Twenty Three.

Today would be Merin's 23rd birthday. 23. So young. I miss you. I wish we could go celebrate together. Instead, I will hold our little angel and remember how blessed we are at this time.


xo.
always, your big sister.

Days like this with measurable milestones must be difficult. I admire your candor. You miss Merin, but you are still living for Ysa. Lots of love.

I had in my calendar from when I visit taught Merin that it was birthday today and was thinking of you. I love that picture so much, so cute!!!!

She always loved you too and I am sure still does - even more. 23 years isn't nearly long enough but she was so fortunate to fit so much into those years and leave so many wonderful memories for us. I miss her too - so much. I'm so glad I still have you. Love you.

What a sweet way to remember Merin today! You brought tears to our eyes. Esther is due tomorrow and has been thinking about Merin a lot today. We have you in our prayers constantly. We gain faith from your example of courage and strength.

What a great picture! I too remember Merin so well at that age! I'm still in shock that she isn't here for her 23rd birthday. Too soon. But indeed grateful for the time spent with her. She was so sweet. Thanks for this post:)
