A Birthday for a bright shining star

A little girl should today be celebrating her 1st Birthday.

Her Mummy and Daddy, brother and sister should be bubbling with excitement for the day ahead, the fun to be had, the memories to be made. 

She should be blowing that first candle out on her very first Birthday cake, and gleaming with pride.

But sadly she isn't here, instead her family are letting her sail off into the night...

To show some support to Jennie and her family on such a hard day some of us bloggers have written special posts for her. 

We used bubbles and stars for a little bit of messy/arty play.

We often make and create cards when it's someone's Birthday, even if it's a simple drawing, so this is for you Matilda (I'm sorry the photos haven't come out so well). 




Today is your Birthday 
So I just wanted to say
I hope you enjoy your special day

It's not how it should be
But still shine with glee
Up high above the sparkling sea

Shine brightly tonight
As today should have been a day of delight
Your Mummy and Daddy will miss you, most of all, tonight.

Thinking of you Jennie, wishing you all the love, strength and courage to get through today, and every other day xx

For those of you that don't know there is going to be an auction to raise money for The Lullaby Trust in Matilda's name and memory. More details to follow at Edspire and  Ghostwritermummy. The auction will be running from the 11th-20th May.

    1. I used water colour paper which may have helped a little, the one on purple sugar paper really didn't turn out very well at all . Thanks for doing the link for us all to join up x
