Memorial Day Visit to Her Spot

I was able to tend to Lily Kat's special spot over Memorial Day weekend when I was in Virginia visiting. I took her a bouquet of pretty fresh flowers that I put together for summer. The grave will never diminish my love or desire to mother her.

This picture moves me and I feel it speaks so much. The shadow of her death will always dwell in the shadow of my life. But she only died because she first lived... and that is what's most important. Her stone is a symbol of death, but so much more a symbol of her existence and life. But I sure wish a 5-year-old girl's shadow was standing beside me, rather than a memorial stone that doesn't talk, move, or grow...

This is what Lily's spot looks like driving up.

I find peace at her spot. Wish I could go more often.

The color pink and baby's breath remind me of her.

I wanted the flag and flowers to match... they are both so bright for summer!

I had to get a picture of her stone with my tattoo for her. :) Two of the biggest things I've done as her mommy.
