"There are two things I learned from him that night. The perfection of a moment, and the fleeting nature of it. "
Went to the cemetary today - as I do so frequently. Last time I was out there was last Wednesday. When I got there I got a bit of a surprise though, his stone was placed!
In any case, its beautiful. I couldn't ask for a better stone. Its exactly how I expected it to be.
It was a bittersweet moment. I was excited that it was there, I've been waiting for it for so long. But at the same time, it was sad - it feels so final. It feels more final than laying him to rest did.
Derrick hasn't seen it yet, I'm taking him there tonight.
Overall, we're doing fairly well. We still have our moments though. I haven't finished his scrapbook yet, I'm still working on it little by little. Derrick has a hard time looking through what I have finished so far. He did look at it and noticed that Gabriel looks a lot like my grandpa's baby picture - which was a little weird for him apparently. We are still attending our support groups every 2 weeks. I don't know how long we'll attend that for, but we enjoy meeting other loss parents.
I'm so thankful for those who have found my via my blog. I enjoy talking to others who know exactly what I'm thinking and feeling.
