September birthdays


Happy Birthday!
To all those wonderful people I know with September birthdays!
May these balloons of happy birthday find you from afar!
****
To my two adorable neices

****
To my wonderful sister Kelly
who also lives far away in Oregon
****
To my awesome stepson Westley
currently in Washington State
(Happy birthday today!!!)
****
To my beautiful little cousin Sierra

****
To (yes myself but I am not far away :) )
****
And to my son Joshua
His big 13 in a week
How I wish I could celebrate with him
He is beyond birthdays
eternal
****
Ok...stop reading now if you don't want to be depressed....

Joshua sure loved his birthday
hmmm...enchilada dinner was usually his favorite
His excitement was always contagious
I don't know what he would want this year
I don't know what new interests he would have now.
2 years ago he would have wanted an ocarina
or zelda games, or and electric scooter. :)
He would have grown and changed in these two years
Who would he be today if he was still here?
****
September used to be a month we shared
Our birthday month
Now it is bittersweet
I can't celebrate my own birthday without missing him
I have shed many tears this month already without him
****
So happy birthday my son in Heaven
If you are aware of what we are doing
I hope you have a big smile knowing how much we love you
knowing how much we will aways celebrate the day you came into our lives

Happy Birthday to everyone.

God Bless Joshua. When the clouds were moving on his birthday, he was blowing out his candles.

Sal, I've been thinking about you and Joshua all month long,(had no access to internet since last week though, and shame on me for not checking your blog for such a long time or I would have written last week as I knew Josh's birthday was approaching. I wondered how you would remember and celebrate this year....if you would send up balloons again or have a birthday cake or what. I've wept with you and brought you all close in my thoughts and prayers. I continue to do so. Missing you all.
Love, Kelly :D
