365 Photo Project :: day 306 december 24 :: Letters to Sabrina

Dear Sabrina...all the things that remind me of you.

Happy 4th Birthday

photo of the day: flowers delivered for you

Happy fourth birthday Sabrina!  

Today we celebrated your sweet little life.  As tradition we brought flowers, balloons (one for each year), and handmade cards to your grave site.  The kids tenderly laid the flowers and cards as we sang "Happy Birthday."  

Sophia excitedly let her balloon go and watched it fly away to you.  Abigail tied hers to a stick and placed it near your graveside.  But Ethan just couldn't let go and so he brought his home with him.  Watching my little ones with those balloons made me reflect on how each of us deal with grief differently and gave me a glimpse into their hearts.  

We completed our celebration with vanilla cupcakes dusted with candy cane sprinkles.  A dear friend prayed for "precious moments, beautiful surprises, and deep comfort."  These are the gifts God gave us today on your birhtday.  We love you and miss you every day.

  1. Tears. I love how you love Sabrina. And how you gently walk with your children through their grief journies. We can't wait to hug you in person. We've been excited all day about seeing you.
