Happy Birthday to Marie in Heaven...

Ahhh, Mama... what can I say?  You would have been three today...  I miss you so much, I am so proud of you, I love you more than I could ever say... 

Princess, did I ever tell you about when you were born?  You arrived right on time, your due date was March 3.  We went to the hospital and Dr J, who took such amazing care of you was there.



You were stubborn, a star gazer they said, and you wouldn't come until you were ready.  When you turned it was a whirlwind and arrived... the first night we were with you I couldn't sleep, I could not stop staring at that beautiful face.  Your dark hair, rosebud lips, those eyelashes.  This amazingly beautiful creation.  I could not stop looking at you Princess.

Spring came early the year you were born.  It was as if God had said, "Look at what I have made, have you ever seen anything so lovely?" and He smiled and the sun shined down and the He warmed the earth and the flowers bloomed and that is what I think of when I think of you Marie.  Sunshine and blooming flowers, butterflies and eternal summer... you are our paradise, and you live in Paradise now...

We named you Marie, which means "bitter" and Isabel, which means "concecrated to God" or "God's promise".  Looking back it was as if before you were even born we had given you back to Him.  You; our beautiful princess, our sassy girl, our joy, our borrowed child...

So today is your birthday and we are remembering you Marie, celebrating your life and wishing you were here but rejoicing in where you are... 

We love you so much Mama, Rie Rie, Daddy's Isabella, our Princess Marie Queen of the Universe...
