Payton, today we would have celebrated your 8th birthday. I know you would be running around with all of us acting crazy and dancing in the living room. Your beautiful auburn hair all over the place like your sister’s and mine. We would have had a party celebrating you! But no party here I could give you could compare to the party God is giving you.You are with the creator of the Heavens and the Earth doing his mighty work. I have been told that you are my angel who watches down on me. Maybe so, but I can’t find scripture that backs that up, so I believe that you have more important things to take care of waiting in Heaven for us. I love you.
The love in my heart for you moves my soul. For all three of my children. Today is your day just as they have their day. Happy 8th Birthday! You will be celebrated with a balloon release as we always do and a little prayer. There is always sunshine on your day and I am so thankful for that. Payton, you have changed my life and I am so thankful to be your mom. You had a purpose on this Earth just as we all do but even more important one in Heaven that God needed you sooner. With grief comes lots of mixed emotions but you are a ray of sunshine in my hope and joy that I cherish through it all to come.
He will heal what has been wounded and restore my broken soul. He brings me peace not because I have handled this on my own and figured it all out, but because of Christ.
These beautiful roses were a gift from a beautiful friend who holds a special place in my heart. We met after I lost my sweet girl but she has been an amazing friend who remembers Payton and honors her with me in such a loving way. Thank you dear friend for loving me and Payton!
