My sweet angel, I hope you are having a good morning in heaven today. I'm sure all of your friends are celebrating and singing and dancing on this special day. I am too. We will be having a feast tonight for dinner, prime rib, in your honor. I wish you could be here to have some with us. Maybe you will get to chow down on some juicy meat in heaven. Enjoy your day, I'm sure there will be quite a party. You deserve all things that your heart wants, today and every day. I am thinking about you now and always. I miss you. Happy Birthday, Payton!
I am really struggling not being able to hold and kiss my girl today. Although in the back of my mind, I knew her little body was getting tired, I expected Payton to be with us for her 10th birthday. We knew there was never a guarantee that we'd have another day, another week, another month, another year, but when she kept beating all the odds...4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9...why not 10? I just don't like that she's gone. I never will, but I try to imagine how much fun she will be having today in such a wondrous place, and I know she feels my love. I will be savoring the tasty dinner tonight and know that she will be smiling. I hope each of you can spoil yourself today with a special treat in Payton's honor - something that really makes your eyes bug out of your head and makes you loose all self control - like Payton did at her party last year.
