Happy Birthday Kelsi!


Today is our little angel Kelsi's birthday, she would have been five years old. It is not a sad day, more a day of remembering, and a day of thankfullness. How gratefull I am for Temples, for eternal families, for the gospel, and the knowledge that we can be together forever! I cannot imagine how hard it is for people who do not have the gospel, who think that they have lost their loved ones forever. When we had Kelsi, a nurse there was so amazing!! She said some of the most kind and thoughtfull things to help us get through it. She said, "Just remember that all she needed was to come here and get her little body, and you two had the oppurtunity to give her that.... She was so righteous in Heaven that she didn't need to go through all of the trials here on earth." She also reminded us that we were so lucky to have the church, to also be sealed in the temple, and for the opportunity to know that we could be with her again in Heaven. Thank you, thank you to that nurse, who had the opportunity to help us remember our blessings at a time of trial, and for taking it. I cannot believe the love that we recieved at that time! We came home to a cleaned, and organized house. There were flowers all over every counter, and food stacked in the fridge. We got notes of love and support, and priesthood blessings. I cannot thank you all enough! I would also like to take this oppurtunity to thank my Heavenly Father for all of the blessing that we recieved then, and have recieved. I am so gratefull for all of the times he blesses me, when I feel unworthy of those blessings. I cannot thank him enough for letting me and my husband be raised in the gospel, with active families, for eternal marriage, for our beautiful family, and for our beautiful little Kelsi who will be waiting on the other side for us! I will try my hardest to keep myself worthy, so that we can all be together again, forever! Happy birthday Kelsi, we love you so much!! (My mom made the most georgeous flower arrangement ever for us, for her birthday!! Thank you mom, I love you! If you look close, you can see a little angel in it :) )

Kristi,
I love your post. It made me cry. I also have to admit that I did not even know, I am so sorry. You are so strong and you know exactly what the gospel offers us.
