A year has past and I miss you as much today (March 10, 2009) as I did on March 10, 2008. 

As I look at your pictures, which I do everyday, I can’t believe that you are not here with me.  It doesn’t matter which room of the house I’m in, or the yard or in the car, I can see you so vividly, sitting and laying in your favorite places.  You were always as close to me as you could get. 

This past weekend was the first weekend that I’ve been in the front yard since you left. You and I loved being in the front yard together.  I have so many precious memories spending time with you there.  You would lie there and watch me do gardening, or we would sit there together with you in my lap.  We would wait for Dad to come home from work or sit and watch the cars go by and whatever else was going on out there.  Sometimes we would put a blanket under the trees and lounge there with Dad having our (and yours too!) favorite coffee house drinks.  Those were times I’ll never forget.  You loved your time around the mailbox!  Dad and I would take a chair and sit there for the longest time while you explored every inch of the mailbox area.  That was a favorite time for you - and for us.  Whatever you liked to do was what we liked to do.  You made our hearts so happy, and we had so many joyous and fun-filled times with you everyday. 

Every time we have a thunderstorm, I think of you and how we spent many nights up together because you were so afraid and couldn’t sleep – which of course meant Mama couldn’t sleep.  And, then Dad took over and would sit up with you until all the lightening stopped.  Meisen, it never bothered or inconvenienced either of us in any way – we would gladly do it all over again –

…. if we could have you back with us! 

I remember so many days and nights we had to give you medication, round-the-clock.  Dad would get up every hour to give you what you needed, and I’d be up with him.  We alternated times coming home from work to check on you during the day.  We would gladly do it again –

…. if we could have you back with us! 

I remember getting up with you in the middle of the night, for weeks, to go outside with you and hold you – and I would gladly do it again –

…. if I could have you back with me! 

I remember Dad and I taking off from work to take you to medical specialists all over Dallas – and we would gladly do it all over again –

…. if we could have you back with us!

I remember people in my office used to say that if anything happened to you that I would have to take Leave Of Absence from my job!  It may have been a joke to them, but it wasn’t to me.  You were like our child in so many ways (especially to me, you were my baby) and anything we needed to do for you is what was done – and we would do it all over again –

…. if we could have you back with us! 

Darling, you were like a breath of fresh air every day I saw you, no matter whether I had been out shopping or just coming home from work.  I couldn’t wait to get home to see you every day.  Even when we went out to dinner, to a meeting or a visit with friends, I couldn’t wait to get back home to you.  That is where my heart was, home with you.  I would take you everywhere that I could, just to have you with me and now I’m missing my ‘Darlingest Darling’ and ‘Mama’s Onliest Baby’ sooo much.  I can’t express how much I love and miss you.  I think of you so many times during each and every day, and I can tell you that there will never be anything that will ever take your place in my heart!  I thank God for giving us the special 16 years that we had together.  He truly gives good gifts to His children that no man could ever give! 

You taught me so much about loving and caring.   Although I saw you as a tiny little girl, that didn't have anything to do with being timid, shy or weak!  You were a tiger if I ever saw one, but the gentleness of your heart toward me was unbelievable.  I have never seen the depth of love like you had for me.  Most of all, I have never seen the look of love on a pet’s face and or in their eyes like I saw on your face and in your eyes towards me.   I saw it every time I held you and talked to you.  There would be so much devotion and love in your eyes, Meisen; I will never forget that look.  Oh, how you could speak to me with your eyes!

I remember how you would wake up in the mornings and lay motionless with your face about 2" to 3" from mine.  You would lay so quietly staring at me until the first flicker of my eyes.  You would then pounce on me so excited that I was finally awake too!  Oh how I would love to experience that again -

            …. if I could have you back with me!

Although it has now been a year, I wanted you to know that I have not forgotten you or our life together and I never will.  Your memories are all I have right now, but I know there is more to come for us.  I love you Mice-a-roo, Mama’s sweetest baby - my heart will always say -

…. if only I could have you back with me!

Our Love Forever - Mama and Daddy
