Paige's 3rd Birthday

My angel turns 3 today.  Instead of my arms she spends this day in the arms of Jesus.  A hard one to swallow but I know she is wonderful hands.  You would think this day would get easier each year, but it only gets harder.  As we experience life with Landon and Mya we start to realize how much we missed out on with Paige.  It never seems fair and I still don't want to accept it, but it's life and I think I'm going to have to.  We talk about our sweet girl with her siblings every day.  Landon prays to his big sister every night and asks Jesus to give her a kiss.  It's the sweetest thing.  Myas face lights up when we say Paige's name as if she understands.  Our children know their big sister I am sure of that.  Today we spent time as a family.  We visited Paige's gravesite, we had a balloon release, we sang Happy Birthday a trillion times, we had yummy pizza for dinner and ended the night with an ice cream celebration.  I bet Paige's ice cream sundae in heaven was delicious!  I cherish the time we spend as a family especially honoring our oldest child.

Paige Jordan,

We love you sweet girl!  We know you watch over us every single day and protect your younger brother and sister.  You continue to impact our lives in so many ways and we live to make you proud.  We hope your birthday in heaven is magical and you celebrate with a big chocolate cake and ice cream.  We love you baby!  Happy 3rd birthday!!!

Love,
Mommy and Daddy
