I've been staying busy cleaning up the yard and walking. Ended up going to the IL's cemetary this weekend and digging all the area around it up so make it easier to plant again in the Spring. Finished raking the leaves at my MIL's and sweeping out her barn and garage. Very excited to put my new cardio dvd in that I got in the mail this weekend... my doctor still hasn't released me to exercise but this is driving me crazy!!!
On a side note, a friend of mine lost her brother this weekend, which put things in perspective for me once again. I'm happy, healthy (except for that whole chest pain/bp thing) and so blessed to have friends and family in my life. It's never easy to lose a loved one, but this time of year it's increasingly difficult with the holidays.
Tomorrow the wreaths I've ordered will be here and that means a trip out to the cemetary with my MIL. I imagine going to Gavin's grave will be difficult because he's been gone just over a month. It was impossible to imagine the impact that a child can have in your life when he was only with us 6 days. I'm unsure if it would be easier to have the whole family there to put his grave blanket on, or not... I guess I'll wait for the day to arrive and see what I think then.
I hope everyone has a holiday full of friends and family... and that they find all the things in their lives to be thankful for.
