Happy Birthday!


Happy 5th Birthday sweet boy!  Everything I can think of to say I've said a thousand times.  We miss you so much down here.

Your daddy and I have talked several times about what it would be like in our house if you were still here.  You would be starting kindergarten this year.  We should be meeting your teacher and buying uniforms, a backpack and so many other school supplies.  Instead we're fixing flowers for another trip to the cemetery.  Even though I miss you constantly some events make the heartache even worse and seeing all the other kids getting ready for school this year is one of them.

I often wonder if you would like trains the way Eli does or would it be some other obsession.  Would you know how to read?  Or write your name?  What kind of birthday would we be having today and who would we invite?  Would you be playing t-ball and soccer?  Eli and I talk about you a lot, especially lately.  When he sees a picture of you he says "Brother!"

Thank you for being such a blessing in our lives.  I have felt you with me so much lately and as much as I miss you, I know you are in a much better place and I look forward to seeing you and holding again one day.
