Saturday was 3 months since holding Sophia & Ellie in our arms. To honor the day we first went to the cemetery for a visit. We left some very beautiful flowers at their grave and said a few words to our precious little ones. Two doors down, another child had been buried, it breaks my heart to see freshly dug ground out there because I know other parents are feeling our pain.
Later in the day, we planted some very special seeds to grow our own flowers just for the girls. I bought these seeds from Anna at http://www.greetingsthatgrow.etsy.com/. Anna makes plantable tags with wildflower seed paper. I purchased angel shaped tags, tied two together with pink ribbon and a note that said, "Plant these angels and when they bloom, remember our angels Sophia and Ellie." I sent these out with my thank you cards to the people who have done so much for us these past 3 months. I mailed them on Friday, hoping they would be delivered on Saturday, their angelversary. I searched for quite some time for some type of seed packet to mail with my cards in memory of my daughters, but had a hard time finding anything. I stumbled across Anna's shop and knew this was it!
The rest of the day was busy with our niece's birthday party and a few other things, so it was a good day. Sad, but busy and good.
Last night when I got home from having some wine with the girls (you gotta have a little fun once in a while right???), I checked my e-mail. I received a very special something from Sarah. She has a new blog dedicated to her flowers, click on her button, Say It With Flowers, on the left if you have not visited it yet. Thank you Sarah for brightening my day. I LOVE it!!!
Rachel makes them. I did not know this when I purchased mine, so mine did not come from her, but just to pass the word along...she does.
