Forced to face reality

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

I won't start with the hardest part of my day but with the part that tells you I'm quilting the backing to the ice cream quilt finally. Hope tomorrow brings me more time to get the last 2 rows attached to it.

But I didn't get to work as much as I wanted to today. I did the normal stuff laundry, put the dishes away, take the garbage can to the street and play with Buck including a lot of reading outside in the nice weather.....but then one of my brother's sent me a photo from the cemetery my parents are buried in. I knew they installed the markers but hadn't been able to make myself go look at them. Hit me like a ton of bricks. Brings tears every time I think about it. Can't really believe how hard it hit me to see those. I was there when we all took them to the cemetery so I knew all about it. but something snapped today. It feels awful.

1. His comment was we finally know where they are buried. I paid for them and had them placed. They're graves are next to a tree with a bench we always knew where they were.
2. Opened a new book and can't seem to put it down.
3. Do like the feeling of a quilt coming together.

I have 3 little packages to ship tomorrow and might to go town. There is a new recipe I want to try. It calls for chicken breast, mushrooms and cream of chicken soup. But I have thighs so they will have to do. If I get up early enough I could take buck along in the car it is supposed to get warm in the afternoon again. Maybe I'll get my book read.

    DH and I were talking about something similar today. I think we always miss our parents, no matter how long they've been gone - it just hits us harder some times than others. I think it's healthy to sit down and have a good cry from time to time. While we have lots of good memories, we also MISS them.

    Seeing for the first time the markers at the cemetery can be difficult. I know when I went to the cemetery the following year ( back in Mn. ) tp see my mother's marker it hit me a bit. My dad's I had seen a couple of times before so that one was okay to see again. It just makes it all so official seeing the marker.

    You do such a nice job with your quilting. Use that to put some memories on of your parents. I understand the feeling of loss. Enjoy your day tomorrow.

    I hope that quilting helps you to relax and gives you some inner peace. I'm sorry for your loss and pray that you find comfort.
