One year ago right now I gave Lily my last kiss goodbye. Papa had just got done sharing a bowl of Lucky Charms with Lily. She picked out all the marshmallows and would feed him the cereal. After they walked out the door with Lily screaming and crying, “I don’t want to go!!!” as she always did I went into the bathroom and was crying and screaming at God, “God, Why are you doing this? Why are you letting this baby go through this? PLEASE GOD GIVE ME A SIGN AS TO WHAT YOUR PLAN IS. Never knowing that 5 1/2 hours later I would have my sign. But everyone please know that we have never blamed God.
