On this day, 2001, Macayla Grace Smoak was born at Self Memorial in Greenwood, SC. She came out healthy in spite of a challenging delivery for Mom.
Macayla lived for nine years and died at 11:25 p.m. on this day in 2010. She celebrated 98% of her 9th birthday with us and then stepped into Christ's presence to celebrate so much more! The picture here is of her last birthday cake, provided by sweet friends at a difficult time. It is hard to believe it was three years ago. It seems like a lifetime and a blink of the eye at the same time.
We miss her. This was a tougher day than the last two birthdays. But we know she is whole. We know we will see her again. We grieve, but we grieve with hope.
