Today is my little sister Ashley's birthday, she would of been 26. She passed away when she was 20 months old, due to heart problems. I miss her every day, no matter how many years go by, I always wonder what she would look like, what she would be doing right now, and if she would be healthy. When I found out I was having a daughter 7 years ago, I decided I wanted to name her after my little sister. My daughter acts JUST like my sis!
I wish I could remember all of the time she was here, but now I have to look at pictures to get back those memories. And the one thing I wish over and over I could forget, I can't. Why can't I erase that bad day, and keep all the good days?
No matter how hard I try, I can't forget that. I'd trade it for just one memory of me and my sister together, but I guess life doesn't work that way.
I love you Ashley, I miss you more than words can say. I know you're looking down on us, probably giggling that my daughter has your stubborness, but she also has your beauty and spunk, so I'm so glad I named her after you! Happy Birthday Ashley!
