I took Rafe to preschool this morning. He had not been to school since last Monday. He did not want to go as usual (of course, he loves it once he gets there), but I convinced him by letting him take a rose to his little girlfriend. We have so many bouquets of flowers from Sydney's funeral. Rafe loves to pick at the flowers and give them to me. I suggested he give one to Shelby, his girlfriend. When we got to school we found out it was her birthday today. His teacher said she wished she videoed him giving her the rose. It was just precious.
While Rafe was at school, I decided to go buy him his Valentine's Day gifts. While I was shopping for cards, I saw a card for a baby girl's first Valentine's day. I could not help myself, I had to buy it. Some might say that was a silly thing to do, but I want her to have a card and gift just like Rafe. I started thinking about what I could get her. I thought of stuffed animals, but I knew they would not last long at her grave. I decided to buy a little angel for her. It is entitled "Daughter's Angel". The tag says "A daughter fills our hearts with joy, and spreads love everywhere." I thought that was so appropriate for Sydney Grace. She spread so much love to everyone that knew of her. As someone told me while shopping, "She was our little girl." This lady had never met Sydney Grace, but that is how she felt about her. That is how everyone felt about her.
