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...
4/1 It is April Fool's Day today, Mollie. April has arrived, time to take off our March words. We did have some April showers (snow showers) today. I agree with Cheryl--Old Man Winter does have us on a roller coaster. The weather people are predicting another snow storm system to come in on Thursday night, we were all hoping for much warmer temperatures and more snow melting. Oh well, Bean, at least we know the snow will not last long (hopefully).
Dad just left for work and your Girl is staring at me with her ball in her mouth. She is like the energizer bunny when it come to playing with her ball; you had your rope and frisbie--she has her ball. She has been helping Dad study this week--I really use the word 'helping' very loosely as he gets lots of interruptions.
There is not a lot to share, Mollie, I am hoping your Big Brother calls me so we can get Dad's birthday present ordered. We have decided to get him a mat to sleep on when he and Erik are camping. I am planning a little celebration on Friday--just something to let him know I love him. I am just inviting the family over for supper. I am not sure yet what I will have.
I hope you have a wonderful day playing in the beautiful weather. Stop for a moment and smell the flowers that were just watered. I love you, my Mollie, to the end of the rainbow and back. Mom
4/2 Good night, Bean, time for bed. I love you, Mollie Bean!!! I love you and could not go to bed without visiting my Girls. Sweet dreams, my Little Girl. I will love you forever and one more day. Mom
4/3 Good night, Mollie Bean. It was Dad's birthday today--he is 64 years young!!! One more year, Moll, and he is going to retire. I wish he would do it sooner, but he has a plan and he is sticking to it. Tomorrow night the family is coming over for dinner--I am just making spaghetti. I wanted to do something special for him--he is such a good guy, isn't he?
Well, Bean, as you know we are having an April snow storm--the prediction is anywhere from 6"-14" by the time it is all over. I am thinking we will probably only get about 6" which is more than enough for me. It looks like a blizzard outside right now. The snow is coming down and it is very windy. Dad took the truck to work so he should make it home safely. This winter is hanging on just like last winter did. We really didn't have much of a spring last year. I am just looking forward to June--I don't remember ever having snow in June. We have had snow in May before so I am going right to June. That works, doesn't it?
Cinderella and I cleaned the house tonight. I just have to finish in Dad's shower tomorrow. Jordan is coming over for a play date on Saturday. Dad will be at his class all day and I thought it would be fun to have my best boy friend over. Next week Sarah is starting her new job and I will be picking J. up from school everyday. It is a lot of fun to watch him come out of the school with a big smile on his face. He actually didn't go today because he wasn't feeling well--a sore throat again. Sarah took him to the Dr.s' but the strep test came back negative, which is good. I don't like it when he doesn't feel good. I think I will make him some chicken noodle soup for dinner tomorrow night.
So, Missy Bean, your Gal and I are ready for bed. Snuggle with your little friends and I will hold you so tightly in my heart tonight as we sleep. I love you more than there are snow flakes falling. You are my Special Angel. Mom
4/4 Good night, my Mollie, my very sweetest girl. I love you. It has been another IMMF and this morning it was hard. I can't stop the tears when they start to fall--lots of roses, Mollie, lots of roses...
We had a good time tonight, everyone came for dinner and it was so nice. I think everyone had a good time. Spence is getting so big--he is a little person now and so very cute. Our little Jordan has an ear infection but we are still having our play date tomorrow. We will do whatever he feels like doing. Tonight he just sat on my lap and played a game. I hoping the medication will have started to work and he will be feeling better. He is coming over after karate. Sarah Lyn was in a car accident last night; she was not hurt but her car is in bad shape. She is really stressed--she starts her new job on Monday and now this. I can't even imagine why she was on the road last night during the worst of the storm, what was she thinking? I can't even lend her my car because Dad will be driving it to Bloomington next week. If Dad didn't have school Sarah could take my car, I could drive the truck to work, Dad could drop me off at Chrissy on his way to work and I could walk to J.'s school to pick him up. I know we will figure something out by Monday, I just don't know what yet.
Oh, my Mollie, I love you so much. I can't believe you are not here with me; Fridays are so hard, aren't they? I will hold you in the arms of my heart tonight as we sleep. You are my Special Angel and I know you and the Littles watch over your families and help to keep us all safe. Sweet dreams my little Angels, I love you all. Mom
4/5-6 Hi Missy Bean. It was a very busy weekend. Dad started his classes on Saturday. I think he is really enjoying them and learning a lot. Jordan spent Saturday with me and guess what?!? He even did a sleep over all by himself. That is something he hasn't done in years. He usually will only stay if Chris or Sarah spend the night. We stayed up until 11:30 pm (pretty late for your Mom). We played, read, watched t.v., rode his scooters and had a great time. We also ate a lot of pancakes because he is the self proclaimed 'Pancake Master'. He invited his Mom and Mema over for breakfast this morning. He is such a sweet heart. Tomorrow is Sarah's first day at her new job. I will be picking him up everyday again except Fridays.
I went to my Bible study tonight--didn't make it to church this morning because J. had breakfast guests. Our temperature was in the 60's today. I heard we may reach 70 on Wednesday. Doesn't that sound wonderful, Moll? The snow from, hopefully, our last snow storm is melted, but we still have big snow banks in the yard. Those too shall go fast if we get warmer days.
Tomorrow is your 30 month anniversary. I put you on the Candle light service, too. It is so hard to believe you have been gone for 2 1/2 years. I miss you, my Mollie. You are the last thing on my mind when I fall asleep and the first thing I think about in the morning. You are such a special Angel. Watch for balloons tomorrow, they will be coming you way--one for each of you. I love you, Mollie, for always and forever. Mom
4/7 Well, Mollie, it has been 2 1/2 years since you made your journey to Rainbow Bridge. Some things have changed--Mollie's Hope is here with us now--but some things never change... how much I love you, how much I miss you and how much my heart still hurts. You will always hold a piece of my heart... it belongs to you... to us. One sweet day you will run up to me and give it back to me and on that day it will be made whole again. There are not enough balloons in the world to hold all the love I want to send to you, but I filled each on with my love and a kiss before I sent them on their way to you and the Littles--one for each of you.
Dad just got home from school and I am going to run to Suellen's for an hour tonight. He has homework so he is okay with having me gone for awhile. He is having a fit about the drivers down in the cities--you know how your Dad can rant about 'stupid' drivers.
Sweet Girl, I have to go. You are on the candle light service tonight--I am going to try to get home in time to go online. I love you, Mollie, for always and forever. Mom
4/8 Good night, Miss Moll, I am not feeling well and am going to bed early. Dad is studying and your Girl is trying to force him to play with her. I will be back tomorrow for a longer visit. I love you, my Morning Star. Mom
4/9 Goodnight, Miss Mollie, another day is coming to an end. We finally made it to 70 degrees today. Dad said it was actually 74, can you believe it? The warmest day we have had in 6 months and we are so happy that we are not talking about the snow that is suppose to come this weekend--even if it does, it won't last.
I just got back from church. Dad did not want to go. He will go with me on Good Friday and Easter Sunday. I don't mind going by myself. I met some ladies tonight and that was nice. I think the hardest thing about attending a new church is leaving behind all of my friends from Cross of Hope, but, change is good, Moll, even if it is sometimes difficult.
J. and I played outside in his backyard after school today. He was swinging and chatting away. Tomorrow I have to take him to karate class--his Mom will meet us there. He is such a good boy and I love him so much.
Dad's birthday gift came today--as you know, we got him a self-inflating air mattress for his and Erik's camping trips. After all, he is getting old and laying on the ground is uncomfortable for an 'old guy'. He was very happy with it.
So, my very Sweet Girl, I love you so much and miss you like crazy. I hold you in my heart and you are always just a thought away. Snuggle with your little friends and look for my love in the glow of the moon. Love you, Bean. Mom
4/10 Good night, Mollie, time for you and the Littles to find your soft cloud and snuggle close together. My love will cover you like a warm quilt. I will look up and find you shining brightly in the night sky.
Jordan had karate tonight--he got his 4th stripe and will test next Thursday for his new belt. He is very happy about that. I think he is finally starting to feel better; the antibiotic must be taking care of his ear infection. He is so happy when he comes out of school--a big smile on his face and a bounce in his step. I sure do enjoy being with him. Chrissy had good news today. She went to the Oncologist for her 3 month check up and every thing looks good. I am so grateful that things turned out good. We love our little Sissies, don't we, Moll?
Well Baby Girl, I am going to get my things ready for tomorrow. I work until 10:30, Hope and Piper have grooming appointments I have to take them to and I have to pick J. up from school. It will be a busy day, but I know I will find time to think of you and send you my love.
Sweet dream, Mollie Bean. I love you to the moon and back. Mom
4/11 It is another IMMF and today is made even worse because I don't feel well. It was a busy day and J. stayed with us until 7:00pm. I don't like telling him I don't want to play because I am sick but I had to do that today. He played outside on his scooter while I sat in a chair and watched him. He is such a good little man.
Well, my Mollie, I am going to turn in and I know I will feel better tomorrow. I love you and will hold you tightly in my heart tonight. Mom
4/12-13 Good morning, Mollie Bean. I am here just after church for our visit. We are going to be going to Pet Smart to get your Girl some canned dog food and try to find a new ball. For some reason hers deflated--it is her very favorite toy--and we are looking for a new one. So far we have not been able to find one that works for her. We will keep looking.
I have my Bible study this afternoon. Dad and I were both studying earlier./
Yesterday, Chris and Dad went to Direct Buy to pick up J.'s new stool. J. stayed with me and we went to the new Wal Mart. J. wanted to look at the Skylanders. I got him two for his Easter gift from Dad and me.
Well, Baby Girl, Dad is ready to leave for the store. You have a wonderful Sunday with the Littles. I love you more than there are grains of sand. You are my special Angel and I will love you forever. Mom
4/14 Hi Bean, I just got home from picking J. up from school. Tomorrow, Sarah is going to leave work a few minutes early and pick him up after his Mad Science class. That's nice. He does not have school on Friday--he has off for Good Friday. I sure do love that little Guy, although I think he might be tricking me. He doesn't want to do his homework because he want Chrissy to help him and me to play with him. That is fine with me. He is such a smart Boy--Dad can not believe how well he reads already.
Your Girl got her new ball--actually we found 2 of the same kind and got both of them. She was not sure about them at first but now she is playing with them. We are going to put her old one away as a keepsake--just like your frisbee.
That is all the news I have today. You enjoy the rest of you day and know you will be the last thing I think about before I go to sleep. I love you, Mollie Bean Hurst, for always and forever. Mom
4/15 Tax day today, Moll--April 15th. Already this month is half over. Only 3 weeks before Linda and I go to visit your brother and Megan. We can hardly wait!!! While I am gone, I will visit you on my phone; I don't think I will be able to put words on your page but I will write in my journal every day.
I am having a bad flare up of my neuropathy these past few days and have been miserable. I suppose I will have to go for a vitamin B12 shot if it doesn't improve. It is heck to get old, isn't it, Moll?
Well, Sweet Girl, I saw you hanging out with the moon this morning on my way to work. I look in the morning sky and there you are right next to the full moon, watching over those you love. You are the best of the best, Bean, and I will love you for always and forever. Sweet dreams, my Mollie. Mom
4/16 Hi, Moll, I changed your flowers and song--we are having yet another 'snow event' today and tomorrow. When is it going to end? and I thought we needed sunflowers and sunshine. What do you think? It is just crazy here--it seems all we talk about is the weather--winter goes on and on and on... It is back to wearing winter coats and boots.
Dad is taking the day off to attend another class and I have a hair appointment before I pick J. up from school. I just got done doing more wall preparation in Dad's bathroom. I hope to start painting on Saturday. I am going to take my time; I am not taking down the border and have some intricate painting to do. Remember when we painted the sun porch--you were right there with us, weren't you? wearing paint and trying so hard to get close to us when we were on the ladder. Gosh, I miss you, Mollie. During things always stirs up memories of our time together. Your Girl is helper, too--she want to be played with the whole time we are doing things. She can be as persistent as you were when you wanted us to throw your frisbee. One difference is--she does not bring her toys to us--she drops them where ever she wants and expects us to fetch them. She is a cute little rascal. I wish I knew where to take her to get a better grooming--Megan just doesn't cut it the way we like it. She tries, but of course she is not our Julie. I'll bet you, Maddie and Riley have wonderful 'dos, don't you? Julie was such a good friend, I sure do miss her and not just because of Hope's hair cuts.
You have a wonderful day, Bean. I am going to get lunch ready for Dad before I have to leave for my hair appointment. I love you, my Sweetest Girl--my Sunshine--will forever and for always. Mom
4/18 Hi, my Mollie, it is another IMMF and I think Cheryl is having and IMTF as well. Anniversaries are always the hardest, aren't they? I know they are for me.
Well, Bean, we did have a sprinter snow event on Wednesday and Thursday. We had about 10"-12" at our house and more to the north of us. Our snow banks have returned in all their white glory although it is suppose to rain tomorrow and be in the 60's on Sunday so they won't stay long. I don't know when this winter is going to end, I just know it will one day--hopefully the winter of 2013-2014 won't run into the winter of 2014-2015, that would be a bit much, don't you think.
Dad and I got all the paint we will need to do our bedroom and Dad's bathroom today. We are planning to start painting tomorrow. We are starting in the bathroom.
Tonight we have Good Friday services at church, Dad has decided not to go with me. It really is more my thing than his and he will go on Sunday morning with me to the Easter sunrise service. I think if I were going to Cross of Hope he'd go. He knows people there and is more comfortable with the familiar. I just like where I go now a lot better. Tomorrow night is an Easter vigil service, too, that I think I will go to. I have never been to one and want to see what it is like.
Dad is out for a walk right now and your Girl is sitting at the front door whining because he didn't take her. She loves to walk as much as you didn't like to walk. Oh, my two little Yorkies, how I love you both.
Well, Sweet Girl, you have a wonderful day with Maddie, Tiffy, J.J., Riley, Chloe, Panda and Emmitt. I love you to the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and back (oh, wait, you are the pot of gold). Mom
4/19 Good night, Baby Girl, tomorrow is Easter Sunday--a day for celebration!!! Dad and I are going to sunrise service at Spirit of Christ. I just got home from the Easter vigil service. It was really good. I made my breakfast casseroles for tomorrow's brunch at Uncle Mark's before I left for church. I am changing your music and flowers to celebrate Christ's resurrection tomorrow.
Guess what!?! Cheryl called today for a chat but I was working in the bathroom and Dad was on the phone talking to Aunt Karen and Uncle Orin so I missed her call. I will try tomorrow evening to get a hold of her. I am so glad she called I think of her every single day. We are so blessed, Mollie, so very blessed, aren't we?
Well, Sweet Girl, your Mom is very tired for whatever reason so I will say 'Good night' to you and the Littles. I love you, Mollie Bean, for always and forever. Mom
4/20 Happy Easter, my Sweet Mollie, I know we will be together one glorious day because... He is Risen!!! He is Risen, indeed!!!
We had a gorgeous day--the weather was perfect and the sun was out in all of its glory. Dad and I went to church this morning, I went over to Chrissy's afterwards and went with her,Kevin and J. to their church service. Both of the worship services were very nice.
We had brunch at Mark and Pam's--it was excellent!!! We took Hope for a walk and then sat out on the deck talking for a couple of hours. It was a wonderful day. I hope you and the Littles had a great Easter, too. Did you visit Greatie and Grandpa? I am sure they were happy to have lots of puppy kisses.
Well, Sweet Mollie, when it is time find your soft cloud and snuggle with the Littles. I love you to the moon beams and back. Mom
4/21 Hi Bean, I am taking a few minutes to visit with you before J. and I start playing video games. He didn't have school today and has been to 2 parks, on a bike ride, played games with Dad and been a busy little man. Right now he is watching t.v.--Monster's Inc. is on. He is very sad today because his little hamster, Ninja, has made her way to Rainbow Bridge. Papa made a little box for her and J. and your Dad made a cross for her grave. I brought home balloons for him to send to Rainbow Bridge. He kissed them and let them go. Once the paint on the cross dries he is going to write her name on it.
I have my Monday night meeting this evening. On Tuesday after I get home from picking J. up I am calling Cheryl. Hopefully, she will have time to chat and we can catch up on things.
Well, my Girl, you and the Littles tell Ninja 'Hi' and welcome her to Rainbow Bridge, okay? I love you, Mollie, for always and forever and I am waiting for that glorious day. Mom
4/22 Good night, Bean, I am stopping by for a quick visit before I take my bath and get ready for work tomorrow. Everything here is fine, I just am so very tired. It was a big weekend, I guess, and I think the older I get the more quickly I get tired. There are some days I wish I were as young as Jordan--he has limitless energy. When it is time find your soft cloud and snuggle with the Littles. I love you, Mollie Bean, for always and forever. Mom
