Hi! My name is Abigail. I finished my mortal mission in a little spec of eternity you call July 2013.
Now I'm in the Spirit World and can help my family and friends (that's everyone) from this side of the veil. Some people get a little uneasy talking about "talking spirits" or "ghosts" but I'm here to tell you we're not scary. My body died, but I'm still alive. My body was destroyed and really needed a break, but I'll have it again soon. You'll have to trust me on the issue of timing. It won't be long, promise.
A month before I came here, my mommy was holding me and I told her "I will keep you forever." It took her by surprise that I came up with that on my own, but I knew what I was saying. I reinforced it later a few times by telling her, "I will keep you forever in my world, " and "I will keep you forever in my life". I meant exactly what I said.
This little piece of world wide web is a place my mom can continue to write and record her feelings--her progress, I like to call it. I know it's helping a few of you, too.
Remember who you are--really are--and that many of us are excited to see you all again, too. Eternity is a very long time and I have to keep reminding my mom "I will keep you forever".

May 3rd Update

Earlier this week it rained. A lot. Wednesday morning I looked out at the road in front of our house, and the little creek that runs from our neighbor's acres, under the road, and continues along the edge of our property, was completely flooding. The water was up probably 4-5 feet above it's normal height and was pouring OVER the road. We had fun sloshing through it and watching our dog run in it.

Yep, we got a dog. After a lot of name ideas, we settled on "Grace." She is a stray from the animal shelter out here, and she's beautiful. From what we can tell, she's mostly a shorthair German Pointer. She doesn't bark excessively (YAY!), is well-behaved and somewhat trained, only jumps up on Mary and no one else, and is house trained (although she is not a house dog for us). We "lucked" out pretty good on her. The vet said that breed is very hardy and rarely sick. I was happy to hear that, and then 15 minutes later the test on Grace's blood tested strongly positive for Lyme's disease. So, now she is on antibiotics which make her sick and I'm doctoring a dog. Not exactly what I want to be doing, but oh well. The kids love her.

We have around 2 acres of grass...and now that it stopped snowing and rained a LOT, the grass is tall. So we bought a riding lawn mower that doesn't work. :) Good times. It works, it just stops working after 5 or 10 minutes of use. Aaron gets to doctor that.

As I sit at the computer, I hear 8 little chicks pecking on their food and straw in the other room, rustling around under the heat lamp. We got those last week. Hopefully they'll all survive growing up, the majority of them will be female, and Grace won't bother them. Haha. They are Buff Orpington chicks, which they say are friendly chickens. We can hope!

A friend of mine taught me how to (really) do my family genealogy last week, and although it is very challenging and often CONFUSING with so many of the same names, it is exciting.

Yesterday we drove down to Spotsylvania to participate in an Education Day of the 150th anniversary of the Battles of the Wilderness and Spotyslvania. Virginia was right in the middle of the Civil War (location wise) and you can't drive down a road without seeing some memorial sign about something.

I just finished my second course of holistic nutrition, we are still enjoying homeschool, and Aaron is enjoying his work.

Life is good. We are busy. We pray and study and serve and give thanks for so much that is right in life. We ache for our little princess that isn't with us. We pray for those who are still on their cancer journey, for those grieving, and for more who struggle elsewhere. We are so grateful that God is in control, at the helm.

He always has been, always will be. Happy May!

Faith.
