March is difficult for us and I think it always will be. Our sweet Eden passed away two years ago today- March 30th, 2011. This day is that day our lives changed, the day our sweet pea went to heaven with Jesus where she is no longer struggling. What I wouldn’t give to have one more day with her.
Reagan has shown a big interest in Eden lately. We talk about Eden all the time but recently she’s been asking when Eden is coming home and where Eden is now. One day while she was sitting quietly on the chair in the living room she asked Scott- where is Eden. Scott said it was painful to explain that Eden was in heaven with Jesus. We realize that perhaps Reagan was far too young to have real memories of Eden but we continually hope and pray that she has some memory of Eden and some special twin connection. As we “disconnect” from all technology today and focus on Eden we will be sharing memories, looking at photos, doing special crafts and spending time together as a family. Though we are very transparent about our lives we hold this day March 30th as sacred. A time to be at peace, a time to be still and remember. We also turn our eyes to our Lord God who guided us through this journey. Without God’s grace and love we would be lost in a dark place. Thank you Lord for getting us through another year.
