5 years

I feel like I've said everything that can be said about my Nicholas and Olivia - their birth, their life, their death, their purpose.  Today marks 5 years since I gave birth to twins on their father's birthday.  I've never said that yet.  Parents always marvel at the passage of time, but we still marvel at the widening gap between knowing them and living without them.

This picture is from Sabrina's 5th birthday.  I did not get a chance to celebrate this milestone with her either because I was with her brother in the hospital.  I am sad about that too.

We will celebrate this day and remember.  There will be balloons and cards and cake.  There will be laughter and memories and love.

Happy Birthday, Nicholas & Olivia. Even though you are missed and we so often speculate how tall you would be by now and what mischief you'd be into, I am so thankful that I had time to spend with you the short time you were with us. I treasure those times in my heart always. Love, Gramma
