Memories Monday, February 24, 2020

It’s been awhile, but we’ve moved from Florida to Colorado. We came out for Christmas to celebrate with family, and things fell in place for us to continue our life journey here.

While we were out for the holidays, we were able to make a trip over to Utah where, for the first time, I was actually able to see James’ headstone. Hubby carefully cleared off the snow and I took this.

I was a bit surprised at how emotional this was. Another reminder that one never gets over having to bury a child.

But he was a good boy, and I’m grateful I was able to see the man he became.

Thursday would have been his 46th birthday. So, Happy Birthday, my son! There are no words for how much I love and miss you! But I know it’s not forever. So this is just until we meet again.

  1. I’ve been thinking about you, Betty. Wow, you moved clear across the country! But is there a Trader Joes in CO?! 😀 I’m glad you got to see your son’s headstone. I cannot imagine the emotion you must have felt. Stay warm in CO. Here in the Panhandle, we are looking at low temps in the 30’s later this week. People in CO laugh at that, I am sure. So good to see you back.

  2. “They say” that giving birth is the most painful thing a woman has to do, but I would like to differ. Burying a child has to be harder.

      1. Yes. I do have 3 step-sons, and they include me in the family, but I didn’t even know them til they were in their 30’s. I halfway raised the youngest, but he’s never really considered me his mom. But that’s ok. I’ve learned to accept it.
