Memorial Day Weekend 5-24-12
The day started off with my head still hurting but not as bad. I went to breakfast with my friend. The sweet little waitress had such a wonderful personality. I had ordered hot chocolate. When I said I didn’t want any whip cream on it she gave me the sad face. She said, “No Happy.” I had to add a little “happy” to my hot chocolate. So she did. All of this would have been something Kathryn would have said. Calling the whip cream “Happy” would be something she would have said. I was really taken by this.
I got home and started trans planting plants. Before I went out side I sat and cried. I thought about my little sweet pea. I sure do miss her. I wonder how we will all remember her years down the road. Will she still be so clear in our hearts and minds. I hope so.
I was asked by my friend to speak at the Tacoma Relay Luminary Ceremony. I also received a call from Becky and she asked me to also speak at the Fife-Milton-Edgewood Relay Luminary Ceremony. Of course I said yes. I hope I can pull it all together a really deliver.
I started feeling better and my headache was now gone so I got to work on transplanting those plants. I also got one of my garden boxes in the ground and filled with dirt. I’m excited to get them all in and all of my little plants in the ground. I hope to impress Richard and our friend Dash.
I had also mentioned about my cousin’s husband passing away the other yesterday. Kathryn was the flower girl in their wedding when she was about 4. A friend emailed me and said she was sure that Kathryn greeted him with open arms. You know, that would be her way. She would have her big beautiful smile on and arms open to give him a big hug. The page is caringbridge not cainbridge I don’t know why I keep trying to call it something that it is not.
I will be without internet for a couple of days. So I will not post probably until Monday.
I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Remember it is to remember those we have lost. We usually go visit the family graves at Mountain View Cemetery. We will probably do this on Monday. Both Scott and I have grandparents there. They took care of Kathryn and did a beautiful job.
