Weekend at Table Rock Lake

Trying my hand at something new. Letters to Phoenix.

Dear Phoenix,

Mommy and Daddy went to Table Rock Lake this weekend to celebrate Grandma Sally’s birthday. We were so excited for you to go on this trip! You were finally going to be able to show off your swimming skills to Daddy. You were going to have a bunch of cousins to play with all weekend. Instead, Mommy and Daddy went alone. Instead of laughing at your adorable antics, Mommy and Daddy cried at your absence.

There were so many things you would of loved. The biggest being that there were FOUR ceiling fans in the living area! FOUR! You would of loved to watch all four come on at once. There was balcony for you to play on, with a glass door that you could look out with when the weather was too cold to go outside. There was a long hallway that was perfect for chasing.

Instead of playing with you this weekend, Mommy and Daddy had to scramble to find books and games to keep us busy. How we hated that. We would of rather spent time with you.

We love you so much. We miss you so much. We will see you again. We promise.

Little Girl.

Little Girl.

    I’m so sad for both of you, I know there’s no words to make you feel better, I wish there was.

    This is such a beautiful thing to do. I hope it helps you. Thank you for sharing it with us. I will read it anytime you post. I think of you and your husband everyday. Someday this blog will also help others who are going through the same thing you are now. Hugs and love to you both.

    Love, Lisa Guyette

    Dear Beth,

    Though we have never, and may never meet until heaven, I hold you close to my heart. I pray for you and ask many of my praying friends to do so also. Your loss is an inconsolable wound, but I pray that someday it will be filled only with the many joyful memories of your precious child and the hopeful anticipation of a happy reunion and there will be no room left for pain!

    God bless you,
