When the calendar is turned to April, it used to be such a happy time with the beginning of Spring and planting flowers. Now, when the calendar is turned, I can't help but feel anxious. My Dad passed away on April 19th and we lost our precious Jennifer two years ago today. It just doesn't seem like after such a loss that time would move on, but it does. I do know that Dad and Jennifer are happy and healthy now. I am happy for them. My sweet Mother used to tell me that God picks the prettiest flowers for His garden.....maybe that is why He chose to call them Home in April. Today is a sad day for those of us who loved Jennifer so much and miss her so much. I know that in reality it should be a happy time, knowing that she is with her Heavenly Father. In my heart, I know that Jennifer is happy now and would never choose to come back. I am so grateful for all the wonderful memories that I have of her. She will always be with me and I know that we will be together again.
