Sacrifice

On October 6, 1986 I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.
The moment she was born, she became a baby sister. So small and new.
Her big sister was so excited!

 
 
 
And she was gorgeous. The minute I looked at her I fell head over heals in love. She was an easy baby, sleeping through the night even in the hospital!
 
She was such a sweet spirited little girl. Always thinking of others, wanting to please whoever she was with. She was kind hearted and gentle.
 
We nicknamed her Sweety Bear.
 
 

 
 
And with that kindhearted spirit, she sacrificed herself for her big sister.
 
Sharaya was the one who shared her birthday parties with Beth.
She was the one who stood next to Beth for choir concerts.
She was the one Beth went to for help.
She was the one they called out of class when Beth struggled at school.
 
She sacrificed more times than I ever knew about while she was growing up.

 
 
Sharaya, the Lord put you in our family specifically to teach us how to love, how to serve and how to give. You have been God's heart in our family.
 
 
I love you!
Happy Birthday!!
