Bella Jo

Well it's been a very bitter sweet week for us. It was our 21st wedding  anniversary. We suddenly had to let one of our babies, Bella go to heaven Sunday. Totally out of the blue when we thought we were just working on getting her over a tummy  bug. And put Sophie our 3 year old pug baby in for emergency surgery the same day.

Bella was  11  1/2. Happy, sweet, sassy and playful. She was the mama of the 4 we have here.  Her eyes were always smiling... but Bella would actually smile for her daddy, Russ.  We prayed and believed for her healing but the Lord knew what was best for her but He chose to take her home when He did. We think He saved her from suffering. He promises that all His ways are faithful, loving and kind. And I believe in my heart that He brought her straight into His arms and kept her  safe and peaceful  until she closed her eyes here and opened them again in Heaven. 

Bella Jo... mommy and daddy love you and miss you so much.  The girls miss you! My heart is lonely for you. I know our family will be re-united again some day... what a precious day that will be!!! Until then, I know you are safe, healthy and happy and I'll think of your sweet face often and visit with you daily in my prayers !!!

  1. I surfed over from Lorelei's bead soup post and I just wanted to drop you a note to say that I'm so sorry about Bella. You brought each other a lot of love and were lucky to have each other. All the best.

  2. Thank you so much Cynthia. We sure love our Bella. Miss her every day. We are really looking forward to Sophie healing quickly. It's been a hard couple of weeks. (((Hugs))) and many thank you's for your kind words.
