Shine on, sweet girl.

I haven’t posted in awhile.
The words aren’t coming to me.
I’m sad.
I miss my sweet, sweet girl.
But I promised I would never let anyone forget her. So I come here to post something anyway. To honor her. Always my goal. I remember thinking about this very early on. It was in the Emergency Room that night, in fact. I don’t know why I was thinking about this then.
But here I am. I’m keeping her light shining. Keeping my promise.
I love you, Michelle. Forever and ever. You are my girl.

Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.
~Isaiah 60:1

She had so much fun. That life style was for her. Keith and I often had discussions with her that we could see her going to college out west. She LOVED horses. Now she can ride as much as she wants.

  1. I can imagine her riding bareback out into a beautiful pasture. Then tying her horse up to a big beautiful tree. After she sits in the shade for a bit, she gets up and dances through the tall grass. Just before the sun sets she rides off to where it looks like the mountains and the sky meet. It is a beautiful scene. She is happy. She is smiling. Her light will shine forever!

  2. Really great to see you have wonderful memories of your trip to Steamboat Springs. I have a photo of Michelle on horseback with Keith. I’m sure you have too. I’ll email you. I don’t see a place to attach to this post.

    Finding peace in your message, Lisa Farrell
