First, I want to ask that you pray for Courtney and Jason. They have lost another son, Wyatt, and no doubt this is very difficult for them. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers with all that they are facing.
The weekend started out on Friday being 14 months since Carleigh's birth. I actually didn't even realize it until later in the day. I'm doing really well. Many more good days than bad days. I still miss her so much. (Highlight of the day-I got my hair cut and was able to donate to Locks of Love. Yay!)
On Sunday, May 30th, our church had their memorial service and Carleigh was added to our church's memorial roll. We got a certificate with her name on it and was presented with a red rose. Everyone also brought in their own flowers from their gardens and elsewhere to create a memorial bouquet. We didn't bring a flower but my friend Lori was there and had brought a flower in and gave it to us to add to the bouquet. I appreciated that so much!! And I was a little teary during it all because I missed her so much.
Today we went out to the cemetery to place a wreath by Carleigh's grave for Memorial Day. The wreath that we placed was one that I have kept in our closet for over a year now. It was given to us for Carleigh's funeral and I kept it for this exact reason. We had to stop by the flower shop to pick up a holder for it since we didn't have one. Thankfully they were open that day! (I figured they would be though.)
So we went out to the cemetery and the weather was just beautiful out. It was warm and sunny (but unfortunately a little humid too!). Kyndra was pretty excited and starting running around right away collecting things like rocks and flowers. I put up the wreath while Anthony took some pictures. Then we just spent some time out there for a little bit. The horses were there like always and I got them in one of the pics. Kyndra picked some flowers for sissy and gave them to her and then we said goodbye. So here are lots of pics from our visit:
So, we had a pretty good weekend overall.
