The movie Tangled is without a doubt my favorite movie of all time. It has such a huge significance to me and correlates to my life in so many ways. My favorite part is when you see her parents, the King and Queen, on her 18th birthday - still crying, still missing their baby girl that was taken, sending off lanterns in her memory. I will be no different. No matter how many years pass, I could be 99 years old, and I will still miss my girls. Nothing will change that. I will still cry and hurt because I will still love them then.
Today is my daughter, Bree-Elle's 4th birthday. She's my baby and it's hard to believe that she wouldn't be a baby anymore. It feels like yesterday that she died in my arms cuddled in bed with us. How could she be 4 years old? How could I have missed out on so much?? I don't know how I will make it to her 18th birthday but if I do there is no doubt that I will cry that day too. And like the King and Queen, we will let off our own "lanterns" (balloons) in her memory today still remembering her. We even ordered her a Tangled birthday cake and decorations for her grave.
One of my best friends said to me last night that Rapunzel "screams Bree-Elle". She was everything purple and pink, sweet and spunky and a little goofy too. She was very different from her other sister that died, Chloee. Chloee was more what I would call a classic Princess - quiet, shy, regal, beautiful. I'm so thankful I got the chance to know them and love them - a lot of my friends had stillborns and they didn't get that chance. But the bad side of that is that the suffered very much in their short lives. They were so sick - thinking of it just physically hurts me and makes me so sick.
Today we will spend the day together as a family. I am donating blood and we might stop by the hospital to donate some things. We will spoil our living son and just take it easy on ourselves.
I spent this morning scrappin a page for my Lost Princess, my Bree-Elle, using my latest kit I've been working on. She was so sick in this photo, but I think it still shows how beautiful she was.
Well, my boy is up and singing, "Happy Bree-Elle Birthday". So I am off to enjoy my last living child.
