Purple had never really been a color that I’d noticed or sought out. Then seven months ago, purple was suddenly everywhere. Recently, along with the increase of purple in my wardrobe, I bought a purple purse. It wasn’t that I purposely set out to buy a physical reminder of Maddie, yet everyday I pick up that purse and I remember her.
Today is Maddie’s second birthday. I’m going to wear a purple shirt, carry my purple purse, and keep Maddie, Heather, and Mike and their whole family on my mind and in my heart.
