TODAY YOU WOULD BE 24!
So many questions:
In losing a child many questions and “what ifs” come to mind. Every day we ponder something. As a parent it is just normal. But on birthdays the questions ring LOUDER.
Like what would Jenae look like now, how tall would she be. Would she have gone to school to become a marine biologist? Would she have obtained a job at Sea World like she dreamed of? Or, would she have gotten a job in Santa Fe? Would Jenae be driving around the sparkly pink VW bug she hoped for? Today on her birthday would she want to celebrate her birthday with a Oreo shake?
So many other questions come to mind, but I don’t question that she is in paradise with her Lord and Savior. This gives us hope and a great excitement that one day we will see her again.
I am grateful for the years and times we had with her. They are a great blessing. Glory be to God. We are thankful to be chosen by God to be Jenae’s parents. It was a unmerited privilege and blessing.
Many times we can live life and take it for granted. When you lose someone so close to you, your perspective changes and you appreciate everything more deeply. What we have today can be gone tomorrow in many different ways. No matter how hard life can be, there is always something to be grateful for, if you have Christ. Every day is a gift from above and there is purpose.
So Happy Birthday baby girl. You are thought of often and missed everyday.
We Love you “Mostest Mostest” and beyond…
