Hannah was gone 8 months on Friday. It's so hard to believe it's been 8 months since I held that precious little girl in my arms and kissed her beautiful forehead. I miss her so much. I miss having her under my feet as I cook dinner and having to sing her songs over and over. I miss her announcing it's time to fix supper and saying over and over, "it's hot, very hot, yes it is!". I miss her giving my dishes bubble baths and the water all over the place. I'd give anything to sing and dance to the Dino Dance, "First you hop hop hop all over the place, shake your dino tail and make a funny face, everybody is twisting and turning, have a lot of fun while learning, to do the Dino Dance"...or..."You deserve the glory and the honor, lord we lift our hands to heaven as we magnify your name, you deserve the glory and the honor, lord we lift our hands to heaven as we magnify your name, for you are great, you do miracles so great, there is no one else like you, there is no one else like you, for you are great, you do miracles so great, there is no one else like you, there is no one else like you". Those are just a couple of our kitchen time songs. My girl sure did love to sing. She loved music. Got that from her daddy. Our girl is very missed in case you didn't know it. :)
I had a doctors appointment in Richardson today so I decided to go on the cemetary. I was alone and really needed to go. As soon as I turned down the road to the cemetary I started crying. I got out of the car, cleaned up the graves, fixed the flowers, and then sat down on the ground and had a talk with my girl. Cemetary's have always creeped me out somewhat. That's changed since Hannah's passing. Today it just felt good. I know she isn't there but it's where her body rests. It's hard to explain. All I know is that I left glad that I came.
The artist is working on Hannah's memorial bench for her school. It is going to be amazingly beautiful. She does them in mosaics. Hannah's will have a school house, ABC's, flowers, a golden retriever, musical notes, her photograph, and memorial plaque. Linda sends me progress as she does it and it's just going to be so perfect. I'm excited and can't wait to see it.
We recently did a promo for the counseling center that we go to here in Arlington. I'll try to post it here so you can all see it. It was about Hannah's life and how the counseling center helped. We were so glad that we were able to do a little something in return for all that has been done for us.
Please keep praying for us. We're making it but it's because people pray for us we know. We miss Hannah so much every single day. Our hearts are always heavy with her loss. God's been so good to us in the midst of our pain and we are grateful. Thanks for all your prayers and support. Thanks for loving our girl. Thanks for loving us.
