Bittersweet

Today is my 8th Wedding Anniversary. Happy Anniversary to me! I titled this blog "Bittersweet" because this year it's a happy and sad time. Last year my friend gave birth to her daughter Ashlyn Skye on October 13th, 2008. I was soo excited to be sharing my anniversary with such a special person. Sadly, five months later on March 13, 2009 Baby Ashlyn passed away. This year, today it is hard to share my special day with her. Our circle of friends are a bit sorrowful and sad that she would have celebrated her 1st birthday today. I have come to terms with her death and I cannot wait to meet her one day when I arrive in heaven. It brings me great joy that one day I meet this wonderful person in heaven. The hard part now is having the strength to tell those around me without hurtful glances.

That is hard! I'm so sorry your day is filled with bittersweet memories. But we can take great joy in the fact that one day we will all be together again! Even if that is hard for people to rejoice with you in that one fact.

Happy Anniversary! Joy your day and remember all the sweet things about Ashlyn.
