Dedicated to my Benton Boy

Mommy, Please Don't Cry

Mommy, Please Don't Cry... A beautiful angel carried me here!

I met Jesus today Mommy! He cradled me in His big, strong arms.
He made me feel so happy inside.
"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."
Mommy, please don't cry...heaven is wonderful!
Did you know the streets are made of gold? Real gold!
I have lots of friends, mommy.

We run and play. We giggle and laugh.
I can't wait to show you my secret hideouts!
Mommy, please don't cry...when I fall it doesn't hurt!
There are no tears in heaven.

"He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
I've met a man named Noah.
He told me about his big boat, all the animals, and the very first rainbow.
Have you heard of Noah, Mommy?
Mommy, please don't cry... We have lots of parties here:
With streamers and hats and the best chocolate cake ever!
When it's time to rest angels tuck us in, I never get scared mommy, there is no darkness here!
Jesus is the light of Heaven.

"Take heed that you do not depise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven."

Mommy, please don't cry...the angels are always singing.
I love to sing with the angels!
You'd be proud of me, I have a pretty good voice.
I must have gotten it from you.

There is a river, Mommy, in the most beautiful garden you could ever imagine...
and a huge tree with yummy fruit. The anges call it the Tree of Life.
Mommy, it is so wonderful to be alive in heaven.

Mommy, please don't cry...sometimes I just like to be by myself.
That's when I think of you.
Someday, Mommy, we will hold each other tight!
Then you will cradle me in your arms, and stroke my hair...
and once again, our hearts will beat together.

Mommy, please don't cry...
I'll wait right here for you.

~I ran a 10k for the first time
~Nicholas left on his mission to the Seattle WA Mission...I'm so proud of him and miss him of course.
~We went to Lagoon with DFA young cooperators and discovered again that Lagoon was way more fun as little kids! What is this motion sickness stuff?! We didn't even attempt the white roller coaster this year. Last year cured us of that.

~Rob & I had our 3rd year anniversary!
~Rob and Justin went backpacking from Tony's grove in Utah to Willow flats in Idaho. They slept in a large Elk family's bed of soft grass and listened to them bark all night.
~Working in the ER (I start part time officially in September and I feel really good about this change).
~Benton's nine month Birthday was August 16th...Happy Birthday baby boy! We think about you often and shed lots of tears because we miss you so much. But we know you are in good hands and that you are watching over us and doing missionary work! We love you Benton Boy!
~Mowing the lawn again and never stops growing...thank you Udy Lawncare.

Welcome to the Happy Farm

It all started with Axel Rose back in 2008...Who says you can't have rabbits in the booming metropolis of Logan?

Then the 2 La Mancha goats...Gucci & Jar Jar
Even when your down to your last few dollars, there is money in the tip box left for these...

Then Laura and Derrick...this little piggy went to Theurers Market, and this one had babies galore

Mama Laura proud of 12 beautiful babies...

Including our adorable Willbur

Then came Hope this spring...

She used to be able to fit here...but her paws said differently
She's not little any more.

Meet our newest Happy Farm addition...Jackabee

It all begins with an innocent look Jackabee's way.

One of Hope's favorite cookie Jars

Also one of jackabee's favorites

Rob the Mediator...they often have to be split up

Our form of entertainment...Hope & Jackabee Act III

Each morning, that I am not at work, I wake up to the mooing of the 2 cows in our pasture begging for grain, Hope barking at anything moving, and Jackabee meowing to be released from the backporch to play. It's nice to be needed :)
Welcome to Bowles Happy Farm where all your dreams come true!
