A Time For Joy

      July 14th is an important date for our family. The past two years it has been an overwhelmingly sad day. Like pull the covers over your head and have a pity party kind of sad. 

     Today I woke up feeling blah. I have dreaded this day for quite a while. If God had allowed us to keep our baby girl, she would've been two years old. I started my day with a short pity party. Then I made a choice. A choice for joy. A choice to celebrate. 

     For the last couple of years, one of our birthday traditions is to get cupcakes from Big D's for after dinner. This afternoon, I chose to buy cupcakes to celebrate our Liana. 

      Today I chose to celebrate the joy and excitement we felt the 14 weeks I carried her. 

     I love you, Liana Elise! I'm so thankful for each second God gave us with you. I look forward to the day I'm reunited with you and can finally see your beautiful face. You are always in my thoughts and my heart. 

“I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.”~Psalms 27:13-14
