Wish You Didn't Have To Go

Anna at rest in RV 2009

While getting our motorhome fixed up (still haven't finished de-winterizing yet) and Summer is almost over. It is almost time to start getting it ready for Winter again.

Today when I stepped inside the motorhome, my chest began to ache. All the fond memories of Anna came rushing back. I miss her so much that the tears started and continued to flow for what seemed like hours.

I can almost picture her laying between the beds where she use to lay at night. I remember her sitting on the couch waiting to be loved and looking out the window. When I look to the front, I see her empty seat (front passenger seat), where she always sat on our many trips to the campgrounds. We called her "dad's co-pilot".

I can barely stand the pain, it hurts so much. This was Anna's home-away-from-home and she loved going for rides in it. She never missed an opportunity to jump in even if we were not going anywhere. I miss those days. Cut short by illness. She will always be missed.

It's hard for me because she was there through so many tough times. She gave me strength when I didn't think I could go on. She was my little girl and now all I have is memories of the times we shared. I wish she hadn't left us so soon. I had so many plans for her, Mike and myself. I look forward to seeing her in heaven.

Good night my little Anna - Momma loves and misses you with all my heart.
