My beautiful Averie,
How has another year gone by already? It seems like just yesterday that we loved you and then lost you. Our hearts forever broken.
Today the snow fell like it did two years ago the day you were born. I cried remembering how worried I was that they were going to transpot you to another hospital in the storm. Little did I know that was the last of my worries.
I dreamt about you the other night. You were here with us and Isabella. It was a strange dream but I was so happy you were in it. That’s the first time since you passed away that you visited me in my dreams. Please come visit me again.
Today’s celebrations for you got canceled because of the storm. After feeling incredibly sad and guilty that we weren’t able to honor you the way I wanted to, I realized it’s not about any of that. This day is about you and how much we love you. It’s about how many lives you’ve touched and continue to touch. The imprint that you have left on all of us. Not having a big celebration with all the bells and whistles doesn’t change that.
Thank you sweetheart for choosing me to be your Mommy. I will never know why you were taken from us so soon, or why your life had to be so short. I do know though, that until the day I die, I will love you and celebrate you every single day. Your life may have been short but you will always live on through me, your Daddy and little sister.
I love you always and forever. Until the day I see you again sweet girl.
Your Mommy ❤❤
