Christi's 5th Angelversary

The day we've been dreading (the 5th anniversary of Christi's death) will be here tomorrow. Shayla will have a morning appointment to be fitted for braces. Shayne and I will do something, but we've yet to decide what we will do. I don't want to go to the cemetery; it's so hard and I know she's not there but in a much better place. We miss her terribly!
I was thrilled when Shayne's cousin sent me these two pictures a few weeks ago. I'd not seen them before, but I remember that family event. She told me Christi was not feeling well that day and I can now see that in these pictures.
Be well, Christi and FLY until we are together again!

Dear Angela, Something else I have been thinking about but didn't know whether to share it with you , but have decided I will after celebrating my youngest daughter's 5th birthday this week. You may not want to publish this on your blog but I don't know your email address.
When each of my children were born, I had long difficult deliveries and always stayed in the hospital for a few days following their births. In that very special new mum time when I am unable to sleep, I have held each of my babies against my chest and prayed for all mums everywhere and for children entering and leaving the world. I was always aware that while I was experiencing such happiness, others may be experiencing loss and sadness. So Martha was born May 10th 1997 and Grace was born 15th September 2006. That means I was praying for you and Christi when she was born and again when she passed away. It sent shivers down my spine and that thought has given me a real connection and love for your family. I hope you get through tomorrow alright and that you will have some sweet moments along with the bittersweet ones.
love jo (uk) x
