My Precious Little Angel

I sit here today hoping not to break down and cry. My life has changed forever. I was 3 months when I found out I was pregnant of Alyssa. I was in shock and at the same time happy and embarrassed. Why? I had just delivered Ryan that meant Ryan was 3wks old. When I got pregnant. I called my husband to give him the news. He said, " that was a good thing Ryan will have someone to grow up with." All my other children were 4 to 5 yrs. apart and never had someone to play with as they got older. When I found out I was having a girl, I was over joyed and could not believe it. Even my mom said, " This baby girl will be spoiled by me. " She made sure I ate anything I would crave. Finally, the moment everybody was waiting for; Alyssa was born. Each month that went by, Alyssa grew bigger and chunkier and was loved by all my family. She brought this joy into our lives I could not explain. Even when I would take her to the stores to shop, strangers would compliment her and ask for permission to carry her. Alyssa, brought me lots of happiness into my life. I had this love towards her as if she was my first baby. I would always talk about her to my co-workers. I carried pictures of her and Ryan on my cell phone and I would tell them I was blessed. When I was away from Alyssa, I would stare into my phone to see her beautiful face. When she was in the backseat of her car seat, I would turn the rear view mirror just to see every expression she made. Even my husband would say, " She is beautiful, there is just something about this little girl. She is very special." Alyssa, was a very happy baby and was not scared of anything. She loved Barney and the movie grease. Alyssa, left us with alot of memories. I miss her very much and I wish I could change things. Alyssa loved listening to Elvis. I would carry and dance with her. I made sure she had our attention and know she was loved very much; I wanted her to have good memories. Everytime I walked into the house, she would run towards me and reach out for me to carry her. My precious little Angel came into this world leaving us with lots of love and a new way to see life.                                                  

 

 The Broken Chain

LITTLE DID WE KNOW THAT MORNING THAT
GOD WAS GOING TO CALL YOUR NAME.
IN LIFE WE LOVED YOU DEARLY
IN DEATH WE DO THE SAME.
IT BROKE OUR HEARTS TO LOSE YOU,
YOU DID NOT GO ALONE;
FOR PART OF US WENT WITH YOU
THE DAY GOD CALLED YOU HOME.
YOU LEFT US PEACEFUL MEMORIES,
YOUR LOVE IS STILL OUR GUIDE,
AND THOUGH WE CANNOT SEE YOU,
YOU ARE ALWAYS AT OUR SIDE.
 
OUR FAMILY CHAIN IS BROKEN
AND NOTHING SEEMS THE SAME,
BUT AS GOD CALLS US ONE BY ONE,
THE CHAIN WILL LINK AGAIN.

Not a day goes by mama,

that I don't stop thinking about you.

Always know that I love you and miss you

I want you to know that I tried my very best to help

you during that day of the accident.

I never lost hope nor faith of you and prayed and cried to God

telling him why did this have to happen.

Im trying baby, Im trying very hard to be strong for myself

and for mommy and daddy.

I Love You Mama

 

 

I wrote this for Alyssa's Memorial on her 2nd Birthday

                           My Sweet Angel Alyssa

Since you have been gone, I miss you dearly, My life has not been the same, I've been lost and confused with so many questions and no answers. I will always wonder "Why" I had to loose you at a very young age. I will always love you and carry you in my heart. Every time my heart beats I think of you. I sometimes feel this is not real and soon, I will wake up. My mind tells me you are really gone and my heart does not want to accept the reality of you being gone. "Where did I go wrong, My Sweet Baby!" The day you were born I was over joyed with happiness; I finally had a baby girl. You changed my life forever; I was so blessed to have you in my life. I enjoyed every minute being with you. Before you were born, I would always worry all the time. But you taught me not to worry about thing in life and to enjoy my time with you. For some reason I just wanted to make memories with you. So that you would't forget " How much I loved you." Only God knows how much I missed you; When I was at work ; I always had to stare into my cell phone to see your pictures and feel close to you. You had the most beautiful eyes and a smile that just made mommy feel a joy inside. Till this day I still carry that cell phone with me. " Mama" I miss having you here with me; I think of all the memories we shared together. I wish I could hold you in my arms and dance together to Elvis; I wish I could sing to you all the Barney songs you loved. I miss having you next to me while you watched t.v. till two in the morning. " How, can I not go insain without you. " My sweet Alyssa today is your 2nd Birthday and you are not here, But I will keep you alive by all your memories. I tell people don't be scared to mention my Alyssa, She did exist in this world. Sometimes they are scared to mention you, Because they don't want to hurt me, But I tell them my heart is already broken and the pain will always be there." It brings me joy to talk about you, Because you brought me lots of happiness into my life; Now that you are gone you changed my life forever. You taught me to take it one day at a time and not to stress about things that have no meaning. Life is Short, " I say to you all enjoy life with your loved ones and make good memories. We are here in borrowed time and we will not be here for long. My family is not complete like the Broken Chain Reads. My baby is gone, but one day I will see my Alyssa again. Happy Birthday Mama you are in good hands I ask God our Father to give you a Big Hug and a kiss from Mommy, Daddy, and your brothers Tj, Andrew, and Ryan, and big sister Steph. Love You and Miss You!
