Happy Birthday, Sweet Maddie!
You would have been 5 years old today. It is easy for me to remember your birthday and how old you would have been because my daughter, Maya, was born just a few days before you. I wonder what you would have been like at 5. What sorts of fun stories would your mom be sharing with us on her blog? What would you have loved?
Today, I am sad that you are not here to celebrate your birthday with your friends and family. I’m sad that your mom and dad and little sister spend this day without you. Today, I will also smile because it is impossible not to see that mega watt smile of yours and not smile back.
Holding you and your family close in my heart on what would have been, what hold have been your 5th birthday.
