I want you to know that yesterday was just for you.
Your Daddy and I dreamt of the four year old you and how you would spend a perfect day.
I shut the door to an overflowing laundry room and we ate out every meal.
There was leaf-pile jumping and sword fights with sticks (for the boys, of course), flying on swings and rolling down hills.
We loved each other to pieces yesterday Hadley, just for you.
One day I will be able to gather you in my lap and whisper thanks for what you have done for our family.
How in falling apart, we were bound together stronger. How your Daddy and I would drop just about anything for a park or a petting farm or a day in the sun.
You taught us about living with our eyes open and dreaming of the next day as they close.
I see you in every rainbow, pink sunset and silent snowfall. You are the beauty I used to rushed passed.
My mind will always drift to what life would be like with you here and reach for someone to squeeze when I do.
And I will never stop missing you, warmed by your spirit as much as I am hollowed.
But I promise, with every bit of my broken heart you are holding together, that we will honor your life by living every breath of each day.
As much as our hearts hurt, we will remember the moment you left us for the gifts you gave, not the hole that was left behind.
And we will soak it up baby girl, because we only get to do this once.
For two days or 100 years, life is a gift.
I will live it forever grateful I was chosen to carry the treasure that is you.
Love in this life and beyond,
