I can't believe it's already been a year. It sure doesn't feel like it's been that long. I think about you often, about our last conversation together, and how soft your hands were while you held mine. We talked about your future, what the next chapter had in store, and I'm confident that you've been up to exactly what we chatted about - making up for lost time with Timmy and Great-Grandpa and Grandma, and getting the work done that you knew would be waiting for you on the other side.
I hear you've got a baby just for me waiting with you! It brings so much comfort to me knowing that he or she is cuddled in your arms, getting spoiled with the love and joy that you spoiled me with! We are so excited for spring time to come to finally meet our little one.
I wish I could bring Ayla to visit you again, to hear you laugh at her silly personality, let you have a chance to soak up her sweet hugs, and see you and her play with the wood and felt dolls together. She's so so sweet, and such a smarty pants! I like to think that you keep an eye on her, and laugh just as much as we do at her goofiness.
There's so much I wish I could ask you... so much about what it's like where you're at, what you look like, how it felt to go from this life to another, how it all works. So many questions. I'll have to be patient I suppose, but if they ever open up family visiting hours in heaven, be sure to let us all know! I'm sure I'm not the only one that would jump on an opportunity to hug you again!
All my love,
