It was a year ago today we buried our precious daughter. She was born on a holiday (July 4th) and her daddy felt it was fitting to bury her on a holiday. I remember thinking I would forever think of this day as Emmy’s day.
I don’t know St. Valentine, but I do know Emily. She showed us what true love is all about. She brought us closer to understanding the love our Lord has for us. We now know a self-sacrificing love that transcends any card and candy holiday. And even though it hurt my mama heart to let my daughter’s tiny body be lowered into that grave, I know it was only her body. My Emily does not reside in the cold ground. She rests in the arms of Jesus.
We love you, Emily! Happy Emily Day!
