This day of life and day of death.
This day of love and day of loss.
This day of joy and day of sorrow.
This day of smiles and of tears.
This day of light and of darkness.
This day of fullness and of missing.
My heart will always miss the weight of you in my arms. My soul will always feels you close.
If I believe in a life after this, I must believe that my daughter is there. But where that is, I can't be sure and neither can you until you arrive. So until then, today is the day of my birth into this life and her birth into the next place.
The most sacred gift of gifts to be shared, a bond that can never be broken. You will live in my heart until eternity, Ruthie Lou. I have already loved you for a thousand years and I will love you a thousand more.
So, today we eat all the delicious food in your honor.
Happy birth-day to us.
I wish you were here to celebrate, life has never be the same without you.
I am mama of three beautiful babes; two sons whom I have the privilege of raising and my daughter who lived for 33 sacred days.
