Today, it was just James and myself and our memories. We never did find our usual lambs to put on the grave site. We searched around and found something even better to us! We found beautiful plaid blue pinwheels and pink plaid pinwheels! We also found a butterfly and a dragonfly for each grave. They were beautiful as the wind made them twirl and sing! We were proud as punch to see those pinwheels going around! It was like they were singing and cheering the whole place up! We left satisfied and even though sad, joy was there also. We both are aware our children aren't there, but we do this to honor their site of burial. We have the matching pinwheels, butterflies to put in yellow sunny sand buckets to view as the ocean winds stir them at home with us. We fill peaceful.
Thank you Shauna, from over at Pinwheels From Heaven, for inspiring us!
Dressing up their footstones makes me feel that I am doing something for each child.
James does most of the work, bless him!

We didn't want to leave them. It was hard.
