My dearest angel, today it has been three years since the day you left us that Sunday morning. I selfishly hoped you would rally one more time but I knew your heart was weak and you were oh so tired. You gave me so much more time than I could have ever asked for and you fought to the very end. Your unwavering courage and high standard of dignity stayed with you until the very last breath. We were very blessed to have had you in our lives and to watch you blossom into such a wonderful adult. Thank you for picking us to want to spend your life with.

I bought you another balloon for your tree but this year I chose a happy balloon adorned with smiley faces and the saying "We Love You" on it. I want you to be able to look down from heaven and know how much we loved you. I know you knew, but it is also nice to see. Love you Tara

Mom and family


Almost 3 years

Thursday, July 22, 2010 will mark three years since we last saw your precious face. Oh how I wish I could once again hold you and bury my face in your mane of gorgeous fur. I wish I could turn back time and once again see you laying out on the deck soaking up the sun like you always loved to do. I wish I felt the comfort of knowing you were sleeping right beside our bed. I miss you so much and to this day it still hurts. Alas, I can't turn back the clock, I can never hold you again, and I can never see you laying out on the deck or feel that comfort of knowing you are sleeping right beside us. What I have and what I will always treasure though, is those fond memories of the over 13 years we spent together. The memories which will draw a smile to my face when thinking about you. The memories that have me pulling out pictures and fondly remembering the day which it had been taken. You left a hole in my heart but slowly the love and memories we shared have started to fill it back up. I miss you baby girl and always will.

I did it! 5,000 views! Thank you to all my pup pals who stop by to visit me and still think of me.

Daily dose of quotes to brighten your day

So, my mom is feeling pretty silly right now about how she fretted about my tree. Truth is, it was just late to bloom this year and now it seems to be no worse than last year. That is a great sign. Mom should know I am looking after her tree and will always do my best to keep it going until it is established and doing well on its own. We would've preferred it to look better but as long as it is holding steady, we are hopeful.

So here are my daily quotes this wonderful Mother's Day weekend. I hope you all enjoy and Happy Mother's Day mom.

Love and purple kisses,
Angel Tara

The greatest gift in my life was my family

The Tree Gods - Tara's tree year three

Just a week ago I was totally sure Tara's tree was dying but in the past few days with some much needed rain and warmer temps, the tree is starting to bud a little more. Last week, one tiny little bud opened at the top of the tree and although no more buds have completely opened, you can at least see now they are making an effort. I am still very worried because I don't see it looking better than last year and it is really late to bud this year, but it goes to show no matter what the outcome -this little tree has the same will and determination to try to make it as Tara did.

The tree Gods are shining down on us and at least we have another season to try and help this tree turn a corner so it can actually improve.

Thanks for the prayers and for just listening to me. I so want this tree to somehow make it and do well.



I think we're losing Tara's Memorial Tree :(

It shouldn't bother me quite as much as it does, but I think we're losing Tara's Royal Red Maple tree. The very first year it returned wonderfully, full, and gorgeous. Last year, although it did bud, it wasn't was full as the previous year. This year there is only one single open bud near the very top of the tree. Either that is a very early bloomer and there is still hope for the rest of the tree, or it is a sign that this year the tree is significantly in distress and we're losing it completely. I'll hold out hope that my precious baby girl's tree will make it, but it isn't looking good right now.

I flew down today to sprinkle some angel dust on my brother Dragon and realized I haven't brought you all any new quotations for awhile. My quotes today are about appreciating life to the fullest. Hope you all enjoy

Love and purple kisses,
Angel Tara

There is no better way to start each morning than to receive a purple kiss on the cheek.
~ Angel Tara

Ordinary riches can be stolen, real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.
~ Oscar Wilde

You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.
~ Friedrich Nietzsche

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away
~ Author Unknown

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.
~ Ashley Smith

One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me

Author Unknown

When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see;
The sun will rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
Remembering how I'd lay my head
In your lap that special way.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me.
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name
And petted me with her hand.
She said my place was ready,
In Heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.

But, as I turned to heel away,
A tear fell from my eye,
For all my life I never thought
That I would have to die.
I had so much to live for,
So many sits and downs to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.

I thought about our lives together,
I know you must be sad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.

Remember how I'd nudge your hand,
And poke you with my nose?
The frisbee I would gladly chase,
The bad guy, I'd "bark and hold".

If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for awhile,
I'd wag my tail and kiss you,
Just so I could see you smile.

But, then I fully realized,
That this could never be;
For emptiness and memories
Will take the place of me.
And when I thought of treats and toys,
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you and when I did,
My dog-heart filled with sorrow.

But then I walked through Heaven's gate,
And felt so much at home;
As God looked down and smiled at me,
From His beautiful golden throne.
He said, "This is eternity,
And now we welcome you,
Today your life on earth is past,
But here it starts anew.

I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last;
For you see, each days's the same day,
There's no longing for the past.
Now you have been so faithful,
So trusting, loyal and true;
Though there were times you did things,
You knew you shouldn't do.

But good dogs are forgiven,
And now at last you're free;
So won't you sit here by my side,
And wait right here with me?"
So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart.
For every time you think of me,
I'm right there, in your heart.
