9 Months

This past Friday was Johanna's 9 month BDay.  I'm amazed at how long that seems and how short it really it.  I don't really have any words of wisdom except to say that I miss her.  And to be completely honest, I wish she were still here with us.  I understand all of the spiritual and eternal things associated with Johanna, but I'm still her Mom.  And I'm still jealous and selfish over her.  With all of that aside, I know how fortunate we are to have been able to spend around an hour with her.

And bonus points for the hubs.  When I came home from the gym on Friday, he had a dozen pink and white roses waiting for me.  He's a keeper.

I must admit I still ask why, but as Alan and I were talking the other day it is not for me to know why. Only God knows why and that has to be enough. But once a "Tram" always a "Tram".

Its easy for me to remember her birthday. Luke was born into heaven the night before Johanna was born. I hope their friends in heaven. Happy birthday Johanna!
