Ruthie Lou has had very full days this weekend. I don't think she spent nearly any time in her bed! She spent quality time with her loved ones and heard great stories, got great advice and taught a few lessons herself. My favorite thing to do with her is to think of another blessing or miracle that Ruthie Lou has given me or the world. We have so many, I need to start writing them down. Some blessings are big, the important lessons in life, some are tiny, the small things we do everyday. Both big and small, all miracles and blessings she has brought on her journey have forever changed lives and my hope is that they continue to influence us for the rest of our own journeys here in earth.
We're going to Hospice today. We have been dreading this day and anxiously awaiting at the same time. We want so badly to be a family in our own setting, to do normal everyday things. We can't wait to take her for a walk, snuggle while resting watch a soccer game with her on the couch. Today, we getting to do those things.
It also marks the beginning of her transition. I wish that we had more time, but more time will still never be enough. We know so many of you wanted to meet her. We wanted her to meet so many more of you, all of you!! Those of you who did, were touched by an angel. And those who time didn't allow, an angel still touched your heart and trust me, she knows all about you. I talk to her all day about the amazing people in our life. Although my guess is, she already knows all about each and every one of you and that's why she fought so hard to be here.
I do know some of you are heartbroken having never met her but she will always be in our life, in our hearts and all around us. Look for her when she is gone, she will visit, she'll be the ladybug flying around you or landing in your garden (I will tell you that story later).
I may or may not be writing the next few days, I mostly do it when I have so much in my brain it won't settle until it's written down. But my request from you is to tell us the miracles and blessings Ruthie Lou has brought you, big and/or small. Please write it in our Guestbook for us to print and have always. If it is private please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
This is where the hard part begins, this is when we will need you most. Please continue to love us, please continue to pray. And if we cross your mind, please let us know, message us, text us. They do not bother us, we look at them when we need to be lifted up, you lift us up. We love you all so much.
