Little Belle means so much to me – determination, strength, acceptance, hope, perseverance – to never give up no matter the circumstances and to always find joy.
Little Belle has inspired me in so many ways and will continue to do so. I am inspired by her amazing spirit, despite adversity, she finds joy in life and all its pleasures – she ‘sees’ with her heart and soul. Belle loves the beach, flowers – especially tulips and her beloved Irene and family (doggies too!) She doesn’t let anything stand in the way of being happy, being loved and finding joy. She is an over-comer, she is so uplifting and encouraging just by being LITTLE BELLE!
She has taught me to look at life differently. We all have the choice. Don’t dwell on the hard parts or the negative ones – change your attitude and perspective and look for joy because you will find it! Take pleasure in the little things – accept what can’t be changed and do your best wherever you are and whatever your circumstances are.
It’s so hard to pick a favorite photo because I love them all. Especially the ones w/Irene, the beach, her doggie siblings and of course smelling the tulips! You can tell how content she is – how blessed she feels and how loved she is and how much she loves life.
I enjoyed all of her quotes so much – again, hard to pick a favorite. I loved the ones about magic because if we let ourselves, we can find the magic in life.
This is what I would like to say to Little Belle: Thank you precious Little Belle for shining your light in my life and for giving me the privilege of sharing your journey. You have touched my heart deeply and I love you so much. I will never forget you or all the things you have taught me – I will carry them with me in my heart. I am a better person because of you. You made me smile and you lifted my spirits countless times. You are so special. May you run free in Heaven and be at peace. Happy 18th Birthday in Heaven Little Belle! Please know that your legacy will continue and the world is a better place because of you.
Dearest Irene, I am sending you prayers and love especially on your birthday today. Sharing your birthday with your beloved Little Belle is magical but also so sad since now she is in Heaven watching over you. I am praying that you find comfort and strength and healing and that the words of so many of us will help your heart bear the pain of such an immense loss. You will meet again one day and what a glorious day that will be. Thank you for sharing Belle with us and may God bless you and your family.
