Today marks the 32nd birthday of my oldest daughter Shana. Most of you know we lost her in 2006. The past three years have been a rough road, but I think I may have finally turned a corner. While feeling a little melancholy this morning, I'm not sad and depressed like I've been in the past. I miss Shana so much sometimes I can hardly breathe. But today I'm going to be happy. Happy that she was with us as long as she was. Grateful for the time we had together. Grateful for the sweet spirit she brought to our family. Appreciation for the daughter, sister, aunt, and friend she was. Thankful for the love and fierce loyalty she gave to those closest to her.
In tribute to Shana, I want to share a few songs she loved or that meant something to the two of us. Hope you enjoy.
