"If you know someone who has lost a child

or lost anybody who's important to them,

and you're afraid to mention them because you think you

 might make them sad by reminding them that they died,

they didn't forget they died.

You're not reminding them.

What you're reminding them of is that

 you remember that they lived,

and that's a great, great gift."

-Elizabeth Edwards

Missing our girl.

The details of her birthday wash over me and in a moment, I am right back in that room--meeting my daughter, saying goodbye before hello.  I didn't know how we would make it through that first year, but we did.  The Lord has given us the strength to endure another.  So hard to believe that two years have passed since we held her in our arms.  Today hurts.

Maggie girl, we love you so.

Celebrating you today, sweet daughter. 

We'll meet you there . . .
