Letters from Mommy’s journal

(Originally published on Thursday, June 14, 2007)
(Written the day before her surgery; Natalie passed on a week and a half later.)
Dear Jonathan,
You are my first-born, my precious baby boy. You have gotten so big I can’t believe you are almost as tall as me or that you’ll be 9 this July.
I want you to know that I love you. I know I haven’t always been the best mommy but know this much—no matter what—I will always love you.
You are such an amazing little guy. Never stop dreaming, imagining or being creative. I know that if you want to you can be a great artist someday. You already are an artist.
Believe in yourself. I do.
Again, I love you. Never forget that.


Dear Anna,
My sweet baby girl—being your mom has been a joy.
I am only sorry that I’ve been sick so much of your life. I’m sorry that we haven’t cuddled more, that you haven’t read more to me. You are such a smart little girl. Yes, I called you a little girl because even though you are almost 7—you are my baby girl.
You are going to do just fine—in school and in life.
Never forget that mommy loves you, and so does God.
Butterfly kisses and hugs,

I will continue to pray for Jonathan and Anna Nattie. You were a good mother. Many times I have thought that I was a horrible mother but my children are grown now and they tell me I was a good mom…even though I was a little crazy sometimes. We will miss you!!
kisses and hugs,

Oh my god, I’ve got tears running down my face.
The kids are in my thoughts…
You’re doing a great job keeping her memory alive.

    I miss you so much Nattie.

    Rereading these, it hit me that Jonathan is a teenager now. And Anna is a tween. It just seems wrong that Nattie has missed five years of their lives.
