I just happened to walk past my computer and noticed all Paris's new gifts. Then I sat down, started reading the posts, and realized it was her birthday. Words cannot express my feelings. I am trying to write this through “blurred’ vision. I miss my girl so much, even though we have LuLu. She has been wearing Paris’s sweater and Christmas collar (She hates them both. You would think I put a straight jacket on her).

I have been thinking about Paris so much since October, the day she left that I completely forgot about her birthday and the gift of her presence in our lives. I have been trying to stay busy by staying in touch with all the Marines that have come into our lives and preparing for the Saviors birth. I do not think a day goes by that I don’t think about her and her gift of love.

I am sure she is certainly having a great party with her friends.

We love you our angel girl...

Love- mom

The Rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts about themselves. Dogs who are tagged need to write down in there own diary about 7 random facts and the rules! You need to choose 7 dogs to tag and list their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to read your dairy! So here are 7 things you may know or don't know about little me :o)

1. I hated to be dressed up. I wouldn’t budge when my girl did that!
2. I am an expert escape artist.
3. I loved sleeping with mom.
4. I loved having tubbies (but not being blow dried)!!
5. I would shake and shake if I went for a car ride in the night! Not during the day though.
6. LuLu is my niece!
7. I buried everything! Mom would find my “treasures” everywhere (this thought is making her cry).

The pups I will tag are:

1. Junior
2. Pheobe
3. Wilson
4. Wally
5. Clover
6. Finnegan
7. Dudley

Thanks for being my friend!

I never realized what a big help in the kitchen Paris really was.
I have not had to bend over and sweep so much, as I have hasd to tonight 
I’ve picked up apples, pie crust, flour, you name it… I guess I should have seen this comming, since a couple of weeks ago when Hannah and her girl friends decided (of course the night before!!), that they were going to bring their Sadie’s “dates” to our house for dinner and to watch a movie in the T.V. room after the dance. I hustled the next day to make the house presentable. I don’t go up to the T.V. room much (Paris LOVED movie night!) so I thought I better go up and give it a once over. Man! I don’t think I have ever had to vacuum up there in the four years we have been in this house! There were chips and popcorn all over the place! Hahahaha! Paris was my vacuum! WOW! The things you find out. Any way, just thought I’d share.

Paris: I wish you were here to pick up after me…


Three weeks without our girl

To all Paris's new friends-

I got this from a post I wrote on:
Sat. Oct 21, The first 24 hours with out her girl

--------I edited some stuff out, but I think it's important to let all that don't know her story, be able to read it. The pain is still so fresh. Here it is-

To my new family (to be honest I wasn't ready to be a part of)-

First off, I would like to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers.
I feel the need to give a little bit of the details around yesterdays accident. So excuse me if I get graphic. My girl would have been 3 in November and she has been suc good company. I am a 45 year old "soccer mom". My middle child just started college at CO Christian University. I srill have my daughter for 2 more years and then she will be off too. My husband drives truck so you can get a sence of the void that Paris filled. I have 2 grandkids whom Paris adored!!!! I reluctantly let her go out and play with them yesterday becasue she had just had a tubby (and you know how fast they get dirty!). She cried and cried at the site of her kids outside playing soooo I smelled her, put her face in my hands, kissed her and let her out. Evedently, the kids were on the 4 wheeler trailer and Paris got underneath (I wish I didn't have the vision of her little head). There in lies, I think my pain--The vision. It wasn't time for her to go...
I had to send my Paris home in a box with my dad becasue I just wanted to sit and stroke her. After all, she was still warm. I wanted to smell her so bad ( I can't seem to pick up her scent anywhere. I even tried the towel I dried her with)... We will be burying her in a couple of hours when my husband gets home. Please pray for my grandkids (4 & 10) who saw the whole thing. It will be especialy hard for them. They are here every day.
I hope you don't think me neglectful of my Paris. I did go there with my thoughts but if she would have had a choice she would have been right next to them playing. I have to keep telling myself that.
Thank you all soooo much for letting me vent.

Paris's broken mommy-

PS- Know that I am trusting on the Lord to carry me through this time. I love you

After three weeks, the pain isn't as constant. Thank God for His strength becasue that alone is the only way I have gotten through this.

God Bless you for caring enough to read about my girl.

Paris's mommy forever- Mandie

Missing my girl and the hole she left...

Oh my! How do I get over not having her by my side. The pain is over powering me... I miss everything about her. I just want to bury my face in her fur again.
