This is truly a bittersweet time of year for me. Don't misunderstand, I'm so grateful to have Lillian...and I wouldn't turn back the hands of time even if I could. It is wonderful to see her grow and do new things, but it also reminds me of those past days of sickness, stuggling to live, the fear and worry. I will try to just be grateful and not wonder about the future. I will be glad that hospitalizations have been minimal and nothing compared to those years we've already experienced. God is good, and we will celebrate his goodness, tomorrow...Thanksgiving and also Miss Lillian's birthday. It is hard to conceive that four years have gone by.
Dear Sweet Girl,
I love you so much, I'm so thankful for your smile and your love. I'm sorry when I'm impatient and don't understand what you want from me. I'm sorry when frustration over takes me. You and your sisters give me such great joy. I pray you continue to grow and learn and most of all walk in fellowship with Jesus, He loves us most of all. Happy Birthday, Lil' Bil, I look forward to another year. Mommy
