Harper's birthday



One year ago today our sweet girl was born.  I have said before that I would live all of it again if it was the only way I was meant to be her mommy.  I have been an emotional wreck the last couple of days so I will get on and write more about our plans for her birthday later. 

 I just wanted to share this song for my baby girl's first birthday in Heaven.  



The Dance by Garth Brooks

Looking back on the memory of 
The dance we shared beneath the stars above 
For a moment all the world was right 
How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye 
And now I'm glad I didn't know 
The way it all would end the way it all would go 
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain 
But I'd of had to miss the dance 
Holding you I held everything 
For a moment wasn't I the king 
But if I'd only known how the king would fall 
Hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all 
And now I'm glad I didn't know 
The way it all would end the way it all would go 
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain 
But I'd of had to miss the dance 
Yes my life is better left to chance
I could've missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance

Happy birthday in heaven, Harper girl! You are forever loved and missed. Don't forget to send your smile to your parents and little sister.<3

I'm lighting a candle in remembrance of your little girl today. Oh I love that cupcake. Thank you for making one for Kai on his day. :) Glad he shared a birthday with you. Love and light to you, your hubby and little Pooh bear. <3 <3 <3

Big Love, Big Acceptance - or so I say said...

Thinking of you and your family as you mark this big milestone with a mix of celebration and mourning.

Much love!

Happy Birthday sweet Harper! I have been thinking of you, your Mommy and Daddy.

Rhiannon, I wanted to send you something for her birthday, but there has been a postal strike here for weeks. I'll send it as soon as the strike is over.

I hope today has been as gentle as possible on you. The 1 year was a huge hurdle for me. Sending you lots of love.

Happy birthday sweet Harper.

That is one of my favourite songs, we sang it to our Jack the last night he was with us... And my blog title is one of the lyrics. Such a great song for this situation.
