The Last Thing


So my dad called the other day and told me that when he went to visit my mom's grave, he discovered that Owen's stone was there. So on Saturday, we went to the the cemetery. I like how permanent it is. I need for something about Owen, other than his loss, to be permanent. Standing there, I realized it is probably the last thing we will ever buy for our son. There are so many other things I wanted to give him. Owen, I had so many plans for you, for us.

i hate that.
i hate thinking (about everything i have for her) that THAT'S ALL THERE IS.

we've decided to get memorial tattoos for paige. i love that it will always be with me, that it will be so big and visible that it will force people to notice (and sometimes sneer, but that will give me some sick satisfaction..."YES, I AM DIFFERENT, MY BABY IS DEAD"). i love seeing her name on husband's arm everyday.

and i will hate it, because that's all there is.

I had the same feelings when seeing my son's headstone for the first time. This was our last 'thing' to do for him. Thinking of you...
