Letter to our Hailey:
“You are who you are, and you are what you are supposed to be.” H.A.E
You were just six years old when you said this out loud one day. I thought it was such a clever thing to say; something from the “out of the mouth of babes” category. Of course I had to share it on Facebook like most- my favorite place to share all the details of our lives. Specially anything to do with you & your sisters.
Funny quotes, sweet pictures, school events, family vacations…the list goes on. So many memories. It’s all there.
Looking back, I can clearly hear the annoyance in your voices & see the rolling of the eyes, “Mommy are you posting that on Facebook!?”
Why yes, yes I am.
Almost 6 years later, memories is all that I have left of you.
I can’t be thankful enough that I was one of those cheesy moms who took so many pictures. That proud cheesy mom who posted every note, card & quote. I don’t think I would of remembered it all.
Specially now, that everything is still a big blur. It’s been a year since you’ve been gone from us & we are still trying to make sense of it all.
You are who you are & you are what you are supposed to be?
Who are we now that you are gone? Where did you go? Was this the way it was supposed to be?
The only promise we can make, is that we will try & honor your life the best way we can. Our sweet Hailey.
This is a start.
We love & miss you. Every single minute of every single day.
Fly high, our Haileyfly.
