Happy 5th birthday, Brenham

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Brenham Jay, 
Happy 5th birthday, son! These letters are always so hard for me to write.  I stared at a blank screen for a long time. When I write your bothers' birthday letters I write about the new things they're doing, how much they've grown, what they like to play with and share lots of new pictures. I don't know theses things about you and I don't have any new pictures.

I don't know who your friends are, but I know you play with angels.
I don't know what kind of things you like to do, but I know you have more fun that we could ever imagine.
I don't know what you look like now, but I know you have been made perfect.
I don't know what kind of  birthday party you would have wanted, but I know you are having a great time rejoicing in Heaven today and everyday. 

And I know that I love you.
And I know that I miss you every single day.
And I know that I will see your sweet face again someday.

Until that day, we remember you and celebrate you and your short, yet meaningful, and purposeful life. Your birthday holds so many memories for me and I'll cherish those forever.  
I love you sweet Brenham. I'm so proud to be your mommy.
