Christopher and I went to Church this morning. A lot of people stopped to say hello and said it was good to see me back at church.
I went through the motions as I couldn’t bring myself to pray to God or take part in the service. I didn’t even go up for communion. I went because I promised Christopher that I would.
Anyway, tomorrow is my birthday, my mom thought it would be nice to celebrate it with my family since it was going to be the first without Rich. Well, that was nice though two of my brothers didn’t bother to show. I now know where they stand in the scheme of things. Moving on…
It turned out nice anyway. Then at 6:30 I along with my mom, Jeanne, Vanessa, Cameron, Nora and Christopher went to Home Depot. I wanted to thank the staff and management for their support and kindness. I brought with me the big shadow box I had made with some of his Rich’s home depot badges and the apron many of the staff signed. They in turn put on a power point show with a beautiful song (brought me to tears ), then one of Rich’s Rick Keeler asked the manager if they could do a clap out for Rich. I know Rich would have been so proud and humbled by this clear demonstration of how much he was thought of.
After that we went back to Mike and Kim’s for cake. Christopher had a good day as he got to ride his gater at uncle Mike’s. I received really nice gifts. Kim a
and Mike purchased a gift for Christopher to give to me. It was a wooden photo box with pictures of Christopher with Dad on the tractor, with mike on the tractor and so on, with a cute little card. Christopher knew about the present but he didn’t tell me.
Nora and Tammy were over last night and stayed until 12.
I ordered Christopher a big boys bed from Ikea, and it should arrive by Oct. 6. The bed will extend as the child grows. He sleeps most nights on the couch after he wakes ups around 2 or 3 in the morning.
A year ago today Bettly Fleming passed away. I remember you better and I honour your spirit. I hope you are having a great time and kicking up your Scottish heals! Have a scotch for me Betty. Blessed be.
