A Bittersweet Birthday

My stepchildren are 15 years old today. We are going to visit my stepdaughter's gravesite later this afternoon and then take her twin brother out for his birthday dinner. This is her second birthday in heaven.

Bitter. Sweet. Bittersweet.

Happy Birthday ~T~. Only one more year and you will be driving!!

Happy Birthday Manders. We miss you more than words can say.

See what I mean by bittersweet?

~ xoxo ~

I remember when you posted on peas about Amanda passing away. So sad.

Sarah...I've been lost as to what to say to you. I haven't experienced what you and Mr. H have... I know you loved Manders w/ all your hearts and I know it is so difficult.

I guess all I can say is celebrate the child you still have with you and celebrate the life well-lived of Amanda.

And it sounds like you made plans to do just that. I hope the day was just as you had hoped.



p.s. I didn't know they were twins....
