The days are going by so quickly, the weeks are passing even faster, turning our time apart into months and it will be almost a year til I see you again.
Thinking this brings tears to my eyes, making me wonder if NY is where I should be.

Your growing up so fast sweet nephew! What an incredible little man you are......

I can't begin to tell you how much I love you and how proud I am to be your aunt! Your mommy is always with you cheering your every move!

Happy Birthday on your day and EVERYDAY after!

You deserve so much young Brett and I will always be here for you no matter what!

Cardinal Love for Lisa too.....

I got this e-mail from our lil sis Lisa today:

"Oh, yesterday evening I was at the park with the children and i saw some athletes training...running, sprinting, dragging tires behind them. There was a coach close by so I asked what they were training for. She said "They are triathletes". I thought of Mary immediately and then a red cardinal landed on the ground about 10 feet from me and was looking at them with me :)"

Divine Cardinal Love - thank you Dad!

Today ~ the Day after Fathers Day ~ I was thinking how lucky I was to have had my dad as long as I did. He was such an incredible man full of peace and love! No judgments, only encouragement to be the best we could be and unconditional LOVE!
I was thinking about this day 9 years ago ~ (the day after Fathers day). I had finally had "ENOUGH"! I asked Chad to help me get help. I don't know what it was that made me finally give in. I will admit - I could be very stubborn in my day. I believe there was some divine intervening. I didn't realize this at the time until my cry for help happened again 3 months later in September- (the day after my dad's death day). My mind became clearer and as I thought about those dates, I realized my dad in Heaven had something to do with my cries for Help!

As I was walking Honey, I was thinking about all of this and mentally speaking to my dad, thanking him for still being with me, guiding me, loving me and never leaving my side! All of a sudden out of the sky a beautiful red cardinal flew to the fence straight ahead. He was only 30 feet away and was looking straight at me. Then he decided to get a little closer and flew to the ground only 10 feet away. I just stood there in amazement, wondering if this was for real. Just as I was thinking and talking to my dad ~ my cardinal appears. All of a sudden, there was chirping all around me. I felt like Angels were up in the trees as the little red bird was on the ground staring up at me.

I was touched and comforted by divine love!

The holes in my heart are mending with each touch I receive!

Purple Roses for you Dad

Purple roses grow in heaven,
Lord pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my daddy's arms
and tell him they're from me.
Tell him that I love him
and always miss his smile.
When he turns, place a kiss upon
his cheek & hold him for awhile,
because remembering him is easy,
I do it every day.
But there's an ache in my heart
that will never go away...

My sisters

Just remembering our wonderful days together as sisters and friends.
I miss those days when my sisters would come visit me in Houston......
I treasure those days and dream of them when I'm feeling down.
It amazes me how life goes on even when someone you loved so much is gone.
I can't stand it that your gone sweet Mary and miss you everyday.

Thank God I have your kids and pictures and memories.....
I'm grateful to have this blog to honor you and cherish you!
You may be gone from us physically, but you will never be forgotten.
I know you are still with us. I'm lucky to see your signs.....
I share them with everyone you love and I pray it helps.
I was blessed with your life and now I'm blessed with your Spirit!
