Today is Chelsea's angel day, at least that is what we like to call it. Oh how we miss this girl of ours! How we wish we could here her voice, laugh with her, watch her dance, help her with homework and continue to watch her grow, but for now, we are temporarily separated.
So we do our best to press on and continue with faith, knowing she must be happy, working hard, having an amazing perspective on things and praying on our behalf as well. I have thought what would she tell us is of most importance if she could come back for just 5 minutes? I think we know..... we all know what is most important. Be your best, be kind, stand as a witness, be like the Savior!
Although that is not always easy, we must try!
People ask me if I feel her, or dream about her. I don't dream about her at night, but she is never far from my thoughts throughout the whole day! And I can really feel her with me when I go to the Temple. Special things have happened to me when I am there, and so selfishly, I go a lot to be with her.
Last year on this day, I went through the Temple for her. What an amazing experience that was. The kids did baptisms, and friends and family joined us on that special day. Tonight, Rich and I will go and embrace the sacredness of Eternal Families. What an incredible gift, and one that we will work to obtain.. for Chelsea, our Light on a Hill, is waiting for us.
A dear friend from the ward took these pictures for us at the funeral. I want to share a few of my favorites.
They say a picture says a thousand words. So true!Till we meet again Chelsea, our hearts and minds are with you. We love you forever and always.
