Happy birthday! Today will be a day we’ll always celebrate, with your spirit and in your honour.
Your birthday present this year would have been an easy one! I always try to seek the positives, like you did, but the one thing I wish for more than anything is that you could have met Elsie.
Imagining you with her is what I do instead. It makes me happy knowing how much you would have loved and adored her.
She is growing up fast – I know you’d be proud of her – she’s such a happy little baby. She looks at photos of you curiously, she’s a smart cookie. Obviously.
Love you Mum, always
