Vacation…without you

Hey Mom…

We had the vacation of a lifetime over spring break!  It is something I never would have done with you alive.  I know that your perspective on things from heaven is different than you had while you were here.

I took the boys to California for a week.  We stayed with my Dad and Edna.  This is the part you would not have been comfortable with…so I didn’t do it until now.  My choice – you never said I could not or should not take the boys and stay with my Dad and Edna.  I knew it would make you unhappy and I didn’t want to do that.  So I waited…

This was the right time to go.  The boys were the perfect age to fly with me (as the only adult…I was ready too!), and the boys were the perfect age for Universal and Disney, and SeaWorld in San Diego.

I know you watched us and you were proud of the way the boys behaved.  I know you enjoyed the fun we had – just as you always did when you were with us.  Alex reminded me often that you were with us on the rides and watching the shows!

I love you mom.  I miss you often and still want to call you most days.  But we are okay most days Mom!

I am a mom of 3 -- two boys on earth and one boy in heaven. My mom is/was my best friend and since her death I've not been able to grieve as I know I should. I miss her.....I'm going to try to work through my pain here. Care to join me on my journey?
