Aven in Colorado ♥

Picture by Anne ♥

It makes my heart happy when people remember my Aven. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of her. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss her. My heart will always have a piece missing. Even though my life is completely full, she is still missing. I still miss her. ♥

March 18th

Dear Aven,

I can't help but think of what would have been had you lived. I will probably "would have" forever when it comes to my baby girl. I am blessed for all I have today but you are still going to always be missing. I miss you terribly and I love you.

I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)
I am never without it... E.E Cummings

Dear Aven,

Am missing you more than usual on this dreary Sunday. Maybe it is that March is here or that your due date looms as it will every year. A woman sent me a stuffed bear that weighs as much as you did, maybe it is that. Those 11 ounces sure feel heavier than I remember. It has been 499 days since I held you last...sigh. I miss you.

Love you,

I am so very special

I have been from the start.

Before they held me in their arms

My family held me in their hearts.


And like a single drop of rain

That on still waters fall,

My life and love will ripples make

And touch the lives of all.
