Alexandra's Footprints

Alexandra's Footprints

1 year ago....

My Dearest Little Alexandra,
1 year ago - you changed my life. Maybe I was taking things for granted, maybe I wasn't loving the way I could, I'm not sure, but after losing you - things have been so different. I have been trying to be a better person (doesn't always happen) but I think of you looking down at me from heaven and I want you to be proud of me. Still believing I'm teaching you right and wrong. I don't know, it sounds kind of silly but I still think this way.
I will post pictures later as I haven't really collected myself.
We had the family over yesterday which was really nice. Everyone brought an ornament for your tree outside - we all went out and placed them on your tree. It was peaceful. You truly are loved and missed.
Today, Daddy, Tommy & I pretty much just hung out. Having some good family time. Please visit us soon - we miss you and need to feel you close by. You will always be part of this family, so don't stay away too long.
You are loved & missed everyday Peanut!
Hugs & Kisses!
Love, Mommy! xoxoxo

Alexandra be close to your mommy, daddy and brother. You are deeply missed by many. I hope you have a happy birthday in heavan today.
Michelle you are amazing, I am hoping you have had as peaceful day as possible. I know Alex and Jay are up there right now looking down at us and I know they smile because they are proud of us. They will be waiting for us to come to be with them again. Until that day we have to do what we have to, to make sure we make it back to them.
Much love hun.
