Beautiful Day, Difficult Day
Beautiful day of peace and rest...for my dear sweet Luisa. Difficult day for her Mommy. Today we buried her body, in the cold, hard earth. In a beautiful plot, surrounded by trees and looking out towards the mountains. As we pulled up to the spot where Luisa would be buried, and our family started pulling up behind us, and I gazed out over the lovely cemetery it dawned on me that I, plain old, simple, average Kat Simon was just about to bury a child. A sweet, strong spirit, but my child. Oh, a mother should not have to bury her child. It feels so surreal. But mothers do. I'm not alone in this. But, wow. It. Was. Hard. But, beauty was still there. Peace was still felt. Love was there. I love her so very much. I am amazed by how such a small baby girl could have such a big impression on not only my life, but others lives as well. I am so grateful for the lessons that being her Mommy has taught me.
