I cant believe my Tiffany would be 3 today.
DH asked me what I thought she would be doing today. I stated, probably coloring my walls, since the economy is so bad and money is so tight".
Today, I got up and lit a candle and song Happy Birthday to her. Later MEND sent 3 long white roses.
DH asked if anyone called to let us know they thought of Tiffany today and I said "no". He then asked if my feelings we're hurt and I said "no". I have "matured" in my grief...if that makes since. I don't care if people remember (I am touched when they do). I am not hurt if the phone doesn't ring or they don't leave a message on my facebook page. I understand their lives continue the clock keeps ticking and there is no reason for them to mark the 21st of June and the 21st of July on their calendar.
Unless a loss touches a person directly there is no need for a person to remember my loss or anyone else's loss.....I am OK with it!
Anyways...Happy Birthday to my sweet Tiffany Pooh. I still remember how you felt in my arms, your long skinny fingers (like your Aunt), you looked just like your Daddy, and you had your Mommy's toes.
