As we approach our first Christmas without you, I miss you desperately. My first thought in the morning is always you. Remembering you is easy….we do it everyday. But missing you is a heartache that never goes away. I miss your voice, I miss your smile, I miss your smell, I miss your touch. Learning to live without you is the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do…but you must know that each day, I still wear the smile that you gave me. I am so grateful for the incredible life that we shared and the extraordinary gifts that you have given me, most importantly our three “little birds.” And together we find reasons to celebrate each day. We feel your presence every step of the way… and tonight, like every night, we will fall asleep with you in our hearts.
