Thoughts ~ Miss you all

This past week has been tough on me in a way. Lots of birthdays which makes me remember.
Remember those children that aren't here .......

I miss them so much. I never met them , got to hold them but I loved them so much. I hide a lot sometimes try to be so tough but then Saturday nite My Jennifer had to make her wish before she blew her candles out. I think she seen the tear in my eye as we sang to her. Silly Little Carly covering her eyes made me smile. Jennifer told us her wish was that her siblings in Heaven and all the other babies could be with there families. My sweet girl always looking out for someone else. Jennifer's got a Huge Heart.

I ran across this poem last week and it's so true. I love reading it always makes me stop and think. Especially when I'm missing them.
I didn't take this picture either but it is so lovely looking up at the sky.

Mommy loves you all , I miss you all so much when our family is doing things together and your not here.

“You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You... can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she'd want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”

that is a touching poem, Caroline; I can see why you would take comfort in the words; your children all have a caring nature that you have taught them; Jennifer was so sweet in what she said

hugs to you
