Yesterday we celebrated Kobe's 8th birthday. We just did the usual....blew out candles on a cake and ENJOYED ;) I remember the first few years after his death that I felt like I had to do something big & special or else I would be a bad mother. Is it weird that I don't feel like that anymore. I mean....I know where he is and I know he is doing great things and he is certainly not worried about wether or not we have a big celebration for him. So am I a bad mother??
I just can't believe it's been 8 years. Kobe would be getting baptised this year...a milestone that I should be sad to miss right? But I have a silver lining. My son is already perfect. That gives me joy.
There were a few really difficult months that I wondered how I would ever move on...but I did. Does it mean I forgot? Certainly not. But it's not a tragedy anymore, his life was & is a miracle that I am really grateful for! How often do you get to see God perform such a huge miracle as Kobe was? We are so blessed!!
Happy Birthday Kobe!!!
