Yes, my traveling man is 35 today. Happy, happy birthday J.W. I don’t believe birthdays end when someone you love dies. SO, as long as I live…WE CELEBRATE!
I find it unbelievable that this is your third birthday in Heaven. I was talking to a “friend” (I know you are reading between the lines) the other day and she said I must be “flat out wrong” on the number of your birthdays in Heaven since you have only been gone two and a half years. I tried to explain that is what happens when someone dies mid year and their birthday is January 3rd. While I am not known for my math skills…I am a math maven in comparison. You would have loved it! Just saying…
I’d love to be a visitor in Heaven today to see how birthdays are celebrated. I like to believe there’s cake for everyone, champagne, balloons, and party favors. The gift is being in Heaven. Someday I will see for myself. Please tell God, I’d like cake and a small crown (nothing gaudy) for my heavenly birthdays. And let him know I’m in no rush even though I’d love to see you…up close.
I know you are experiencing Joy with a capital J…all pain is gone. Of course that makes me happy and provides peace BUT being a MAMA (I see your eyes rolling) I miss you like Crazy (with a capital C). So much has happened since your last birthday but you know that so there’s no need to repeat. Things are changing even as I type this. Just CRAZY!
You have been the BEST Guardian Angel I could ever ask for. Who knew 35 years ago when I brought you into this world that you would now be watching over me instead of me watching over you. Okay…He knew. I appreciate every God Wink you send my (our) way. Your sense of humor comes through loud and clear…not always at a good time…but I still appreciate it. I appreciate you.
I love and miss you. Big Daddy Dawg does too (he gets teary occasionally which I know must tickle you). Please give grandpa a big hug from me (its been a long time).
Happy, happy birthday Sweet pea. Watch for your balloons. Batman balloons are not easy to find but they will soon be headed your way!!
Rock it out in Heaven with your new friends birthday boy!! Peace out my precious one.
Much love from your Mama and BDD.
