Friday, May 21, 2010

You are invited to join us in celebrating the life of Lucia Isabella Jackson tomorrow, May 22nd, 2010. -Wear pink all day. -Show love. -And release pink balloons at 4 thirty, wherever it is that you are. We will be having our own small gathering as a family, and we would love to see any photos or hear any stories of your Queen Lucy Day.

Thank you for loving us. Thank you for supporting us. Thank you for remembering our Lucy Belle.

This day is fragile - soon it will end
And once it has vanished, it will not come again
So let us love with a love pure and strong
Before this day is gone

This day is fleeting when it slips away
Not all our money can buy back this day
So let us pray that we might be a friend
Before this day is spent

This day is fleeting
When it slips away
Not all our money can buy back this day
So let us love with a love pure and strong
Before this day is gone

This day we're given is golden
Let us show love
This day is ours for one moment
Let us sow love

This day is frail - it will pass by
So before it's too late to recapture the time
Let us share love, let us share god
Before this day is gone

This Day by Point Of Grace


  1. Oh Molly. You have so been on our minds lately. We will be thinking of you and Vic and Lucy and Peter tomorrow especially. My heart hurts for you. Have you heard of Jamie Lee Curtis' children's book Where Do Balloons Go? I've only heard about it but your post reminded me of it. I wish I would have remembered sooner. We will pray for angels to surround you from heaven and earth.

  2. Molly,

    I hope tomorrow you can be filled with peace. You can cry your eyes out and laugh your head off if you want. You're entitled to whatever you want. Know that Lucy will be with you tomorrow in your grief. She will be thanking you that you as her mother are willing to LOVE her enough to have allowed her to return Home. She loves you Molly. I can feel that and I have never meet either of you. Thank you for your beautiful example to me. I am so grateful to have "meet" you.

  3. I would love to rememband celebrate Lucy this way. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers all day tomorrow. Much love and prayers of comfort for you.

  4. Thank you so much for letting us participate. I have the day marked on my calendar (the 22nd) and I've pondered what I might do, but felt a little lost about the whole thing. It may seem silly but I feel a great burden lifted as now I know what to do!!!

  5. I am thinking of you. We will be celebrating Queen Lucy and thinking about how all of us must seize the moment and give an extra kiss and love to those around us.

    You and Lucy continue to rise to the top of those who I look up to for strength, increased faith and courage. I truly think of you often.

    We are moving to Kansas City this week. I will keep in touch! xoxo Mindy

  6. Hi Molly,
    You don't know me but I have been very touched by your story. I can't imagine what tomorrow will be like for you, but I hope you feel Lucy there with you. I will be thinking of you and wearing pink :) I hope you know how many people there are who care.

  7. Tomorrow is for you and Lucy. I will walk every step with your sweet spirits in mind. Love all of you.

  8. I am so glad that you have Queen Lucy day... May this day bring you peace and comfort... and lots and lots of pink!


  9. I will be celebrating your Queen Lucy today! I hope you, Vic and Peter have a day of remembrance that brings you peace... know that many are thinking and praying for you. Lucy's light is shinning on all of us!

  10. I would certainly love to celebrate your daughter's life with you on this day. My prayers are with you. And I'm sending lots of ((((hugs))))!

  11. I wanted to tell you about our Queen Lucy Day. Darien and I were decked out in pink. I had to run to Kohl's but luckily found a pair of pink denim 'pedal pushers'. We talked about Lucy. I gave Darien the instruction using a glove over the hand, and then taking it off again. We lunched at Red Robin, and left with pink balloons in hand, and at 4:30 sharp, after a prayer of thankgiving for Lucy, we sent them to heaven. Thank you for this Molly. I hope your day went as you hoped it would. I know you must have been surrounded by love and support. Bless you all!

  12. Dear Molly, Vic, Queen Lucy and Peter,
    Our Day:
    As you know it snowed and frankly, one of the first things I thought of was how the weather would affect you-if it would.
    Izzie and I dressed in pink today (very common for her, less common for me). I wore jeans, with a nice pink shirt and a pink cashmere zip up I love in rose pink, Izzie wore pink tights, a pink cordorey skirt from France with matching tights, a pink snowflake sweater with a hoodie and her pink cowboy boots.
    I purposely looked at the tree and the pink ribbons as I drove by, a brightness in all that snow.
    We went to see The Princess and the Pea fairy tale in the morning. It was all about being PURE of heart and that is how you recognize a true princess.
    We had a lot of tears, a playdate that did not work out, the cats we have fed for two years taken to hte shelter without a chance to say goodbye (long story)...and then,
    In the afternoon we went to the finish line of the running for ED and Izzie had a pink Unicorn with fairy dust painted on her face! I can't leave out the part about how I yelled at her in the grocery store just because I had too much stuff to do and then remembered and felt like it was an unfair reminder..I felt bad enough without the guilty reminder-but blessed that I had it. BUt also in the grocery store, we marveled over how a yam looked like a seal and pear looked like a penguin. Then we bought a bunch of Gerber Daisy's with a lot of pinks,we came home and arranged them and at 4:30, we were on the couch coloring and snuggling together.
    It was a snowy, stressful, sad, sentimental and silly late spring day, but we spent it together, and I thought of Lucy and your family with tenderness. Sending peace and hugs, Love, Meg

  13. Your sweet daughter & your family have been with me in my thoughts & prayers today. I took pictures of how we honored Lucia today, you can hop over to my blog if you like.
