Peyton's 1st Birthday

In just a few minutes it will be April 5th, 2009. I was looking forward to celebrating Peyt's first birthday. I was going to give him one of those little cakes and just let him enjoy it. Instead tomorrow our family and close friends will celebrate that day that our sweet angel came into our lives here on earth while he celebrates with Jesus in Heaven. I have to say that he will probably have a much better time than I will. I keep remembering this time last year. My lil miracle came into this world at 27 weeks on April 5th 2008 at 6:42PM. He was 1lb 9 oz and 13 inches long. I fell in love as soon as I saw him. I don't want to sound ungrateful. I am soo blessed and thankful for those 4 precious months with him. I just get selfish sometimes and want to have him here. Please remember me and my family as we celebrate his birthday tomorrow.

I am so incredibly sorry to read this. I can not even imagine what you have went through! I have two boys, and the thought of losing them, terrifies me! So, I hurt for you, knowing how deep a mother's love is.

The wonderful thing, is, you know where Peyton is.. praise Jesus!!! Take comfort in that. That no matter what happens in this life or world, your baby is in Heaven. You never have to worry about that. Peyton is safe in the arms of Jesus!
From what you said in this post, it sounds like you are a Believer, also. I pray so! If you are, then you definitely know that when this life is over (and Heaven is our destination!), you can go be with your precious one.. and Jesus Christ. You will NEVER be separated from them again. This life is but a vapor in time.

I pray the Lord's love, strength, healing & restoration and His peace that surpasses all understanding.

God bless,
Joylynn
