A Birthday Prayer

Posted by Aunt Tricia on May 20, 2012 at 9:01 pm

“Dear Jesus,

Today is Elijah’s 4th birthday. We miss him very much. Would you please give him a hug and a kiss from his mommy, daddy, aunts, uncles, grandparents, cousins, brothers, and sisters? We all are looking forward to the day when we can hug and kiss him for ourselves again, but until then we need you to do it for us. Also, Jesus, I want to thank you for taking care of Elijah for us. This world is not our home, and sometimes it is a very difficult place in which to live. Thank you that you took Elijah to our real home, and that he no longer has to deal with the “stuff” of this life. Even so, we miss him desperately. We long to be with him (with You, Lord). Thank you, Jesus.

Love, Weeble’s Aunt Tursuh.”

Happy Birthday, Weeble

Posted by Mommy on at 6:08 pm

We had a little party for what should have been your fourth birthday yesterday. It was so sad, of course, without you there, but we wanted to celebrate that four years ago, we held you in our arms for the first time. Kissed you for the first time. Saw your blue eyes for the first time. And although we didn’t know it would be so short, began to enjoy our days with you here in this life.

We were so blessed to have you in our lives. The memories we have with you are not nearly enough, but they are precious. We love you very much and miss you with a mighty ache that wracks us to the core of our being. We watched some of your videos today, and laughed instead of crying. You always made me smile, and you still do, even through the grief. Happy birthday, sweet Weeble.
