It was a perfect way to kick off a Mother's Day weekend. (more on the shower later.)
Then we paid a wonderful visit to my mom, who has got to be the best grammy on the whole earth. Sorry all!
We also made the effort to go visit my mom's grave site. I have to admit that I've never been one for cemetery visitations. In fact, I've only ever been to my mom's grave site maybe a couple times in my lifetime. Everyone remembers their loved ones in a different way. I guess I just feel that I keep her in my heart. I know she's a part of my life and always has been. I consider her spirit to be alive and I'd rather celebrate her life by thinking about her always, rather than dwell on her place of rest. Our visit to the cemetery, was confirming evidence to me that the way I've remembered her and thought about her throughout my life has been so much more meaningful than a visit to her grave site. Her spirit is continually a part of my life and there's really nothing tangible, visual, or literal, needed to make me feel a connection to her. I believe we gave her a wonderful gift by doing something that would make her happy. We spent time with her mom.
On Sunday we visited Trav's mama.
And lastly, I spent my "first" Mother's Day loving on my baby E as much as humanly possible.
