9 Months Without You

Leya - standing strong

Leya - standing strong

My Angel Leya

Today marks 9 months since the day you had to leave. I think of you every minute of every day, yet on the 17th it always seems harder to get through the day.

Your beautiful spirit lives on in my heart, and will until the day I come to join you at the bridge. When you could no longer run on this earth, you were carried away in Angel's arms to a better place. You are safe there, running around on big strong legs with Charlie and Jesse, having lots of fun while waiting for me and Charlie's Mom to come and be with you forever.

I love you and miss you so much Leya, and even now after 9 months, the tears won't stop. I know that I was so blessed to share 12 years with you, but it is so hard to be here without you. I bought a picture frame the other day and put your picture in it. I have hung it where I see it every day. The words on the frame reminded me of you and how you lived your life every day. The words are:


Listen more than you speak
Always act like you have a purpose
Appreciate a simple life
Give more than you receive
Be happy with what you have
Be a best friend.

Leya, you did and were all of the things this verse says.

But to me most of all, you are the best, best friend I could ever have asked for. You are such an inspiration to me. I believe I can honor you by trying to live my life according to these words too. I will always be so thankful that forever you are mine and I am yours.

Missing you and loving you always...
