~Dear God~

Dear God,

Thank you for another year of life. You've given me so many blessings, starting with two sweet parents. Dad is already there in heaven with you....but you have given me another birthday with my mom here on earth. Thank you for that.

I know I often start my days with asking you to take her home to heaven to be with you, because of her condition...but hospice has made me see that that that is not my choice....but yours....and it will be in your own good time. And certainly, and selfishly, on days like today, I'm glad she's still here on earth. So, today, I'm taking her a cake and baby roses to celebrate my birthday with her...and to let her know how much I appreciate that she and my dad decided to bring me into this world. Thank you, sweet Lord.

Your humble daughter,

Oh yes. All in His own good time. There is a reason for it all. Still, I understand how you feel.

I hope you have a very happy and blessed birthday! :)
