It is so hard to believe that my baby would have been 36 years old today, harder to believe that she has been gone for eight years. I miss her every second of every day! She was truly the light of my life and she touched so many lives of others.
When you lose a child, you think that you will never be able to breathe again....you think that your world has just stopped.....which it seems like it did. With the love and grace of God, you get the strength to go on....knowing that it comes from Him! You are so grateful for the promise that you will be with them again.
I do my best to keep her memory alive. We still have the Jennifer Project in her honor. I know that she would be pleased that we are doing this. ACH was such a huge part of her life....she would love knowing that we are trying to make hospital stays a little brighter for the kids. I am still sending sunflower seeds each year to be planted in her memory.....I cannot see a sunflower, without thinking of her.
Happy Birthday, Jennifer!
