This has been a good day. I got to spend most of it with my daughter. The only sad spot was picking up my husband’s ashes. Doing it with my daughter made it meaningful. We will be able to do a memorial service in the fall at the church my husband built. He loved it so. We want people to be able to come and I want a military presence since that was such a part of his life.

We spent lots of time in a garden nursery center that was amazing. Just being outside with lot of plants and flowers brightens the soul.

I was a able to get a few plants to put outside and two indoor ones to make my apartment home. I love plants. However, I can’t say I miss the huge yard we moved from. It was truly overwhelming. I never could reach done….not even for a day. It was just constant. Probably one of the few things I don’t miss after moving.

All in all a comforting sort of day.

  1. oh my gosh..i had to go back and find out what happened when i read “husbands ashes”…holy wow…i am so so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine the blow that must have been amidst all the other crisis going on..i am glad you were able to have a good day…my heart and hugs go out to you…!!!


  2. That must have been difficult. I was with my mom when we picked out daddy’s headstone. How wonderful to have the service at a church he built; such a great legacy. There is something healing about tending to plants. Now that the weather is turning, I am getting outside whenever I can. It is so much easier without having to put layers and layers on. I have about a quarter acre and can get overwhelmed at times. I remember your property and it was gorgeous, but yes, it would be a full-time job for anyone. Happy to know you felt comfort today. Much love.
