It has broke my heart all over again. I think I am at the stage where I am okay and the smallest something which makes me think of my little girl has me depressed.

I do not look forward to this Christmas and the others that follow. Because this was her favorite time of year.

How someone that small gave me joy for 7 years. And now, for the rest of my life there is no joy.
