"If you came to me and said, 'There is someone in this world who wants you more than anything. He will do his best, he'll make some mistakes, and you'll only get him for a short time. But he will love you more than you can ever imagine,"
well, when that's true, I'd say so much is possible."
~ adapted from The Odd Life of Timothy Green
Great pictures and sooo coooool that you have a picture of his saying "I love you" What a treasure.
Happy Birthday Robb, partying up with the Big Man. Forever the man with the best salsa and guacamole recipes and the chap who forgot to take the paper off the cheese on the BBQ. Fondest memories of a great guy, love you all, from the Thorntons
I'm laughing so much, Jay - I forgot about the cheese-paper incident!
It's my dad's birthday, too. I didn't have him for very long.....I mourn what could have been. I think about him every day and tell him that I love him.
Tricia, I so loved the quote you used. May I borrow it for my own post when it's time to say 'Happy Birthday' to my husband, who also lives with Jesus? Different circumstances, yet much of what you write I enter into. Two years & 3months...still trying to get comfortable with the 'new normal'. Don't know what I would do without my Heavenly Father and the beautiful, tender writings of sweet 'sisters' like you! It's a gift to share, smile, laugh & cry together, all while trying to put one foot in front of the other. Praying our Lord & God will continue to give you exactly what you need for your everyday. HE is so very faithful, HE meets us around every dark & scary corner, and every morning HE is our HOPE! Praise God we are His daughters! Blessings to you, my new friend!
Donna, You are welcome to those words. And may you bravely be you as you step into this new normal. I'm sorry you have to do this, new friend.
Happy Birthday, Robb! Happy Memories, Tricia and Tucker and Tyler!
Beautiful pictures Tricia! I'm so glad the boys have them.
Happy Birthday Rob...what a short wonderful life you had, very much like my Dad who I still miss so much but carry his love and wisdom with me everyday. I guess I have to trust the Who and not get stuck on the whys of this earthly life. Blessings and prayers for your family!
