Tonight Paige asked me if I will be with her in heaven! I took a deep breath, but before I could answer, Paige began to sing, Families Can Be Together Forever. "That's right Paige, we will be together forever." I told her that if I died first that I would be waiting for her in heaven. With hesitation, I then said that if she died before me, then again, before I could answer she said, "Then Papa would be with me." She seemed very content with that idea! She then asked if Papa has a workshop in heaven and if she would be able to work in it with him. I assured her that I believe he did have a workshop and is working very hard. That is by far one of the fondest memories my girls have of him. Working in his shop, sawing, sanding, and creating beautiful things, usually for Nana! She then asked if she could have a dog in heaven. My poor children! We got a puppy last spring and she turned out to be very, "special." Needless to say we didn't have her very long. Now they think they have to wait until they are in heaven to have one!! Oh my, we just might have to fix that before long. I told Paige that all the wonderful things that she wants she will have in heaven. She then skipped down the hall and with a twirl of her dress, shouted, "Heaven is going to be wonderful!!"
This is one of my favorite pictures EVER of my little Paige. She is 6 and growing more BEAUTIFUL, SWEET, FUNNY, LOVING, COMPASSIONATE every day. She brings so much joy into our lives. There is something very special about this little girl. It's like a breeze of heaven each time she comes through the front door. I'm truly honored to be her Mother!
Paige with her birthday balloon!
Grandpa and Grandma Wood surprised Paige and met us at Islands for her birthday dinner. She got a Roxy purse and was thrilled that the wallet she got for Christmas now had a home!!!
Paige loves when we dote on her. John and I wrote on this paper heart, and I used a cookie cutter to cut out her PB&J to put in her lunch! She was tickled. Happy Birthday Paige!!!
