To: Miss Tinkerbell, Over the Rainbow Bridge----

From the moment your eyes opened, I warned you that there are 2 very nasty monsters that live in your room. One has a lot of water in it and the other gets very hot inside! They are both very evil <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/evil.gif" alt="" /> things, but necessary to us humans.

For the last 4 months, I've always been so careful when I use either one of these things---I'd count noses before I closed the door to either monster, but last night was a special exception. I'd let you & your parents & brothers out just like I always do at 10pm, but there was a knock at the door of our room. My "forever friend" asked me to use the water-filling monster & I was too tired to think about where you were. I filled it up with clothes & soap, then shut the lid. Believe me, I didn't know you had gotten in there somehow! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> You've always been such a curious girl when it comes to new adventures, and last night was no exception was it? <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/upset.gif" alt="" /> Still & all the same, I NEVER SHOULD'VE CHANGED MY ROUTINE, NO MATTER HOW TIRED I WAS OR HOW MUCH OF A HURRY I WAS IN OR HOW DISTRACTED I WAS. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tantrum.gif" alt="" />

But it happened anyway. By the time I looked in all your favorite hiding places & called for you endlessly, and still you didn't come, I was left with just 2 places left to look for you: the hot box, or the water box. I tried so hard to help you, but you had already slipped over the Rainbow Bridge.

My friend tells me it wasn't something that I did on purpose, and I know this, but that doesn't make me feel ANY BETTER!!! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shakehead.gif" alt="" /> All the tears I've shed since this happened haven't brought you back to me, and no amount of sobbing will make your brothers & parents feel any better now.

They're missing you terribly & wonder where you've gone. I just can't bring myself to tell them what happened...all I can do is cuddle with them & pray that I'll find the strength somewhere, someday, to tell them that you've gone to a beautiful place where there are no monsters & that you'll be waiting for them.

Tinkerbell, dear baby angel glider of mine, I AM SO SORRY THAT I LET THIS HAPPEN. PLEASE FIND IT IN YOURSELF TO FORGIVE ME!!! I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU & THE PRECIOUS LESSON I HAD TO LEARN THE HARD WAY FROM YOU!

I love you, baby, <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/gliderangel.gif" alt="" /> and I always will.

Mommy <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" />

Oh I wish there was something I could do to take away all your pain and tears!!! I feel the hurt and am crying while sending you all the positive thoughts I can...This was not your fault hun...accidents happen and no matter how hard we try things like this cannot be helped...Tinkerbell knows that you would never ever hurt her and she has forgiven you I am sure!!! I know that doesn't make this any easier but for the rest of her family you have to keep going and keep a smile in your heart...Think of all the wonderful moments you had with her and remember that she is now in a beautiful place waiting for you...

Oh, that is sooo sad. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

Minkasmom, I'm so sorry for your loss. Please don't beat yourself up over this. Accidents happen, and there's not one of us who can think of EVERYTHING EVERY TIME. Even if we do, things can still happen. I've experienced the guilt that comes with losing a pet to an accident that you feel you should have prevented, and I know it can be as terrible as the loss itself. Several years ago, I accidentally backed over our wonderful dog, Biscuit. I tell myself it wasn't my fault, and I had even looked behind the truck before I got in. But either I didn't see her, or she got behind the tire as I got behind the steering wheel. Whichever happened, she's gone and I was the one operating the vehicle that killed her, with my whole family right there (my daughters were almost 2 and 5).

So please know that it doesn't make you a bad person, just human. Take it from someone who's been there, the pain will get better even though it hurts so very badly right now. I'm sure Tink forgives you (if there were even anything to forgive) and she is sorry too. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

I am so very sorry for your loss. I know your heart must be breaking right now, but remember, and keep telling yourself that it was an accident. I know your baby doesn't blame you for what happened and she will be waiting for you over the bridge.

Minkasmom, I am so terribly sorry. Sometimes things are just meant to be and we will never understand God's will. Many tears have been shed by more than one person here. Keep your chin up and your thoughts positive. The whole Fantasy Family will be in my thoughts and prayers along with you and all of your family.

<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> I read this before anyone posted to it, and this is the first time I am able to post. I am so, so sorry this happened to you and your little Tinkerbelle. Please, accept my condolences. There is nothing anyone can say that makes this better, but time and your good memories will help. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

Denise, I am sooooooooo sorry for your loss! There are NO words that I could possibly say to take away the pain but please know that you are not at fault for this horrible accident! Like someone else said in another post accidents happen...and to the nicest of people. I am sure you are a wonderful glider mommy and that you always do what is in the best interest of your little ones...please FORGIVE YOURSELF...because that seems to be the one you are beating up on. Don't emotionally hold yourself in bondage over this...please remember all things happen for a reason, one we may not understand but things will get better I promise. Hugs and kisses and lots of prayers from our family to yours.

In preparation for laying her to rest, I bought a very unusual perennial flower called a blue & gold spiderwort. The leaves are like an umbrella shape, and golden; the flowers have 3 petals & are a deep purplish blue. That will be on one side of her, and an obedience flower will be on the other side. She was (& still is in my heart) a very special baby who deserves the honor of 2 special flowers to keep her company.

Say a prayer for me when the sun rises. And thank you all for your words of encouragement.

There is a new rule in my house, effective immediately: If the washer &/or dryer are going, the gliders DON'T COME OUT. If the gliders are out, THE WASHER &/OR DRYER WON'T BE OPENED OR STARTED.....NO EXCEPTIONS!!
