i woke to see heather’s post about maddie’s birthday when jilly came over to me & sighed, “she’s cute!”
indeed she is, my dear.
i remember the first time i saw her glorious face, i was struck dumb by her beauty.
and that beauty will remain forever.
in the hearts and minds of those who love and miss her, she will remain, for she is no longer here.
she’ll miss this birthday with her mama & daddy. she only had one with them and it was spectacular. full of cream puffs and love.
heather and mike love her with such fierceness, longing, and grace. i wish contented peace for them today while the celebrate such a beauty.
happy birthday, baby girl.
