Day 366

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HAZEL!
Each morning of her life at 4:10, the time of her birth, we would take a picture celebrating another day well lived...the triumph of the human spirit...family...miracles...the goodness of God...and the power of L-O-V-E. Today is Day 366, with our daughter, without our daughter; but we continue to celebrate.

On the morning Hazel had to leave us, there was a light beautiful snow. It just cleansed everything outside and made the world seem new. Everything had a faint beautiful glow. Since then I have taken snow as a "sign" from her that's she's near and loves us.


Luckily this winter we have had ridiculous amounts of snow as evidenced by our mailbox below. And although I hate shoveling, I can't help but think she's laughing somewhere.



Lastly, because of Hazel's uniqueness I know many of you were not able to witness her life in person. I just wanted everyone to see how incredible she was. How real she is. At the end of this video watch for the smile. She smiled!

video

And if you're questioning how she was able to live 7 days let me show you her fighting spirit. This is bath time so she's a little indecent, but it's adorable.

video

We want to thank everyone for helping us throughout this past year. We could not have made it this far without you. I hope you will go out and do a good deed for someone today, hug your kids a little longer, and tell the important people in your life that you love them. Also, if you need an excuse to eat cake you can say you're celebrating Hazel's birthday. She won't mind.

Kirstin, even though we haven't seen eachother in a while as we followed Hazel's story last year, it really left an imprint on our family. I find that I think of her often which might sound weird to you, but she has touched my heart and I find that as I think of her it motivates me to be a better mother. Thank you for sharing her with us. She is definitely an angel and definitely has two sweet angels for parents!

Maren and Blake said...

I can't believe it's already been is year. What a blessing. Her sweet spirit brings tears to my eyes everytime I see her picture. I love the videos. I bet you two are the proudest parents in the world, I would be.
