What a busy, fantastic, amazing, bittersweet weekend filled with many milestones.
Our Braveheart's 17th birthday was amazing. I spent all day making his favorite cakes..that would be strawberry butter cream cake and rhubarb cake. (fresh cut from the garden and fresh ground berries)
That same evening we held an event to celebrate our boy's birthday at a Trivia Night for his fellow Boy Scouter who is raising money for his Eagle Scout project. We held it at our church and we had a great turn out!
This project will be dedicated to Braveheart as a memorial!! This project just oozes our boy. It will be a bird observation deck. Many of you know how much he loved birds and bird watching. How can I express the blessing it is to our family to have so many people show up to support this project and remember our boy's special day and then to know he will have a special memorial in our city?
Next, it was Mother's Day. I was loved on by my kiddos left here on earth, but oh do we miss our dear one. We fancied up his grave site for Spring, personalizing it just for him. That is pleasing to the soul.
It is bittersweet........
Just a taste of the beautiful blooms popping up around me, reminding me of my precious one until I see him again in Heaven.
