So, Jenn is also making the cake for Rachel's birthday and she asked me what I wanted it to say. I have spent days thinking and couldn't come up with anything.... it should be an easy answer on my daughter's 1st birthday, but it's not. I had an idea this morning that maybe I should just write a verse on it since none of the normal stuff seemed to really "go". I thought since flowers have always been Rachel's thing and Jenn's putting some on the cake, I should put a verse about flowers. I googled and came up with Psalm 103
Oh that's a good one, I thought... and then I continued on....
so this is why it's important to not take bible verses out of context... but all I can say is that when I read the 2nd half, I cried. Remembers her no more.... ? I hate that the day will one day come when I'm the only one who still remembers. I hate that it has happened to some extent already. I hate that the last year has gone by so fast when every single minute of it has been slow and painful. I hate that I can't just write Happy Birthday and have it make sense.
I've decided I'll probably write "Always in Our Hearts"
And even that sucks.
