Sorry it has been a while. Mother’s day was difficult to get thru. I know there will be days like that. Unfortunately, it doesn’t make it any easier.
I made some calls last week. My mom wanted her ashes to be spread around some flowers. It turns out there are some legalities to that. I thought at one point of putting her ashes around my younger sister who died in childbirth. Unfortunately, that requires them opening up my sister’s grave to put the ashes there. I can not scatter them. It also costs over one grand. I know my mom would be furious at the thought of my sister’s resting place being disturbed.
There is a park here in town I used to love to walk at. Has beautiful landscaping and flowers. I called them and even though technically it’s not supposed to happen, they allow it as long as we aren’t disturbing other park attendees. Now I just need to coordinate with a few people who wanted to be there and watch the weather as best as I can.
I still needed something to feel close to my mom. So I found a necklace that I can put a few of her ashes in. Yes, I know I can go to the park but, it’s not the same as seeing her name on a stone. I went to this website and found the perfect one. Unless, I told someone, no one would guess what I would be wearing. I have collected angels in the past. An angel pendant is very fitting. After all, mom is and always was, an angel.
