I haven't been here for several months. Lily should be celebrating her first birthday on Sunday.
That raw pain has been gone for so long and I just feel it creeping back in - not nearly as bad but just such a void.
I hear that the days leading up are much worse than the actual day, I just can't wait to get this last first over with. This week has been such crap - and it has been rainy and miserable to boot!
Thanks for listening,
I am so sorry that you have to remember Lily rather than throw a nice party for her.
I just want you to know that I am thinking of you and keeping you and Lily and the rest of your family in my prayers.
I am sure that she and Damien are best of buddies up there.
Hugs to you sweetie.
I am so sorry that you are having a rough week. I am thinking of you and your family. I am sure she has lots of angel friends watching over her.
If you need to talk give me a call.
Hugs to you!

Thank you Robin and Shelly,
It is amazing the wonderful friends I've made through this board. The two of you are a top the list.
I just received a flower delivery from someone completely unexpected today. It feels so nice to be thought of.
Yes, the birthdays are very tough -- you have my heart.
You're right -- it has certainly been my experience too that the time leading up to my angels' birthdays has been worse than the actual days.
We're here for you -- keep us posted -- vent whenever you need to.
Thank you everyone.
As expected the actual day went much better than anticipated. There were tears but I enjoyed a wonderful day with my DH and DS.
Glad to hear you made it through, but sorry you had to go through it. Here's hoping the sun shines brightly on you today!
Hugs hon, I am sorry I did not reply to this sooner. I'm glad the day went better than expected, but definitely a hard day.
