Tales from the (not my) Trenches: Hannah's Heaven Day

4 years ago, my friend's daughter died.  I don't exactly recall what blog rolled me on over to hers, but I recall there being a call for prayer.  I remember Rachael's post stating, "Oh God, it hurts." 

Today is Hannah's Heaven Day.  I leave you with a link to click over to read Rachael's post about Hannah and her thoughts. 

I never had the opportunity to know Hannah before her death.  Over the years, I've come to know Hannah as a little girl who loved to dance, loved all things sparkly, was smart as a whip, but could get herself into trouble, had a squeaky voice, was a funky monkey, loved snuggles and Bath and Body Works "fruit salads," as well as spending time with her family. 

Rachael and her family will be at the surface for me today.  I will search out my sparklies so that I may share them with her later.

Hannah sounds like the most darling little girl. I love the idea of celebrating her "heaven day." Blessings.

Thank you. She was pretty amazing.

I remember that someone rolled me over the Rach at this time 4 years ago too. My heart broke for her and for the little girl that I didn't know. I always think of Hannah this time of year and pray for her and her family.
