When I woke up on Sunday morning I actually felt okay. The day turned out to be a lot easier than I imagined it was going to be. We had a very busy day with things on after church, so we headed straight to the cemetery after church to have a little picnic at Aaron's grave. Jalen put down the blanket right next to Aaron's grave, but I decided to move it right on top of his grave. Some people do all they can to avoid stepping on top of graves, but I actually like plonking myself right on top of Aaron and Noah's graves at times.
We took a photo with the timer on my phone and had a few laughs about the phone tipping over a few times, before we got a decent shot.
When we got home from church there was a lovely surprise at my front door - some flowers and a beautiful card that said some lovely things. I have no idea who it was from, but to whoever it was - thank you!
During the week Kobe was upset that he hadn't had time to make me a card for 'Valentine's Day'. I asked him what he meant and he said 'you know! When you and Dad got married!'. I laughed and told him that it was called our anniversary. He then got busy and made me a cute card, complete with two daiseys glued to the front.
Inside it said 'To Mum. We love you. From Jalen, Harri, Kobe, Milly, Nanna and Pa'. It made me laugh. He has been asking me all week if I love it. I told him that I did and that I'm sure that Dad would've loved it too. My anniversary would've been so much happier if Aaron was here, but I'm grateful that the day wasn't as hard as I thought it would be.
