It has been 4 years since that April 7th when Maddie Spohr left this world. 4 years. I just can’t put into words how sad and unbelievable that is. You are missed and remembered Maddie.
Today I will honor Miss Maddie by thinking about Heather, Mike and Annie and sending lots of love to them on this very difficult day. I will honor her by remembering what a wonderful little girl she was. I will honor her by wearing purple and thinking about all the lives she touched in her short life and all the lives she still touches on a daily basis.
Please take a moment on this Sunday to think about the amazing Maddie and send some love to her parents and little sister. Lets surround them with love so they know we all remember their special little girl.
Today marks 3 years since the beautiful Madeline Spohr passed away. Today I am taking some time out to remember the delightful, beautiful Maddie and surrounding her mom, dad and little sister with love and peace as they mark this sad anniversary.
Maddie, you touched my heart in a very special way. I wear purple for you and remember those big blue eyes and that infectious smile that often lit up my computer screen as I read your Momma’s stories about you. You touched a lot of lives in your short time on this earth in a very deep and profound way. You will never be forgotten.
Heather, Mike and Annie, I hope today you find some peace in knowing there are a lot of us out here remembering your sweet girl right along with you and holding you all close in our hearts.
Please head on over to Heather’s blog today and let the Spohrs know you are thinking about them.
It has been 2 years.
2 years since a Mom and Dad lost the most amazing thing in their lives, their daughter.
2 years since the world lost the light and life of an incredible little girl.
For 2 years we’ve been missing Madeline Spohr. We’ve been supporting her family in every way we can. Lifting them up when the weight of a world without her seems too much to bear. 2 years.
On this April day, 2 years ago, we said good-bye to Maddie.
On this April day we remember the beauty, light, love and strength beyond her years that was the Amazing Maddie.
We love you. We miss you. We will remember you always.
Please stop by Heather’s blog and let Heather, Mike and Annie know that you are thinking about them today. They need love on this day. Please consider making a donation today in memory of one truly awesome little girl. Heather and Mike are raising money for the March of Dimes this year in preparation for walking in Maddie’s honor again this year or you can make a donation to the charity set up in Maddie’s name, Friends of Maddie.
November, 11 2010. Veterans Day. Remembrance Day. Maddie’s Birthday. Today would have been, should have been, Madeline Spohr’s 3rd birthday. I should have woken up this morning to a beautifully written blog post by her mom, Heather Spohr, proclaiming and celebrating the awesomeness that would have been Maddie at 3 years old. Instead I wake up with a heavy, sad heart wondering why. Instead I wake up asking how I can honor Maddie and show her parents my love and support.
Today is about celebrating the life of a little girl who touched the lives of so many. Whose life has inspired so many. Whose smile and angel eyes could light up a computer screen like no other. Today is about supporting Heather, Mike and Annie as they go through yet another birthday without Maddie. Today is about remembrance and celebration and honoring the life of Maddie.
To celebrate Maddie’s birthday I will be making a donation to Friends of Maddie and my daughter I will be taking a trip to the park in Maddie’s honor. We will swing on the swings and feed the ducks and place a purple flower in the lake. I ask you to do something for Maddie today as well, please visit Heather’s blog and leave a quick message letting Heather know you are thinking about Maddie today, celebrating Maddie today.
Happy Birthday, Maddie.
Sometimes I am reminded of just how unfair life can be, how heartbreaking life can be. Today I was a reminded.
No parent should ever have to say “today is the day my child has been gone longer than she was alive”, never. My heart is heavy with sadness for Heather, Mike, Annie and the rest of their family. My thoughts are filled with thoughts of a little girl who has touched my heart in so many ways. Maddie, you are missed and loved by so many.
Please say a pray, send a thought, send some love to Heather and Mike today and take a moment to remember the wonderful Madeline.
