Another Angel In Heaven

With a heavy heart, I report that Christi Thomas has earned her angel wings.

It probably could go without saying that Christi has touched a lot of lives. My friends and I have discussed the sheer amount of strength it has taken her parents to blog about these experiences, and about the life of Christi. With every new update, I have held my breath... until tonight.

She was born on Ace's birthday, and departed this life on my mother's birthday. She will forever be in my thoughts.

Forever nine, Christi had an infectious smile. Except for times when she was in great pain, her smiles were always present in her pictures.

She lived life to the fullest.

And she has taught me much. She has taught me not to take things for granted. She has taught me not to take my kids' good health for granted. She has taught me that we all should live our lives to the fullest, no matter how much time we are given.

In her short nine years on this earth, she accomplished so much and touched so many lives.

Shayne, Angela, and Shayla ... God be with you. In this time of grief, I hope you are able to memorialize the spirit that touched your lives in a way that you feel is right.

Christi ... thank you. Godspeed, little girl. Godspeed. You will be greatly missed.

This is a sad day. What a beautiful tribute to her. I'm so glad you introduced us to her last week.

The Lovely She, that is me!

I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.

The five-year-old with the 13-year-old attitude, who has a dictator's personality, asks you to watch her all the time and say "hold on" to keep your attention, and will someday come home on the back of some dude's motorcycle with 10 tatts and a body piercing or two.
