Yesterday, my sweet momma came to spend some time with me so that I would not be alone all day on Mary Anna’s birthday. She came with 14 pinks balloons in hand, since our sweet girl’s birthday is on the 14th and some pretty petite pink roses. Her suggestion was to release the balloons in honor of MAC, so without any idea what to do to celebrate our girl, Dan and I took the puppies to the park at sunset and did just that.
It was a precious time. The sunset was perfectly tinted pink and a little cloudy at the same time. D prayed over baby W, the dogs ran around, we cried, we smiled, we told Mary Anna Happy Birthday and how much we loved her, and then we went home.
And some sweet sisters of mine not “real” sisters but they are my sisters if that makes sense, started a tradition with their babies too to celebrate little MAC. I got two texts unexpectedly yesterday saying that they sang Happy Birthday to Mary Anna. They did this on their own. Talk about precious.
