Seven Years in Heaven

We celebrated Thomas' birthday like we usually do and took balloons to the cemetery.  Emmaline was so proud when she shouted out "it's my brothers birthday!!" while picking out balloons at Party City!

I love that Turner and Emmaline understand their big brother's place in our family.  Over the past year (at different times) I've had to comfort each of them as they were crying because they "missed baby Thomas."

Thomas' birthday day was fun, but this day, his death day, is still hard for me.  It took seven years before I was able to work on his birthday, but I still need this day to myself.  Our life is crazy busy and wonderful, but once a year I let myself have this day to be sad.

"The Lord is close to the broken hearted, he rescues those whose spirits are crushed." Psalm 34:18 NLT
