Today has been a tough day. This morning my Dad and I went down to the cemetery to put flowers and a birthday balloon on Mom's grave. Dad picked out beautiful yellow roses and I picked out a froggy balloon (Mom would have loved both). How do you comfort your parent when you yourself needs comfort? It absolutely breaks my heart to see my Dad so broken hearted. As I have said before, he and my Mom were soul mates. When they married, they truly became one.
After spending some time at the cemetery, Dad and I parted ways. He went to his house and worked on his bathroom putting up beadboard and baseboards. I went home, made us lunch and then baked cupcakes. He came and ate then went back to work.
This evening Dad, RAW, LEH, Mr. Giggles, G-mom P and I went to dinner to celebrate Mom's birthday. We went to Outback and had a great meal and then celebrated with cupcakes (we even shared one with our waiter).
Tomorrow I will try to remember to take my camera with me to the cemetery and take pics of the beautiful yellow roses, the happy birthday balloon and the pink roses my G-mom took out there. (I also took a beautiful red rose and put it on our baby's grave. Someone had taken a little chick figurine and put it on his tombstone)
