with crazy laughter. We had a picnic with your cake and then did a water slide on the swing set. I hope God let you hear them sing happy birthday to you… and maybe even see them splash down that slide and glide through the muddy puddle at the bottom! It reminded me of when the hurricane came through and you and Daddy played for hours in the water pooled across the street. My girls all love the mud!
Then we cleaned up and went out to eat some good french fries because they were your favorite. And I read to the girls about heaven and eternal life. I remembered one day when we were swinging in the yard, and you started talking about Jesus coming in the clouds. Then you asked me about heaven. I sang a song to you that I had learned when I was little about how heaven is a wonderful place (anybody remember Salty the Singing Songbook??). Now our conversations about heaven seem so ironic. I was trying to teach you. Oh, what wonderful things you could teach me now!
