The Cemetery

This is the 100 year old Concord Baptist Church that is beside the cemetery.
The peaceful cemetery....
This picture came out blurry, but it is Eli's grave. We added some fresh flowers today, a red bird that Aunt Crista got him, and some lovely wind chimes that Aunt Mandy got for him. It was nice and peaceful out there today but the mosquitoes were horrible. That seems strange for Texas in February.... We left some flowers and birds for Jason's parents, grandparents, and brother too. I hope to find some Easter daffodils in the stores soon so we can take those out there. They are my favorite flower; they are blooming down here a little early this year. Colby and Mandy have some beautiful ones around a tree at their house. I need to plant some here at my house so I can enjoy them when I go in and out of the house.
Things have been pretty rough for me and Jason over the past few days. We have both been really down and not wanting to be near many people. We may go see the counselor from Hospice soon to try and get some ideas on how to go on with our lives. We have an appointment with the genetic counselor on March 5th to find out more information about Eli's SMA. We also need to have the funeral home rework the headstone to make it more like what we now want. Once we get Eli's ordered and paid for, we plan on saving up to get his parents one too. It has been several years now and it makes me sad to see their bare graves.
To our friends and family....bear with us......we need a little time to ourselves right now. Don't be upset if we don't call or make plans to visit. We just need a little space some days. Other days are good, but please understand that the bad ones are bad enough that we need some time alone...

I am glad you are going to see a counselor, it is a huge change and no one can expect you to know what you should do next... Just keep taking it a day at a time...

What beautiful wind chimes. You and Jason are the only ones who truly understand what you are going through. Take comfort in each other and allow yourself as much alone time as you need. Your friends will understand. Love you guys and always thinking about you.
