Always and forever...

I am thankful for my Saint Lucia.

Booger Baby


Lucy Loo

Lucy Belle

Lucia Isabella

Lucy Goosey

Luce Dog

I'm completely vacant of any words to describe my life since her loss. I feel as if I've said it all. There is nothing left to say. I'd rather be bleeding and maimed on the outside so others knew how I felt on the inside and could treat it appropriately.

Thankful, thankful, thankful that I know her. That I bore her. That I loved her so completely. Even with the present pain.

Thank you, Lucy.


  1. so perfectly precious.

    forever yours...
    it is the be apart and waiting to see her again that hurts. I am so sorry...


  2. and... perfectly said, Molly. you guys are amazing.

  3. What a blessing she was to you! What a wonderful mother you are to her! Love you blogging friend. A friend in East Texas, Pam.

  4. I'm thankful for Lucy, too.

    Her short life is a reminder of what we all need to cherish. She gives us perspective.

    Your example, Molly, is heartbreakingly inspiring.

  5. Lucy is so lucky that she is yours. Yours for eternity!

  6. Having lost a child has got to be the biggest trial of this lifetime. I can't say I know how that feels. But probably in a smaller way, I can relate to your pain as those words you express are so familiar to me with the grief I went through when my husband died 13 years ago. The pain was so horrendous. People would tell me to be thankful for the plan of salvation and I WAS but I still went through the pain and the longing and the incredible missing him. Your child is a part of your heart and soul and will be forever which makes the separation I'm sure so much harder to bare. I am so sorry.

  7. Oh, Molly. Life can be so hard, can't it? But I guess we signed on for all this.

    What were we, crazy? ;)

    Nope. Just determined. Which is why you're going to be with Lucy again someday. Not as soon as you'd like, but sooner than it sometimes feels.

    Hugs to you. And a Merry Christmas, too, because that's what makes all of this possible.


  8. I have learned at your feet Molly. And that is because Lucy is your girl.
    You are lucky.

  9. my heart wants to break in half, yet it sounds so cliche as i'm writing that. i'm sure it feels like it knows what that means, but that i really have no idea what it means. it makes me want to crawl in my toddler's crib and sleep there all night.

  10. Thanks so much for your call today. It was so great to talk to you. I am thankful that I knew Lucy too. And I'm thankful for your friendship. Thanks for being an example of faith and courage for me. I can't imagine how hard it must be. So glad your week has been better. Love you.

  11. I just adore this picture. I've always thought the candid shots were the best, and they invoke in us richer more 'living' memories. Again, what a precious picture of your Lucy. Christmas blessing to all!!!
