We have been slowly working through the process of this thing called life. Perhaps that is why I have been rather silent the last while.
I don’t feel like I have many inspirations or burning urges that will burst if I don’t capture them in script.
Now, if I would view the world from Kobe’s eyes for a few minutes, I would have plenty to say! So here’s a peek into his life..
Mommy and Daddy decided to sell Kierra’s bed. They told me another little boy that can’t sit up and run and play really needs it. They said the little boy is a little like Kierra and his daddy is going to come pick the bed up.
I thought it was exciting at first! Daddy and the man took my bed all apart and hauled it out to the man’s red van. He seemed pretty pleased with it! His little boy was sleeping in a bed they had rigged for him. That means they had propped pillows and wedges under it so he would be more comfortable. I;m sure their little boy will love it as much as Kierra did! He even has a little two year old sister. Maybe she will be able to lay in the bed with him, just like I did with Kierra!
When it was time to go to bed later that night, there was just this big empty hole where Kierra’s bed used to be. I missed it so much, I was almost crying. I begged and begged for it to come back!
Mommy brought my old crib mattress down and made me a cozy little bed in the corner of the room. Then the best thing happened! Daddy found a Thomas Train bed on Craig’s List that he showed me. He said he would try to get it for me.
That made everything much better! I still missed Kierra’s big soft special bed, but thinking about Thomas made me feel happy inside!
Every day, I would ask about my Thomas bed. I thought it would never come! It made me grouchy. During the night, I would crawl off my crib mattress and wander over to mommy’s room, calling for her.
Last evening, as soon as Daddy came home from work we got ready to go look at the Thomas Bed! We drove for a long time! I was getting bored. I got so bored and tired that I fell asleep.
Mommy woke me up, and there was the Thomas bed , sitting in someone’s yard! I was SO excited I could hardly walk in a straight line! It was shiny and bright blue. We loaded it into the van, and paid the lady for it.
Getting home and setting it up was the best part!
Daddy had it together in no time! He even let me help!
Mommy says I was beaming! I still am!
I slept all night long without waking ONE time!!
My other favorite thing right now is my kittens! I named them Thomas and James, just like my favorite trains. I play with them every day and give them food. Sometimes they even drink out of my pool!
Sometimes we sit and rest.
Sometimes I tell them secrets.
And sometimes, I TICKLE them!
They help me not feel quite so lonely without my sister around here.
I miss bringing her things,
and cuddling with her,
and pushing her chair.
Sometimes I wrap my blanket around my shoulders and pretend I’m an angel. That makes me feel happy too! Because someday, I want to go to heaven and be with Kierra. Maybe she will take my hand and hold it tight, just like I used to do for her.
I just can’t wait! Because sometimes, I tell mommy two things about Kierra…
“I MISS him!”
“I want to go see Kierra!”
