Happy Birthday Libby!

Today is Libby's birthday. She was born on Monday, December 8, 2003. We will not be celebrating with candles and a cake, balloons or toys. Kinda of sad.....but I don't think we will even make it to the cemetery this year. We had a wicked rain storm yesterday, and everyone has school and work and the cemetery closed at sunset...so not much of an option. I was able to keep the crying to a respectable minimum at church on Sunday. I think this year may just slide under the radar.
However, in memory of our little angel, I have my Christmas Angels on display and on the tree with "Libby's ornament".

I can't read it out loud without gasping with tears. I also have 3 or 4 beautiful blooms I will cut off my Libby Rose bush today.

I am working today, spending the day with little Kinders. Time with them, Big Daddy and the other kiddos will fill my heart.

Happy Birthday Libby Rose.


  1. My thoughts are with you today, Danell.

  2. I remember that year well. You are amazing--what a beautiful post!

  3. Thinking of you!! Wish I could have given you a hug!!

  4. I had a stillborn and when her birthday comes I just keep thinking that she would have grown up to be a brat like the other have and I feel a lettle better. That and chocolate. Love you...

  5. Hugs to you on your sweet girl's birthday. What an angel baby you were blessed with. I am sure she is watching over you!!
