Laynee's gravemarker was set a few days ago. The one thing I did not want to happen, happened. I did not want any of us to go to the cemetary and find that, unbeknownst to us, the stone had been set. I had hoped that we could go, as a family, to see it for the first time. For this reason, I practically begged the vault/monument company to notify us before setting it. I specifically said, "I don't want it to just appear one day." He assured me that would not happen, "absolutely we will call you the day we are going to set it." They didn't. I'm not exactly sure why this surprises me as they have been notorious for not calling when they say they will, and for not getting things done in the length of time they give.
CS Lewis once said that "grief is like the sky, it covers everything." In recent weeks, our family has found that this is so very true. It seems that there is no right or wrong way to travel this path of grief. I have created this blog in hopes that some day we will be able to look back on our journey and see written proof that our great God never leaves us. God is good all the time.
