It's your birthday today. I've got to admit that most of my missing you feelings seem as though they lie a little dormant and then moments like this -thinking of your birthday-getting choked up, makes me realize that those feelings haven't changed. We miss you an incredible amount and quite honestly, it still hasn't sunk in yet that you are not here living life with us.
Today we celebrate you, Heidi Marie. We remember what a special sister, aunt, and friend you were. You were an incredible listener, had amazing integrity, could be quite silly and probably one of the most loving and faithful people I will ever know. You touched more people's life in your 25 years than many of us will in our whole lifetime.
There are some hard truths that I know and hurt to think of. I long for you to see what Henry is up to. You were always faithful at checking in on him. I long to have very import debriefing sessions post bachelor episodes-new season coming up -and most of all I really miss how intentional you were about knowing us on a deep and personal level.
But I do know that today you are celebrating your second birthday in heaven. For that I am hopeful. Happy 27th Birthday and can't wait til we can celebrate together again.
