Some of you may know the story about my DD.

She died aged 14, 5 years ago.

When she was dying I was sitting with her and she was reaching out and smiling.

I said to her 'what are you doing darling?'

She told me 'I am catching the butterflies mummy'

She left us soon after and ever since butterflies have been a huge part of my life. Billie was like a butterfly. Beautiful and fragile and she bought joy to anyone who knew her.

Its my birthday today it was also the Memory Day a the local children's hospice. We let off some ballons and I took a photo of Billie's.

Its on my profile. Look at the shape the clouds are making.

I didn't know the story about your DD.
How touching!
She was very beautiful. The photos you have shared on your profile are lovely.

The photo of the balloon is wonderful.
I hope you were able to enjoy your birthday today and to smile as you remembered the good times with Billie, rather than be too sad.

What a sad story. She looked beautiful sad

Happy Birthday doesn't really seem appropriate here but I'm glad you could spend the day at the hospice smile
