LAST YEAR ON THIS DAY
WE CELEBRATED 3 BIRTHDAYS IN OUR FAMILY…
FORD, (my brother) POPPI (my father in law), MAURA (my sister in law)
This year…two of those Birthdays, Poppi’s and Maura’s, will be celebrated in Heaven AND on Earth.
As much as I love to write and always have, I am at a loss for words for how this day feels.
Imagine looking across the beach…at the end of the day…when the sunset is at it’s absolute most beautiful..the kind of colors that make you reach for your camera but that you can truly never capture. You can stick your toes in the water and feel the excitement of the surf, and the life it brings…but the sunset eludes…it leaves before you have time to grab your camera and you are left to remember how it made you feel…and how it made you feel…. was like you are perfect…
….because it is perfect. and beautiful. and precious.
I Wish FORD…..
all HAPPY BIRTHDAY today…and THANK them for bringing such life to their days..
all THREE possess the ability to push past that last mile…bring life to any party…or should I say…bring the PARTY to life..and all THREE…wherever they are..are ALWAYS…
ALWAYS IN MY HEART.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY. I LOVE YOU. XO

That is the sweetest post I have ever read and the way you described the sunset is so true. I’m crying while I write this Lesli because I know that sunset all too well. It is so empty to celebrate birthdays without the birthday recipient present. The first few years I celebrate my son’s birthday without him, then I realized how difficult it was for his siblings so now on his birthday I do something special for myself, so that I can try to enjoy the day rather than be sad. It’s so hard. I know this past year has bee a very hard one in your family with those special people departing but know that you have many who support you and are here for you when you need them. We love as deeply as we grieve so it takes awhile to get our bearing after they are gone. oxoxoox
Thank you Lisa, from the very bottom basement section of my heart…I thank you.xo You give the best “hugs”.

Aww. What a beautiful tribute and expression of love. I’m sure Poppi and Maura can feel it.
