Five Years

xandria001Five years ago, our little Angel went to Heaven. She was a bright, shining star who had just turned two when tragedy took her home to be with God.

As time goes on, it has become less painful… there is less blame to place on oneself and others. She is never forgotten, not her smile, her laugh, her tiny hugs, her bright blue eyes.

She truly was an Angel and we thought called home much too soon. We will never know (nor is it our place to question) why she died so young. But we did a lot of questioning, crying and being angry for a very long time.

Now I see her soul in my youngest daughter who came to be a year after Xandria left us. I see her smile lighting up L.C.’s face and the same twinkle in her eyes. While far different children, genetics are showing through. That smile reminds me that life isn’t always easy, but it is always worth the fight.

We Miss You and will never forget you!

    Oh, Jamie. I’m so sorry! I didn’t know you had lost a little girl. What a beauty.

  5. I didn’t know. I hope her memory can now give you comfort rather than pain. We never expect these things to happen.

    With love and a hug!
