What would it be like to have you here with us? To hear your laughing voice as you egg Will and Elise on in their races. To see your wavy brown hair dance in the wind. To hear you read to Seth and do a puzzle with Will. To see you snuggle up with Elise as she shared her favorite story with you. To feel you close as you kissed my cheek. To hear you hurry to greet your Daddy as he walked in the door.
I can only imagine what it would be like to add you to our crazy life. What your place would be. What you would look like, what you would say. I don’t think about it often, and when I do, it hurts. Because the reality is that you never even got to see a Spring.
Although, how can I compare Spring on earth with the perfect season of heaven. I know, that no matter what you missed here on earth, you have more than I can ever imagine in heaven. I know that no matter how many days we live without you here, there will be more than I can number with you later.
I love you Emma.

The girls speak of Emma often when we drive by the graveyard. Thinking of you today.
Love you Miriam. She is still very loved and missed.
