Afterglow

I'd Like the memory of me to be a happy one,

I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when day is gone

I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,

Of happy times, and laughing times, and bright and sunny days

I'd like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun,

Of happy memories that I leave when life is done.

The above is what was printed on his memorial card from his funeral.

Another Birthday without you. Once again I'm sitting here playing the what if's in my mind. Going through the emotions of hurt, guilt, love, anger, all the stages that I went through the first year or so without you. All wrapped into one piece of emotion. The calm and peace that I also feel knowing that I will never have to worry about you. You were innocent and yet you had to leave me. I will never know why you had to leave the ONE thing I do know is that the void and hole that is in my heart will never be filled or replaced. It hasnt been for 7 yrs so far. I love you. Happy Birthday my sweet baby boy.  

Another Mothers Day...

Thank You for letting me be your mommy. You would be 5 years old this Mother's Day. Which means this would be my 5th Mother's Day without you and I wish I could say it gets easier but it doesn't. I miss you as much as the day you left me. The main comfort I get is that you are safe with Jesus and God and you will never feel pain only joy and love. Also, we will be together again one day. I'm afraid though that when I see you and hold you I won't be able to let go. I'm looking forward to that day and if Jesus came to get me today I would gladly take his hand. I don't want that to be too soon though. I have your brother and sister here that I want to raise first. Watch over them and make sure they stay safe. I love you my angel. Hugs and kisses sent to you.


Merry Christmas:

Another year without you. Another tear. There will always be a part of my life missing and nothing will ever fill that void. I can imagine you sitting in the chair with your brother and sister while I read to you tonight after a nice warm bath. Waiting for you to fall asleep so Santa can come. You would be almost 5 now! Wow how time flies by! 

I miss you so much and love you so much. Have a very Merry Christmas Baby Angel. I can only imagine the celebration that goes on every year.

His legacy
Elby Daniel  
Mike and I got married on March 27, 1999. We wanted to start a family right away. We ended up seeing a fertility specialist in Oct of 2001 after almost a year of Clomid with no luck and after a year and a half of trying on our own and no luck. We did another 2 years of inseminations and injections and nothing. 1 attempt at IVF and we had to cancel due to breakthrough bleeding. I had to take a break from it all. 

Oct. of '03 we tried IVF again. We found out 3 days after my birthday that we were pg. We were so happy. I loved every min. of my pregnancy and I love everything about my son. He is and always will be the love of my life (other than his baby brother and sister of course). 

When I went into pre-term labor with him at 22wks I couldn't believe it was happening. He was born into this world and the Lord took him home 7 min. later. I miss everything about him. 

He would be 2yrs old and into everything right now. I wonder what he would look like. What color his hair would be, what his voice would sound like, and what he would act like. I would give ALMOST anything to have him here with me now.

I miss you my son.

"Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us."  Romans 5:3-5
