A Birthday in Heaven
A Birthday in Heaven
My dad's birthday is in the beginning of March. Sadly, I won't get to hug him and wish him a great birthday. There will be no silly birthday hats for him to wear. No candles to blow out. My dad, the greatest dad who ever lived, is celebrating his birthday in Heaven.
I absolutely adore this man. I miss him every single day. I think about him several times throughout the day even though it has been many years since he went on to Heaven. He was wonderful and I was very blessed as a child. I had the dad everyone dreams about.
I hope they have the best birthday celebrations in Heaven. I am sure they do. After all, who deserves a better birthday than our favorite angels? And where better to have the most wonderful birthday ever than in Heaven?
For those of you missing someone on their birthday, I understand. I may not have walked in your shoes, but I understand the hurt. Just remember, you are doing the most wonderful thing you can do by remembering!
Anyone who knows me knows that my dad's death had a huge impact on my life. I miss him so completely. I cherish the memories he left with me. In his eyes I was the most beautiful, smart and wonderful girl to walk the earth. That is how he made me feel.
I am so happy my daughters can say that they had the best grandpa ever. In fact, when he passed away, he had a "to-do list" that had one item on it: "take the grrrrrs fishing". He called my daughters the grrrs. :) Sadly, he never took them fishing. But he did spoil them rotten and they knew that he loved them.
From Here to Heaven Greeting Cards
From Here to Heaven Greeting Cards is a labor of love.
In the past, I went to the store to find a card to leave at my fathers grave. I would have to read through the many cards for people that are living and find something that would work. I always wished that there were cards for those who have gone on to Heaven. After all, we still love them. They are still a part of our life.
Finally, I decided that I should make a card line for those of us who love and miss someone who has passed away. That is most of us, right? I planned this for the last few years. I found one artist...then another. I now have the perfect artist who is busy creating beautiful designs for my cards. I hope you like them.
Birthday Memorial Candles
What a great tradition to start now! Burn memorial candles on the one you love's birthday. A great way to think about that special person and show love even though they are not here physically.
Have a special place in the home with pictures and momentos? This would fit right in.
This is both cute and beautiful. I love it!
