Celebrating Julia

A former client passed away a little over three years ago. She was really special to me and her mom also had a special place in my heart. Her family throws her a birthday party every year in her memory and just to get everyone together to remember her. Julia truly was one of a kind and despite a pretty horrible 6 years of battling a mitochondrial disorder she was a positive child and rarely complained (about life at least, she complained a lot about my singing and choice of activities in therapy). Anyways this year I brought Callie and Diego to the party. Callie and I have talked about Julia a lot. She helped create the bags for the homeless when her mom was doing the giving back on the anniversary of her death. Callie says funny things like well we shouldn't bring her a present because she is in heaven and can't get it. Right Callie. Then we'll why do we have cake if Julia doesn't get to eat it? I tell her that Hulia gets her own cake in heaven and she just enjoys watching us all get together hVe fun and talk about Julie. We had lots of fun at her party Saturday and Callie had her first water balloon fight. She loves it, D was terrified because his shoes got wet. The kids played on the playground for hours and CLlie was so brave doing the bigger kid climbing tasks. Happy birthday Julia we love you and miss you!
