In truth: The day was so lovely and perfect. Our lives are filled with so much support, friendship, and love it is astounding. This was the first time we got to really talk with and meet the first responders who were there that day. We picked a spot on the grass where her body was laying while they worked on her.
The fire station grass is sacred ground. It was more difficult than I expected to be there, with all the same people, but not be laying on the cement in shock.
I'm so thankful I will have something beautiful to look at every time I walk by, drive by, or go to church next door. These men were amazing. What we've been through and have overcome is amazing. Life is amazing. Children are amazing. Friends are amazing. The power of love is amazing.
My Lucy is amazing.
Did you have a party in heaven today?
Did all of your angel friends stop by to play?
Did you swing from the trees and fly through the sky?
Did you come to our house in the hopes to say "hi?"
A few weeks ago I met these nice men at the park
They were there when you choked, when my world went so dark.
We had the idea to meet at the fire station
To have a memorial of our separation
The local Home Depot donated these bright, gorgeous flowers
For you, my Lucy girl, their beauty holds powers
What powers could bright, beautiful flowers hold?
The same powers you have, far more precious than gold.
The power to bring strangers together
The power to make it through the stormiest weather
The power to love, the power to give
The power that makes each day worthy to live
Happy Birthday my dear, my daughter, my love
I send loves, hugs, and kisses to you up above.
