Happy Birthday Brenham

Today we celebrated your 4th birthday! It’s hard to believe you would have been FOUR years old, at times it seems like just yesterday and at other times it seems like a lifetime ago.

Do you know how much has happened in the past four years?! 9 months of dialysis and a kidney transplant for Mommy, 2 sweet little brothers who would have adored you as their big brother, a new house with lots of room you could have run around in, lots of fun family trips and great memories. Oh how we wish you were here with us to experience this life with us; we know you are having the best time of all in Heaven but we miss you more than words could ever say.

You were the very first thought I had when I woke up this morning. Do you know how special you are to be born on Leap Year Day?!
So many people remembered your birthday and sent sweet cards, notes and emails…it means so much to know you are remembered by so many!

We brought 4 balloons to the cemetery tonight and went out for pizza, we thought surely you would have loved pizza!

We celebrated YOU today and the impact you made in this world! Your story lead people to Christ, made people cherish, love, and live deeper, and gave people hope. Do you know how great that is? Your life had meaning in this world and we will never be the same.

Our celebration wasn’t close in comparison to the celebration you’re having in Heaven today; you’re having the best party imaginable. We can’t wait to join you someday!

Love you sweet boy.
Until we meet at Jesus’ feet…
