my world as I knew it shattered.
my heart broke.
but little by little God restored it all.
I learned to live a new life.
A stronger life.
I let Him heal my broken heart.
He made it bigger.
He used my pain.
He used my story.
To encourage and comfort others.
Redeemed the suffering.
Made me into a better mother.
A better wife.
A better friend.
He taught me about heaven.
I am immensely thankful for Joy's life.
My own life would not be the same without her.
Happy birthday to my beautiful Joy Emma.
I miss you every day.
I miss you in every way.
I can't wait until I can hold you again.
