It's so hard to believe that today marks 3 years since we lost this precious girl! Seems like maybe 3 months. Not a single day goes by that I don't think of her and wonder what she would be doing right now. She would have moved to Austin, completed 1 year of college, had at least 1 job, a ton of new friends as well as the old and created fun and happiness for all that she came in contact with. Abby lived her short life full on ~ as we all should! She was strong willed, funny, loving, absolutely brilliant and we considered her our "family manager". She had a definite schedule for herself and wanted that for each of us too. :) If you were 10 minutes late, she was calling to see why. She scheduled so many activities that most of the family needed an appointment to be with her. We were "summoned" to lunches after Church, Holiday gatherings, shopping trips and school functions. She and Alex (grandson) had a Nanny from Columbia when they were small and she taught them to speak fluent Spanish. Abby would stamp her foot at 2 yrs old if we mispronounced a word. I could go on for days but I won't.
As difficult as it is without her, we were extremely blessed to have her with us for almost 16 yrs. We don't have God's Master Plan but obviously, He needed her to do beautiful things in Heaven.
My "Special Request" is to ask each of you if you would be willing to perform 3 Random Acts of Kindness this week...more if you'd like! :) You're welcome to come back and share or just have them remain anonymous. The latter is what I like to do! Doing this will bring such happiness to others and YOU will become one of Abby's Angels.
Thank you for your visit ~ your time is always appreciated! Give those you love big hugs, tell them over & over how much they mean to you, make a phone call ~ no text or email! ~, go visit and take a meal or just stop by for coffee. Forget the to-do list, the projects and live in the moment...that's all we really have!
