Happy Birthday my percious Michelle. I can't believe another year has passed without you. Where has the time gone?

Anyone who knows me knows that I talk about my darling daughter all the time (if you don't talk about a person who has died then they never lived). She gave me so much and the person I am today is because of her.

Michelle was a strong person with her own mind, what she believed in was very important to her. It was very difficult to change her mind unless you had a very good argument.  Understanding why was very important to her especially when she was sick. I miss her challenging me.

The last 16 years have been hard for me but a lot has happened that has shown me what true happiness is. I believe for me that such sadness eventually produced an understanding of what it means to be happy.  As her final gift Michelle has given me this.

Michelle you are always in my heart and you are my angel. Love you sweet girl.
