Happy 1st Birthday Snowflake!

I've known for a while that this day were coming. It's hard though, no matter how hard you try to prepare yourself for it you're never really ready. All week I've been on edge, loosing it when I least expect to. But as much as I wish this day were able to be different, I know it's not, so I'm trying to put on my smile and remember that it's still a day to celebrate.

A friend of mine had a baby a year ago today. He was very close to my heart and meant the world to me. I loved him as though he were my own. He was here for a very short time and left for heaven to become the angel that he truly is at a mere five and a half months. Although he was on this earth for a short amount of time he will never be forgotten. So in memory of what would have been his first birthday I leave this...

The world may never notice
If a Snowdrop doesn't bloom,
Or even pause to wonder
If the petals fall too soon.
But every life that ever forms,
Or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way
For all eternity.
The little one we long for
Was swiftly here and gone.
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on.
And though our arms are empty,
Our hearts know what to do.
Every beating of our hearts
Says that we love you.

That post made me sad. I have lerned of so many babies dying lately and it breaks my heart. I can't help but fear that my child could be next. I hate to even say those words. That was a very sweet post. My thoughts are with you. Hugs!
