The day before my youngest birthday....how precious and exciting! It's also the day be for the anniversary of my dear friend Amos's passing.
My daughter Alice was born September 6th, 2012 and Amos died after a cruel battle with cancer on the very same day in 2013. So right now I don't know how to feel; overjoyed for my little trouble-making toddler's birthday celebration or somber & disheartened by losing a dear friend to soon.
I do believe everything happens for a reason, I'm just not sure what that reason is. I truly feel that it was no coincident that Amos died on Alice's birthday. There is a connection there that will forever be a mystery. It was only after he had passed that I also realized that both him and Alice have the exact same initials -
So for now, I'm just taking it one step at a time. Trying to stay positive and not dwell on the negative feelings associated with this time of year. I'm not sure what tomorrow will bring...but either way we will be celebrating the life of two very special AJW's.
