Yesterday I was in town picking up a couple of things for the house, when I saw this sweet little Dragonfly on a hook. I immediately thought of Jake and thought this would be sweet hanging on the fence in front of his tiny little grave. So, I bought it. :o)
Today I drove out to the cemetery to take it to him. Everyone else was busy doing their own thing, so I went by myself. Normally, when I go the cemetery I'm sad and cry a lot. Today I felt a great peace, just driving out there... I had my radio on my favorite christian station and as I got close and was pulling in the song "Praise you In this Storm" by Casting Crowns was on. I turned up and just sang.
I got out and walked to my son's grave and put his little dragonfly on the fence, and moved it a couple of times until I found the spot where I liked it the most. I put it down low, close to him. :o)
Beside the church and cemetery there is a pretty big field... as it's way out in the country. It is so pretty and peaceful. I picked Jake a whole handful of flowers. There were Bluebonnets, Indian paintbrushes and also some pretty yellow,pink, white and purple wildflowers. They were beautiful.
This is what my handful of flowers looked like before I took it to his little grave.
This picture is of the pretty flowers upon my babies grave. <3
