Genesis and March 16

I have a friend I met online whose daughter, Genesis, was also stillborn. Her birthday is actually on March 16th as well! This year, she would be turning 9. I hold a special spot in my heart for Genesis and her mama, Tiffany. Just knowing that we share that sacred date is enough to make her my friend. :)

It is interesting reading what she writes because there are so many similarities between us... the same anticipation about our daughter's impending birthdays when the new year rolls around. The same tie we have to March 17th, St. Patrick's Day, and how we associate that date and all things green and clovers with our girls.

Anytime I see dragonflies, something that makes Tiffany think of Genesis, it also makes me think of her. It's amazing how we carry the babies of our friends with us always too. We both also like to snap photos of the things that are "winks from Heaven," as I call them. For instance, I saw this truck the other day, which made me think of Lily and Genesis, so I took a photo and sent it to Tiffany as well.

Each year on March 16th, I like to see how Tiffany honors Genesis. We both have traditions. It is sweet thinking of them throughout that day, knowing that Tiffany is probably feeling many of the things I am at the same time I am.
