I thank God for eyes.  For it is with them that I saw you...

Head full of dark wavy hair.

Perfect button nose.

Pretty eyebrows.

Dark lashes.

Plump cheeks.

Full bottom lip.

10 chubby fingers and toes.

7lbs 6oz of... Perfection.

I said my hello and goodbye in the same breath.  I thanked God because I didn't think I could breathe when I saw you... It was during that moment I was reminded how miraculous life is.

God baby was never mine.  She was GOD's baby all along.  

Until I see you again, sweet angel, I pray that you rest comfortably in the arms of loved ones who have gone on... I've added you to the list of souls I must see when I get there.

I wanted you before you were born.  I loved you before I met you.  I finally saw you and, although I will never be able to see you again, you have touched my heart.  Forever.



  1. Beautiful words. So sorry for your loss.

  2. This was beautiful, Tabby. We're all here behind you <3


  3. Lovely post and a blessed reminder that everything we have belongs to Him, even when we would prefer to have it otherwise. Continued prayers for you as you anticipate the promised resurrection!
