head stone

its taken me a little while to post this...
mainly because its now so real.
its there,
in stone,
the day she was born and the day she returned to heaven.
i love where she rests.
its a peaceful place.
i have spent many hours there.
i have a box of supplies for my visits.
we read.
we play music.
we have a bubble machine.
we have toys.
we have blankets.
we have treats.
we have balloons.
we tell stories.
we cry.
we laugh.

I was pretty much obsessed with sonic cherry limeades throughout my whole pregnancy. ryan would drive around for what seemed like hours looking for a sonic. i was desperate!
i always thought, this girl is going to loveeee them because she had them so much.
i thought around the time she started eating baby food i would give her a taste of my cherry passion.
she never got a taste.
but i still bring her one.

missing this girl beyond words.

Kendra you were an amazing mother to Makenzie while she was here on this earth and you continue to be an amazing mother to her while she is free in heaven. Everything that you do while you are there visiting is so special and thoughtful. I love that you bring her a cherry limeade. For some reason that one really made me cry. I am sure she really loves being read to. The headstone is beautiful. I love the saying and I love the balloons on it. Always thinking and praying for you. Much love!!
