Three Years

I know I say this every year, but where does time go?

I CANNOT even believe that it's been three years.  Well, three years and a day to be exact. 

I managed to make it through yesterday without having a nervous breakdown.  We got new flowers put out at the cemetery.  Cameron admired the flowers and the light reflector that we have out there, and kept pointing to them and Bailey's headstone, and kept saying "pretty".  We talked about her sister (as we normally do) and she babbled on (like she normally does). 

We talked about how different this year is.  The past 2 years, we have put flowers out, and then we would go to my Mamaw's house and visit with her.  Last year on Bailey's birthday, we were having her and her headstone moved next to where Mamaw was to be buried.  I never in a million years imagined that a year later, Mamaw would be next to her, and we would be "visiting" her there.

It's just hard to believe, but it's our life.

I felt the overwhelming love from all the facebook messages and texts yesterday.  That's one of my biggest fears...that she'll be forgotten.  And the love we received yesterday told us she hasn't been.

It was a day of love, reflection, and remembrance.

Happy Third Birthday in Heaven, sweet Bailey!  We miss you so much!
