A Letter to my Daughter in Heaven

Updated: Sep 7, 2020

Dear Katie,

Losing you was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to deal with. It broke me into a million pieces, but I knew you didn’t want me to stay in that dark and painful place. I decided that I wanted to live like you did. I want to live with passion and purpose and be the kind-hearted person that you were. You are my guide and my teacher and you have made me a better person. While not a day that goes by without some pain and sadness, you have have taught me more than I ever thought possible.

Because of you, I learned that becoming a mom is the greatest privilege of all.

Because of you, I learned that life is gift, no matter how hard it is and that I can choose to treat it as such or throw it away.

Because of you, I learned that love is a precious gift. I now try to love everyone and everything, just like you did.
