Happy Birthday in Heaven 'D'

Today would have been my brother's birthday. I kept debating if I should do this post or not. I did not write a post for my sister Faith's birthday on the 8th, and neither did I do a post for my sister Charity's birthday on the 16th so why should I do a post for my brother's birthday? Even though it is great to remember my brother, wouldn't it be even greater to remember a person and honor and celebrate them while they are still here? My thoughts are rambled but I am really struggling with how much life seems to focus on a person when they are no longer here instead of really showing them that extreme love and devotion while they are still here to appreciate and receive it.

I miss my brother more then words can express, and even though I loved and appreciated him while he was here on earth, I wish that today I could, even just one more time, show and tell him how much I love him in person instead of having to honor the life that he lived.


  1. What a beautiful tribute to your brother! I'm sure it means a lot to all those lucky enough to have known him. He seems like he really touched a lot of lives. The world lost a great guy.

  2. How beautiful!!! I understand exactly what you are saying though. You don't know what is really important until it is gone. Thinking of you!!!!

  3. Ahhh, thinking of you, Joy. What a beautiful sister your brother has! Your tribute speaks miles. Thanks for sharing.....and thinking of you.
