Olivia, my beautiful daughter, I can’t believe it’s been 13 years since we last celebrated Christmas Day. Your gift to me was so precious and I will always cherish it. Every time I look at the collage of pictures you put together for me, my Heart feels sad. I don’t know how I have survived all of these years without hearing your voice, without hugging you, without you being here. Olivia, I do my best every day to put a smile on my face . I do my best to want to go places and do things the way we did before you became an Angel in Heaven. It’s not easy.

I’ve had dreams about you which are so real. In the dreams, we see each other and start running towards each other and hug. I always tell you I don’t want you to leave but I know you will. When I wake up, I often cry because it was a dream and you aren’t here with me. I know one day we will be together forever in Heaven. On that day, we will hold each other tight and never let go.

Until then, my sweet girl, I send you all my love, hugs and kisses. Olivia, my precious daughter, I love and miss you with all of my Heart and Soul, mom.
