McKenzie's Lesson: Make the Most of Every Moment

By Jennifer Bailey 
Three years ago we were blessed with the best gift of all. We were given a beautiful little girl. She weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces and was 21 inches long. Feb. 25 is McKenzie’s 3rd birthday and even though she is not here to celebrate, we are still celebrating her life and the time we had with her.

We are so happy to have had 25 months with her. She smiled and was happy more than you could imagine and dealt with every medical issue like it didn’t even bother her, playing and smiling through them all.

She loved her birthday parties, which we held on the 25th of every month. She loved seeing the people come see her and especially the balloons! McKenzie loved balloons! She loved to play with them and hit them and listen to the sound they made.

As we celebrate her 3rd birthday we ask you all to take a moment and think of her. Think of something you remember about her -- her smile, her big eyes, anything, even if it is just knowing her through her pictures and following her story. Her story has touched so many lives and we ask you all today to remember her story.

Remember her fight and her lessons she taught all of us: Make the most out of every day you have, remember we are only guaranteed this moment. Nothing is for sure for the future, so make the most out of every moment you do have.
