We made another visit to Eric's gravesite this week. I don't know why, but I feel closer to Eric when at his resting place. Knowing that he's literally "there", in the physical sense, makes baring his absense slightly easier. I even secretly tell myself that quite possibly, he's listening, or can hear my voice. In truth, the only real listening that's happening is from above, not below. Still, I'm pretty good at fooling myself. Six feet isn't so far. It's reason enough to believe, pretend, even convince myself, that what I say, matters more. My prayers won't go amiss.
I had a full week, hense less updates here. I apologize. I will try to do better next week. Too much going on, but honestly, I don't mind. It's good for me to get out and enjoy life!
Today's agenda includes sitting down at my scrapbook desk with the latest Elle's Studio kit. They'd recently hosted a giveaway of the kit at the Crate blog. I promised Elle, my sweet friend, that I'd give some love to the kit's contents and create something wonderful from them...should be relaxing, and fun.
A few final images from the visit..Ethan has been interacting more and more with Eric at the gravesite. He's even taken to brief conversations with him. When in the car on our way there, he suggested I "stay in the car" while he carried the flowers to "Dad". Of course, we both made the trip. I couldn't see letting him do it alone. It just goes to show you how much he loves his dad.
