Merry Christmas

Today has been bittersweet. We had a wonderful Christmas morning with Marian, James, ourselves and my brother, Paul. The kids were incredibly spoiled this morning, and we enjoyed watching it. Afterwards, we went to my mom's house to spend the day eating, visiting, watching movies, and the like.

We did miss our little girl today very much. We had purchased a couple of gifts for her, one of them from Santa Claus - a bouncy seat, so we could take her from room to room with us without having to haul the swing around. I seemed to fidgit for most of the day, looking for something to do. I'm finding it difficult to go from having a routine and system of doing things every three hours to not having anything to do.

I can't write anymore tonight. I find it hard to put all my feelings into words. At times, I am still in shock.

One last thing though.... I've had a couple of people ask me about donations in lieu of flowers. Flowers or donations are appreciated. Please make your donations to either The Ronald McDonald House or Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep in Josephine's name.

I have been following along on your little angel's life here on your blog. I am so sorry for the loss but I am also grateful for all that you have gained from having her in your life, if only for a short while. Hugs Lisa L.

I am so sorry that your precious baby girl is gone from your family, for now. What a blessing to know that she is safe in the arms of our Saviour. I know firsthand the loss your are feeling. She will forever be in your hearts.

I am so sorry for the loss of your Miss Josephine, such a sweet little angel. I am sure no words can express the sorrow that you feel at present but "Joy cometh in the Morning" and we are grateful for the great Plan of Salvation and for the reuniting with loved ones and for the family that surrounds little Miss Josephine now. May the Lord bless you and watch over you and your family, best wishes from a sister in the Gospel.
