Today our sweet Lilly would have been 2 years old. My heart longs to be having a huge celebration with my two girls and wonderful husband. Instead it will be day to honor her short life, reflect on the blessings we have, and remember the lessons we have learned.
As every mother experiences, the first time they put that new baby in your arms, you are forever changed. The feeling of love is overwhelming. I remember just staring at Lilly and telling God that if something ever happened to her, I would not be able to breathe another breath. Oh how we under estimate ourselves and God's power!
I now truly believe that he would never give us more than we can handle and that he has a perfect plan for my life that my earthly mind just can't grasp. He saw us through a very dark time and has restored us with the blessing of Mia.
Mia will be 6 months old tomorrow and I don't think the date is a coincedence. I truly believe he wants us to have a joyful, abundant life. We are going to take today to honor our sweet Lilly. Then tomorrow we can celebrate a huge milestone! God really IS good!
Lilly, I hope you are having a wonderful party in heaven today! We love you and miss so much! Happy Birthday sweet girl.
