Miss You, Ellie Belle


I do not have a lot of words today as Ellie's passing is still very fresh and almost seems unreal to me. However, I felt moved to make a small post to the scrapbooking community. I am in total disbelief at the goodness of so many who do not know me personally, but only through my pages. I cannot describe how touched I am by your kindness and generosity - Thank You. Ellie loved to create and often would sit by me when I would upload layouts and projects. I know that she will be watching over me, Jesus at her side, continuing to be my inspiration for all the pages to come.

Forever free, Ellie. I miss you and know you are near. My arms ache to hold you and kiss your sweet little face. If one day in Heaven is like 1000 here on earth, wait for me for about 15 minutes and I will be there with you. Love you, baby girl ~ Mama

Niki~

I just meet you today on Christian Paper Crafts but you have touched my life so much already. I can't imagine the feelings you are going through but know (and you probably already do) that your daughter will forever be with you, everyday.

Hugs,
Ellie

Hey sweetie! I just jumped over here after leaving a comment on your Vintage Plum profile.
I am so sorry to hear that. She is so beautiful (must take after her mother). And yes, she is watching over you. Stay strong.
I am so glad you found us over at VP. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need anything.
Talk to you soon!

Hi Niki! I had to post here because my computer crashed and I'm on our laptop- i lost ALL my e-mail addys! I hope we can recover all of that, my husband just got home from visiting his parents who are both in a bad state. But we're doing okay. I wanted to thank you for your well wishes. I appreciate you so much! You are ALWAYS on my mind and in my prayers! lots of love, deb
