taking care

Gravestone : noun A stone placed over a grave as a marker; a tombstone.

Marker : something used as a mark or indication, as a bookmark or tombstone.


We ordered the grave marker for Rowan today. Pictures will be posted later, my friend Donna has agreed to take some for me. I don't know how long it will take to get here, but I'm anxious to have Rowan's place marked. The thought of that little body in that big cemetery with no marker brings tears to my eyes.

I thought that ordering the marker would bring some closure, or make me feel a little better. Turns out, I actually feel sad. It's like one more note of finality...

This place is really hard.

I love you so much. I think of you all and Rowan daily. Did you know that Rowan trees are mentioned in the Chronicles of Narnia? I thought of sweet little Rowan when Josh read that part to us the other night. It was just another sweet reminder of such a precious little one.

There is not a day that goes by that I don't have you and Rowan on my mind, or a day where I don't mention you guys. I love you Amanda.
