it was 4 years later.
4 years since that 4th of July afternoon when little Emily came into this world.
And pictures that I have never shared here before bring comfort and a smile.
And I read through the three other birthday posts I have written…
realizing every step of this journey has been different. Every day is different.
I miss her.
My innocence is lost.
But, time marches on.
Four years away.
Four years closer…
