Dear Evy:

promising to live a happy and simpler life in honor of my evelyn

Dearest Evelyn, In my quest to be happy, there has been one thing in particular that keeps making me sad. Who were you supposed to be? When would you walk? What were you going to look like when you were 3 or 21?

Well Evelyn, someone put it in perspective for me yesterday. She said you were exactly who you were supposed to be. You lived a wonderful 10 months and 9 days. You were my beautiful little girl. A mommy’s girl. You didn’t give smiles away easily and was always content if being held. You had an amazing belly laugh. You kicked your legs when you were excited. You were innocent. You were your own person and lived the life you were meant to lead.

You have touched me so deep and made my life wonderful. I am so blessed to have had the chance to love you, hold you and get to know you. Thank you for giving me those 10 months.
