Another day in my life when I am blindsided by grief. Another birthday for another Angel who's family has aching arms and yet a heart full of apperciation.
It brings back all those feelings of anger, saddness, hopelessness, confusion and then at the end joy.
As my cyber sister deals with all those minute by minute vivid memorys and heartache, I too sit with her from many miles away. Why? because it makes me think of Ethan and all those feelings I had almost 2 and a half years ago. It makes me sad another mom, dad and sibling are sitting around feeling that pain.
But I do get that joy because stephanie is a great mom and has turned her loss into something bigger to help other familys, and friends. And best of all I know her.
So this year while we celebrate Vayden's 1st Birthday in Heaven from many miles away from his amazing family I too will still sit with her in the mourning booth. Im sad I never got to know this little boy.
Happy 1st Heavenly Birthday Vayden. Eat tons of Angel cake and if your belly hurts I'm sure you have many friends who will snuggle with you.
