Goodnight Moon

Goodnight Moon

Goodnight Moon

And your red balloon

Goodnight Baby Girl

All...on top of the world...

Goodnight kisses

Blown without misses

"Muah-whoosh" kisses

Full of memories and wishes...

Combing your curly hair,

Hugging like a teddy bear,

Reading Goodnight Moon,

...And now,

you are there...

Now can you see th’ cow

jumpin’ over th’ moon?

Mommy loves you so!

Though she’s down below,

She wants you to know,

"I love you so

I miss my baby girl so..."

Goodnight Moon

And your red balloon—

Goodnight Baby Girl


on top of this world…

Merry Katherine’s first complete phrase as a tiny tot was an anguished cry:

“My balloon up in the sky!”

when she accidentally let go of her red helium-filled balloon as we got out of the car…

Now, she is rejoined up high in the sky with God, Jesus, and

the Holy Spirit, and

possibly with…her long-lost little red balloon!
