2 years

I cannot believe that it has been 2 years since our sweet Emma was born.  So much has happened in the past 2 years, from learning our "new normal" after Emma was born, getting pregnant & miscarrying & now pregnant once again due in a few short weeks, to name the "big events".  There have been many, many difficult days throughout these past 2 years and yet gracefully we have also had many great days as well.  I only know that God's sufficient love & grace has gotten both Joshua & I to this point and I could not be more grateful.  He is an all loving God and although I have definitely had my moments of questions I know I wouldn't be where I am today without Him.  November 6 will forever be etched in our minds and hearts.  I will always get a cake from Wuollet's for $30 (pictures to come) and it will always be worth it to me :)  I think of our daughter daily but I know we will always do something special to celebrate Emma on her birthday.  Oh how we miss her so incredibly much, I just dont even have the words right now. 

To my sweet Emma,

I dont know where this past 2 years has gone.  Sometimes I feel like it has been so long and then there are days where I feel like you were born just yesterday.  We miss you so much and not a day goes by that we dont wish you were here.  I know you are perfect in heaven and cannot wait for the day to see you again.  We love you so much!  You are going to be a big sister soon and we are eagerly anticipating the arrival of your little sister.  I know you will be there with us, although it isnt as any of us would have hoped/imagined.  As we get closer to meeting your sister, I often wonder if she will look like you.  I know you will be so proud and we will be sure to tell her all about her proud big sissy. 

I miss and love you dearly Emma.  Happy 2nd birthday, what a joy it is to celebrate with Jesus! 

Love, Mommy & Daddy

I couldnt resist my favorite picture! 
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.  They will soar high on wings like eagles.  They will run and not grow weary.  They will wake and not faint.

*This was supposed to post yesterday on Emma's birthday, November 6, but I think I scheduled it wrong and it didnt work, hence me posting now :)  We had a "good" day yesterday, Joshua & I went out for a nice dinner and just enjoyed being with each other.  I plan to have my regular scheduled posts up soon along with a couple others!!  Have a great week!
