A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam.

For a brief moment it's glory and beauty belong to our world.

But then it flies on again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel so lucky just to have seen it.

Happy 41st Month Birthday Nalah!

Today marks 41 months since Nalah was born. During her life, we celebrated each month. Nalah grew bored of the parties, and began rolling her eyes when the balloons, hats, whistles came out. She never complained, however, about a good cake or cupcakes. We ordered a special cake every month from Fuss Cupcakes in Edmonton. Chocolate with strawberry buttercream frosting. This cake was made for Nalah as a gift by Fuss Cupcakes on her first Heavenly birthday, at 27 months. We received this cake 8 days after Nalah passed away. When I asked who created it, they said "we all did". They all knew of Nalah and her story, because not many kids in Edmonton were ordering cakes each and every month. I will always appreciate their kindness, and I will always treasure those birthday memories, even when Nalah thought we were being silly at the time. Today at 5:18 pm marks the time when Nalah was born. This time will always be sacred to me.
