9 years


My HEAVEN

My HEAVEN on EARTH

After Presley was born we always said we would BLESS Presley the first Sunday in January.  Little did we know the first Sunday was January 4th.  January 4th marked 9 years since we sent our baby girl Taylor back to her Heavenly Father.  Every year we get one pink balloon for every year old she would have been and let the boys send them to HEAVEN.  Sunday was such a special day for us.  I feel so overwhelmed with all my Heavenly Father has given me and see his hand in everything that is mine.

Truly amazing! As I sat here and read your blog, tears came to my eyes. You are such a strong person and a great role model. All of your babies are beautiful and I am so happy for you. Lots of hugs and kisses.

Beautiful pictures, beautiful post, and gorgeous family. Each one of those four babies has truly blessed your life.

Brittni Jo! How do you manage to make me cry with so few words!?! Incredible. (And, you look fabulous. We both know what's really important in life...) But seriously, I love this post. I love you!! At first I thought you were going to do the 10 year anniversary post and then saw the pink balloon. I started tearing up then, all it took was the picture. I love that you blessed P on Taylor's birthday. There are no coincidences in life!

Brittni,

I have been thinking a lot about you guys since we left Sunday. We are so glad that we came. The blessing was beautiful and Adam's testimony was wonderful.

I wished we could have been part of the pink balloon tradition.

We didn't talk much about Taylor while we were there and I felt bad that Don and I didn't talk about it and let you know we were thinking about it.

We enjoyed our short visit. You are a good wife and Mother and we thank you for your support of Adam in all that he does.

Bart and I were talking the other day about how we are so blessed and that everything that we have experienced was for a purpose. Life is amazing. Brit - I am not such a great friend to keep in touch, but I think of you often.

I love you Brit and I'm so glad you had such a special day. Little Taylor was so happy to and I'm sure looking down on what an amazing family you have. Presley is beautiful and every time I see that head of hair, I'm so amazed. YOU look amazing yourself. I wouldn't expect anything less though, you always do.
Love you

Good grief, that is the sweetest tradition ever. I visited sweet baby Isaac the other day and I just know how very close their little spirits are to us. Goodness, you are all so good looking.

Heidi Louise said...

It was meant to be. Brit I can't get over how beautiful your family is... and seriously... Presley has more hair than I did at the age of 5! LOL

She's beautiful!

Brit,
Amazing photos. What a wonderful thing to do. I teared up when reading this post. I can't imagine. You have a beautiful family, and do not look like a person who just had a baby. I hope all is well. Lindsey Buhler (Little)
