36 days long, 36 days gone

Hailey beat the odds when she lived for 36 days. Statistically speaking, she wasn’t supposed to make it full term, she wasn’t supposed to survive birth, and she wasn’t supposed to live for more than 5-15 days. But she lived for a miraculous 36 days. January 6, 2010 marked her 36 day of life, her last day of life, because Jesus called her home.

Today marks 36 days without Hailey. She has been in Heaven for 36 days.

Here for 36 days, gone for 36 days…I’m not sure what to make of it.

Tomorrow I will have spent more days without her than days spent with her. From the beginning, I have always dreaded tomorrow… but I will not go there today. After all, do not worry about tomorrow because today has enough troubles of its own right?

36 days long, now 36 days gone. Time is flying by. It literally feels like her life and her death each happened in the blink of an eye…

So today, I will just try to keep my heart and mind focused on her miraculous life.
