Celebrating Heavenly Birthday’s!

Twice a year the mood in our family changes. The kids know daddy’s heart is sad. We celebrate the kids Uncle Ralph- both his earthly birthday and his Heavenly birthday. None of the kids or I had the pleasure to know my husband’s brother because he died of cancer many years ago.  But the kids insist on having a birthday party for him. It’s simple but meaningful. We light yellow candles (his favorite color) in some Twinkies (his favorite snack cake) and sing happy birthday.

 

Loss is hard but we do what we can to remember and celebrate.

I’d love to hear what your family does to honor and remember loves ones.
