the cemetery and I will find you where now live...in my heart.You are my Christmas Angel,tonight, tomorrow and forever.Mom
12/25 Merry Christmas,Mollie,the world is rejoicing for unto us a Savior is born and with His birth comes the promise of that one glorious day when we will be together again!!!I am sending you all my love wrapped in a big box and tied with a big red bow.My selfish heart wishes you could have spent this day with us,but I remind myself you are only a thought and memory away.I will look for you in the wonder of this beautiful day that God has made.You are my Christmas Angel today and everyday.Mom

5/27 Memorial Day 2013
Remembering you is easy,
I do it everyday.
Missing you is hardest part,
it never goes away.
I love you!!! Mom
7/4 A day to celebrate love of family, friends and country, Moll. God bless America and God bless you.
***10/4 104 Fridays ago, our world tilted on its axis and came to a heart breaking stop. We received the call we had dreaded... Dr. Bisignano told us it was time... time to let you be free... time to let you find peace... time to let you go....
Loving you was so easy... as natural as taking a breath. Letting you leave... took our breath away.
Love wasn't enough to keep you here... but it was love that gave us the strength to place our Sweet Girl into the loving hands of God... He was the only One who could give you what you needed... rest for you tired, tiny body. Only God could heal you... all we could do was to love you enough to say 'Good Bye'...
***October 7, 2011... the day my world collided with Heaven... the day God took his miracle named Mollie home with him... the day my life forever changed...
From the first moment I held you in my arms-- you held my heart...
I met my very best friend that day, who would love me unconditionally, unfailingly... a perfect love.
The Bible says... 'These three things remain... Faith, Hope and Love and the greatest of these is Love...
Without a doubt, you are the greatest of these...
***Oct.7, 2013 marks the second anniversary of that life changing moment... the moment you went from our arms to His. Loving you was so easy, who couldn't help but love a miracle? Losing you has been so difficult, definitely one of the hardest things I have ever done... the emptiness of living in a world filled only with memories. Not a day has passed that you have not been in my thoughts... I think of you first thing in the morning, you are my last thought at night.... I think of you and smile; I think of you and cry... but I always think of you.
Even after all this time... my heart still hurts. It hurts its way thru each day; selfishly wanting what it cannot have... You... My head tells me you were no longer happy here and needed to be healed, not with my love but with the healing power of God's love. You left your tired, worn out body here and exchanged it for a healthy one in Heaven and knowing that causes my selfish heart to rejoice.
Even though there has been this pain since you left, I would not give up one moment of the 15 years I spent dancing with you on God's great dance floor. You were so tiny but your love for me was bigger than this world and I believe with every fiber of my being it was your love that brought Mollie's Hope into my life. She is my dance partner now, Mollie, and I will cherish each song with her just as I did with you.
I love you, Mollie Bean Hurst, with every breath I take. You hold the missing piece to my heart and I know you will keep it safe until that one glorious day... Mom
10/22 Seventeen years ago today, God created a wonderful miracle and shared it with us for almost fifteen years... You, Mollie Bean Hurst, are that miracle. We have spent every day of these past seventeen years loving you... who could not love a miracle? Our first moment together sealed our bond. You came into our arms and into our hearts the instant we met. We knew you were to be our little girl, our little Mollie. You gifted us with such joy and unconditional love every day we spent together. We always knew that you would bring your magic into our ordinary days... a sweet, precious magic that soothed us, healed us, calmed us and loved us. There is no greater magic or wonder than the love you gave us... the love God gave to our miracle, Mollie, to give to us. Time has lessened the hurt most days, but it has never lessened the love we have for you...
and today... we say 'Happy Birthday, Precious Mollie'!!!
We love you, today, tomorrow and for eternity, Birthday Girl!!! Mom and Dad
10/31 Happy Halloween, my Mollie, I am grateful for the wonderful treat God has given me...You!!! My heart is sad when I think my Little Wizard won't be delivering treats to the neighborhood children. You hated your costume but believe me you were adorable. I can still see you running across our front lawn with your wizard hat falling down on your head and looking like a miniature unicorn. I love you, Bean, and miss you so much.
12/24 It is the Holiest night of all tonight, Mollie... Christmas Eve. Tonight is a sacred and holy night filled with the promise of new life. We celebrate the birth of a Child, the One who will be called Wonderful Counselor, Everlasting God, Prince of Peace... tonight we celebrate Jesus.
On this most sacred night, I will look for you in the music, His Word, the candle light, the stars shining over head, and in the silence of the night. Mollie, you will be with me where you have lived these past two years... in my heart. Our love is alive because of the promise God full filled on this night of wonder.
12/25 Merry Christmas, Mollie!!! I am sending you all my love and tied it with a great big ribbon.
1/1/14 Welcome to 2014, Mollie, a brand new year has begun!!! My prayer for 2014 is we will find Hope, Joy and Love in the One who has blessed us with our family and friends, always remembering He is the center of it all..
2/14 Happy Valentine's Day, Mollie, you are the keeper of my heart...
7/1 Welcome to July, Mollie Bean. Summer is really and truly here--the 4th of July is this Friday. If things go as planned and the roads to the south are not under water we are planning on a trip to Iowa. Dad and I both have the weekend off and thought it would be fun to spend it with our dear friends.
I worked this morning and just got back from picking J. up at the YMCA. He is really enjoying himself--it is a good thing that he is able to go. I still get to spend everyday with him and I treasure each moment. Last night I went to his final soccer game--he played his heart out. I think it was the best game he played even though he didn't score a goal; a lot of his balls came close. Tonight, I thought he looked really tired. He is a busy boy, with soccer, karate, and the going to day camp.
Dad is working 12 hour days this week. He will be very tired by Friday. I can always drive so he can rest in the car if he wants.
I am almost done with my 8 day stretch--only 2 more mornings of getting up at 4:15 am.. I will be glad when it is over. Heather and I are swamped because both Scott and Carin are on vacation this week.
Well, Baby Girl, I made some changes to your site--a new (old) song... 'You are my Sunshine' and sunflowers to celebrate summer. I hope you like it. I love you, Mollie, and I miss you so much. You are truly my sunshine, my star bright, light of my life, magic in my ordinary days, my best friend... my Mollie Bean. Mom
Hi, Miss Mollie, another very beautiful summer day here. I hope it is a lot like the days you are having. I like to think we still share lots of things. I just finished making Caramel Crack--it is like the caramel puff corn you and I used to make. Your Girl is as big of a helper as you were--always looking to see if I dropped a piece... and like you, she is not allowed many treats. I think with all the veggies you were able to eat, your diet was less restrictive than hers is. Her little tummy is easily upset. Dad and I went to Pet Smart today and got Hope some canned food--it was on sale so we stocked up. She is so tiny that we want to be sure she is getting enough to eat. We worry about her just as much as we did you. We just love our Yorkies, don't we, Moll?
I have to leave in about 5 minutes to pick up my boy. He is very adamant about picking him up--not too early, and not too late. He wants it just right, kind of like the 3 Bears. His Mom is working a little later today to make sure she has all her work done before the holiday. It is so nice out I think we will spend times outdoors this afternoon.
You have a wonderful day, my Sweet Girl. Always remember that I will love until that one glorious day when I come to you for the missing piece of my heart and we walk the bridge together (actually, Moll, once I get you in my arms again I am never putting you down so I will carry you over the bridge, okay?) You are my Sweet, Sweet Angel Girl, Mom
7/3 Hi Bean, I just got done booking Dad's flight to Arizona. He is going to be there from Oct. 3-7. He will get to spend Erik's birthday with him. I know they both like that. I just went in to the travel sights and found a really good price, so I booked it after calling Erik and checking on the dates with him. I am happy Dad will get to be with your Big Brother on his birthday.
We are going to leave for Iowa in the morning after Dad gets up, probably not until after 9:30 or so. We will miss the Shell Rock parade but that is okay, we should be in time for the Bonzer picnic. I am sure we will have a good time.
I finished my 8 day stretch and am very glad to be done with it. Heather and I were so busy this week we couldn't even think, but I think we did a good job, in spite of all the computer problems we experienced.
Hope and I took a nap this afternoon--we were both exhausted. I am doing laundry and cleaning the bathrooms. I have to pack a bag for this weekend and get the Nabbits things ready, too. I made Tucker Byrd's food for Sarah Lyn--she is going to check on him while we are gone. I still have to put the radio in his room so he won't be too lonely.
Well, my Baby, we know what tomorrow is, don't we? another one. I will try to write words while I am gone if I can, but I will visit you girls on my phone for sure. I love you, Mollie, for always and forever. Mom
7/4 Happy 4th of July, Mollie Bean!!! Please stop by and see Grandpa--he left for Rainbow Bridge 17 years ago today. I can't even believe my Dad has been gone that long. I miss him and often have dreams about him. Give him lots of puppy kisses for me, okay?
Things down in Iowa are good, I always miss you even more when I am here because you came with us for so many years. It is another IMMF anyways.
Well, Bean, I have to go so much going on here. I love you so much, enjoy the fireworks. God bless you and God bless America. You are my little Firecracker. Mom
7/5 Good morning, Mollie. Did you like the Shell Rock fireworks? Aunt Chrissy said Coon Rapids had a good display, too. I don't know what our plans are for the day, but I am sure we will find something to do. I just wanted to stop by and tell you and the Littles 'Hi' before our day got going. I love you, Mollie, more today than even yesterday and I know I will love you even more tomorrow. Mom
7/6 Good night, Mollie, time for this old lady to go to bed--a new work week starts tomorrow. We had a fantastic visit and the trip home was good, too. Not as much traffic going thru the city as we thought there might be. We are all unpacked and have the laundry ready to wash tomorrow. It is very warm here today--around 90 degrees. This is more like normal July weather than the cool days we had last week.
I must tell you, I am very upset with the Naughty Nabbit. Dad went out on the deck to check his tomato plants and while he was out there, she peed in the porch. I don't know what she is thinking--oh wait, she doesn't think. She is in time out right now and knows I am very angry at her. There is no reason for her bad behavior!!!
Well, my 'Good' Yorkie, it is time to tuck you in and say 'good night'. I love you to the moon and back, Mollie Bean. Mom
7/9 Good night, Mollie, it is time for all good Yorkies and Naughty Nabbits to go to bed. Your Girl has been very busy today. Dad has to work on Friday, but is trying to get Saturday off because we have to go to Kristen's wedding down in Rochester.
Not a lot to tell you about Bean, other than I love you and miss you. I look in the night sky for you when I go to bed. I will hold you in my heart as we sleep. You are the sunshine in my life, Missy Bean. Mom
7/10 Hi Bean, it is Aunt Chrissy's birthday today; I know you, Maddie and Riley are sending her all kinds of birthday kisses from Rainbow Bridge. After karate tonight we are going to Perkins for supper. Chrissy wants to order off the senior's menu. My little sissy is 55 years old today. I pray for her health all the time. I just can't imagine life without my sister in it. Keep your Angel wings wrapped tightly around her, okay?
Dad and I are going to have pizza for lunch today--Dad has a cold and nothing sounds good to him. I always worry about him getting sick when he is on all this overtime.
We are having another Rainbow Bridge type of day--the weather is just about perfect again. We are suppose to have a rainy day tomorrow.
Hope will probably send a text to Bella sometime today--the girls text each other and that keeps Cheryl and me in touch.
Well, my Mollie Bean, tomorrow is another one--IMMF--and soon it will be Tiffy's 3rd anniversary at Rainbow Bridge. The time has gone by so fast and yet it seems like it was just yesterday when Cheryl signed you guest book for the first time and I visited Tiffy. So much has happened over the past 3 years--new friendships, births and deaths, retirement--all kinds of things--both good and bad. And yet the one thing remains is our love for our little girls--that never changes.
You have a good day with the Littles. My love for you is for eternity, Mollie. Mom
7/11 It's another Friday, Moll, and the 'missing you' never goes away, it is just more on Fridays. I worked this morning, Dad was already gone before I got home. He is hoping to get off by 8:30 tonight. Your Girl and I are going to do some laundry and cleaning, you know how she loves to clean. She is such a big help, isn't she?
Not a whole lot going on here today. I did weed the flowers out front right after I got home from work. It was a little bit warm, I was glad we had turned on the air conditioner. Tomorrow we have to go out of town for a wedding. We are not going to stay over night--we have your little Girl and Tucker Byrd.
Keep your Angel wings around Jordan, he has a Dr. appointment today with Dr. Fox about his swollen glands.
Well,my Mollie, you have a good day. I love you even more this Friday than I did on that black Friday in October almost 3 years ago. You are my special Angel and I will always love you. Mom
7/12 Hi Mollie, it is a warm humid day here. We are going to Kristen's wedding. It will be nice to see everyone, seems as though the only time we get together is for weddings and funerals. Today, at least, is a joyful get together.
Next weekend I am going to Iowa to pick up Lucy and Simon--they want to come and stay with Dad and me. We are kind of like the out of state Grandparents. J. is not going to the YMCA day camp Monday and Tuesday so he can spend time with the kids. I am hoping it will be nice out so they can swim. I know Lucy and Simon are excited; Dad and I are too.
Well, Sweet Girl, I have to get a bath and wash my hair. You have a good day, Moll, with the Littles. I love you so much... you put the magic in my ordinary day. Mom
6/14 Good night, Bean, the day is coming to an end. It has been like a fall day, rainy and the temperatures in the high 50's to low 60's. It is suppose to start slowly warming up. Next week they are talking temps in the 90's. We have had a lot of rain but everything is so green--it is just beautiful.
Dad is working days this week for inventory. He has to be to work by 5:00 am, he is not liking that one little bit. He has always been a second shifter, hasn't he?
I didn't work today but work the rest of the week. On Saturday I am meeting Katie and Linda at the Top of Iowa rest stop. Simon and Lucy are coming home with me to spend a few days. I am looking forward to having time with them. J. and I were talking about what we should do while they are here. I think one night we are going to sleep out in J.'s tent. That should be an experience, don't you think? You know how I am about camping, even in my own back yard. But is will be fun, I'm sure.
Not a whole lot is happening around here, my Sweet Girl, just the usual missing you and wishing you were still here by my side. I love you, Mollie, more than then there are raindrops falling. You are my special and Angel, Moll. Mom
7/15-16 Hi Mollie, I tried several times to visit and just couldn't, but I am here now. We have had a very beautiful day--perfect weather--just like you have everyday.
Jordan and Chrissy stayed for supper both last night and tonight. J. likes to spend time with me after I pick him up at the Y and I love my 'Jordan' time, too. Tomorrow night we have karate, we have to hurry so we are not late. The little guy is sometimes slow moving.
I got my hair cut today--it was a much needed. Michelle says hair always grows faster in the summer. Next week your Hope has her groomer's appointment with Mary. Dad and I like how she cut Hope last time. We usually take her every 4 weeks but Mary couldn't work her in less than 5 weeks this time. Hope is in need of a hair cut, too.
Dad goes back on 2nd shift tomorrow--I have like having him home, but I know he is more than ready to get back to nights. He does not like getting up early!!!
Well, Missy Bean, time for this old lady to go to bed (I have a headache that just won't go away). I love you to the moon and back, my sweet Girl. Mom
7/18 Hi Bean, another anniversary at Rainbow Bridge today--Tiffy's 3rd one. Jordan, Hope and I sent off balloons for everyone and 3 pink/red for Tiff. Have fun chasing them, my Girl. Time does march on doesn't it? and the pain lessens sometimes--but the wonderful memories we shared are just a thought away. It seemed appropriate that Tiff's anniversary would be on a Friday--a good day to miss you both and be thankful for the memories and the friendships that resulted because of that black Friday in October. There are always silver linings in the darkest of clouds, isn't there, Moll?
You have a wonderful day, Mollie, and know that I love you and miss you everyday (just more on IMMF's). I love you to the end of the rainbow and back again. You are my pot o' gold, Bean. Mom
7/20 Good morning, Bean. I just got home from church--Simon and Lucy are watching t.v. while we wait for J. to come over. We are going to go the park as soon as Dad gets home from Costco. He was going to take the kids fishing but I didn't leave them the car seat for Simon. He is going to take them tomorrow instead. J. is going to come over and spend the day with the kids. They all want to go swimming in J.'s pool. We have plans to go to the movie 'Planes' and out to eat at Pizza Ranch on Tuesday. It is going to be a busy 3 days. I wish they could have stayed longer but I couldn't get more time off work--there is a big soccer tournament and others in the office want to watch their kids and grand kids play in it. I am meeting Linda on Wednesday down at the MN/IA border.
Well, Baby Girl, I have 3 anxious kids who want to get together. We are going to leave to get J. in a few minutes. I love you, Sweet Girl, will you and the Littles watch over our Littles as they play today. You are my Special Angel and I will always love you. Mom
PS Lucy said to tell you and Anna her Mommie is pregnant and we are going to have a new baby come next March!!!!
7/24 Good morning, Mollie, I am up and ready to go to work. I couldn't sleep and decided not to lay in bed but to get up and get dressed for work. I dropped Simon and Lucy off with Linda in Albert Lee yesterday afternoon. We had a great time. We were busy every minute and I was tired when I got home yesterday afternoon. We slept out in the tent on Sunday night, went shopping, out to eat, lots of swimming, a movie, went to the park, bike riding, fishing, built Legos, and did pedicures--we did lots of things and had a lot of fun. J. stayed over two nights with Luce and Simon, the three of them got a long just great. It is good for Jordan to be around kids his own age. Simon was not ready to leave yesterday when it was time for them to go home.
Baby Girl, you, Maddie and Riley need to wrap your wings around Chrissy. She needs you, okay? She goes to the Dr. next Wednesday so please watch over her.
Mollie's Hope has an appointment to be groomed today. She really needs it--Simon had something sticky on his hands when he held her and she is kind of a mess. I brushed her and washed her off but she does need a bath.
Well, Baby Girl, I best get ready to leave for work. I love you and I miss you so much, Mollie, you could always make me feel better when things got overwhelming like it is now. You hold a piece of my heart and one day I am coming for it, okay? Love you, Angel Girl. Mom
7/27 Hi Mollie, I haven't written in a couple of days but that doesn't mean I have not been thinking about you. I worked the past 3 days and have not been sleeping very well at night--a lot on my mind. Chrissy goes to the oncologist on Wednesday; I have been very worried about her. I lay awake at night praying that things are okay and the cancer has not returned. Like you, Moll, I love my little Sissy so very much and would do anything for her. Please get Maddie, Riley and the other Littles to wrap their Angel wings around her. She needs the best G.A.'s in all of Rainbow Bridge watching out for her.
Dad and I are going to their house later; Dad is going to help Uncle Kevin get his deck footings figured out. They have waited a long time for their deck in the back yard. It will be nice for them, they have the pool and a beautiful yard.
I talked to your big Brother last night, he and Megan were having a game night party at their house. They have such wonderful friends--I was lucky enough to meet some of them when I visited Erik. Erik is taking another class and Megan is studying for her nursing license. Busy kids, aren't they?
Well, Sweet Girl, that is all that is happening around here. Just be sure to keep an Angel watch over Chrissy. I love you, my Mollie, more than there are grains of sand. Mom
7/28 Hi, my Moll, I have to do a few things on the computer and thought I would visit you girls first. Dad is getting ready to leave for work--he and Hope are spending time with Tucker Byrd. We tried to give him a bath, but Pig Byrd would have none of that. He baths when and if he wants to. I misted him a little to get rid of some of the dust on his feathers. Your Girl is so naughty when he is out--almost to the point of uncontrollable--she shrieks and whines like a banshee. She is a very jealous gal.
I am not picking J. up from the Y today--he wanted his Mom to do it. He doesn't get to see much of her during softball season--I don't understand the priorities but...
Dad and I are planning a trip to Stillwater for our anniversary next month--36 years and counting, Moll. I wouldn't trade one of those years for anything; we weathered thru some bad times (like losing you) and have had enormous joy as well and we always love each other more each day.
Chrissy and I are planning to take Jordan to the hotel one Friday this summer. He enjoys it so much. We will only be staying one night, but it is all about him. In October Chris and Kev are taking J. down to Florida--Sarah will already be there for a softball tournament. He is going to get to go to the amusement parks and Sea World. He is so excited. I will be taking care of Piper, Mike and Stella and Sarah's collection of pets. I am glad to do that for Chris, Kevin and J..
Well, Baby Girl, I am going to send an e-mail off to the Pastor of the church I have been attending. I want to set up an appointment with him to talk about some things. Dad is leaving and says 'Hey, Stinks'. We both love you so much and miss you. You are our special Angel and you always made (make) our ordinary days extraordinary. Mom and Dad
7/30 Hi Bean. Well, we don't know too much about Chrissy--the Dr. took a biopsy of the tissue and it won't be back until next week. The waiting is so hard, Moll, but it gives me more days to pray.
I talked to Linda today. They are getting ready to go to the lake. Katie, Sarah Jane and the kids will be here on Friday. They plan to stay over at our house to break up the long trip. Don and Linda are leaving Saturday morning.
I have to work tomorrow and haven't seen Dad at all today. He had an appointment at the VA for an eye exam today and then left for work. I did some weeding in the flower garden and am watering. We have been without rain for several days and every thing is getting dry.
Tomorrow is the last day of July. I can't believe how fast the summer is going. We have had such wonderful weather lately; just about perfect (except we could use some rain).
Your Girl is being her usual Nabbit self, but we love her just the same. I miss you, my Mollie, time has not erased the hurt of you leaving me. I love you and will come for the missing piece of my heart one day soon. You are our Special Angel and I know, you, Maddie, Riley Jo and the Littles are keeping guard over my little Sissy. There are no better G.A.'s at the Rainbow Bridge than you. I will hold you tight in my heart tonight as we sleep, Mollie Bean. Mom
