Our sweet neighbors have lost two of their four children. They can and did share the same thoughts and feelings as we have on Brenna's Heavenly Birthday. Thanks Stacie for wording it so perfectly and letting me plagiarize....(re-worded for our sweet angel)...
5 years ago today, a part of my heart was broken that has never healed....I love you Brenna and miss you every single day. I try to remember that even though each day is one day further from the last time I saw you, it's one day closer to the next time I will.
Thank heaven for my knowledge of the Plan of Salvation. Can't imagine losing a loved one without it.
This past year has been the hardest for me because I totally pictured her in high school. She may have limped a little from her atrophy but walking down the halls without her oxygen. She would have been so beautiful with her long blonde curly hair (she loved to dye it red in middle school.) She would brighten everyone's day and made people smile and laugh every time she walked into a room. She would be all the teachers' pet and have been voted Homecoming queen. She would have gotten straight A's, of course.
Kenney Chesney wrote a song that makes me bawl like a baby every time I hear it. "Who You'd Be Today" It is so sweet. Love the very last line the most.
