Happy 3rd Birthday Shane

Most nights, I am thankful for sleep. Today, I woke up early. I looked at the clock, even though I didn’t really have to know what time it was. It was 3:00 am. Of course, it was. Today, is Shane’s 3rd birthday. That little stinker.

Dear Shane,

On the day you were born, our family was complete. You were beautiful and perfect. Your birth was the smoothest  of the three. I felt so much love on that day and every day I had with you.

One birthday is all we got to celebrate with you. Looking at pictures and seeing how happy and healthy you looked warms my heart. Your spirit comes through in those images. I can hear your sequels of joy. Feel your love.

We celebrate you today.

Chase and Ella were left in charge of planning your big day. They had so many ideas and plans. It seemed fitting to let them be in charge. Ella’s master plan is to tie your favorite toys onto balloons and send them up to you in heaven. Chase immediately squashed this idea, as it’s not “logically” possible. A few days later, he came up to me and said, “Mom, you know Ella’s balloon idea? It’s really a fantastic idea.”

Happy Birthday son. We miss you beyond words and thoughts.
