210. That is the number of days we got to look upon your beautiful face. We are so grateful for the 210 days you gave us. We know you fought so hard for all of them.
In 210 days we learned more about love, beauty, life, and family than in all of the days before combined. That is what you taught us, not the hospital lingo or the mechanical workings of the human heart but love, gratefulness, happiness and pure joy.
We always worry that people will remember you for your illness when it is your radiant joy that set you apart and made you so special.
How lucky we are to be the ones chosen for you and to call you ours. It is a weird journey through grief that you find yourself feeling so lucky and so broken at the same time.
Today you have been gone for 210 days.
Tomorrow you will have been gone longer than you were here. But no matter of time could ever diminish your light.
Like today and everyday since you have been gone we will face each day with a grateful broken heart and look for the beauty and joy you showed us was there.
