We had a relaxing weekend. We went to a nursery on Saturday trying to find a tree to plant for Harper. I think we have decided on a southern magnolia, she will grow tall and strong and give us beautiful flowers in early summer. We like the summer flowering since Harper was born in the summer. Magnolias are resistant to drought and disease and would do well in our climate. We are planning on extending a part of our fence and gating off our memorial garden to keep it safe from the wild and crazy Zeus & Luna.
We will do a little more homework to find out when the best time to plant is and get started on our little project soon. I can't wait!
I just finished reading I Will Carry You: The Sacred Dance of Grief and Joy by Angie Smith. It is an absolutely wonderful book, I cried through most of it. The lovely Rebecca sent it to me and I am so grateful. I have found so much comfort and strength in this book and I know that I will read it again. Below is the video and song, I Will Carry You (Audrey's song) by Selah. Have your kleenex handy. This is an amazingly strong and inspirational family.
