December 31, 2010

I lay next to Addie as the clock turned to 6:00 a.m.
The fourth anniversary of the birth of my sweet baby girl.
I was softly rubbing her back as I whispered to her and told her how much I love her.
I told her "thank you" for allowing me to be her Mommy.
I kissed her sweet little face and I thanked God for trusting me to be the Mommy of one of HIS most precious angels.


I owe it to Addie to be there each December 31 at 6:00 a.m. to remind her of how precious she is and how much she is loved.
I owe it to her to hug her and kiss her and to make up for those minutes when she was not celebrated and when no one treated her like the angel that she is.
I will always spend my life making up those minutes, the minutes before she was placed next to me.

December 31, 2010 - the fourth anniversary of the beginning of our new lives.
The day was amazing.
We were a million miles away from all of our worries, fears and heartache and Addie's Birthday was celebrated in a way that truly honored her.
