My Christmas with Katie

On a Saturday morning where I was scheduled to drive out to Leduc to visit my mom, I took some time out to visit the cemetery to clean it up and put some decorations up.

Keeping in mind that it was -33, I hope you'll understand that it was a quick trip.

Katie's grave was pretty full of snow.

Fortunately, I'd planned ahead and brought my car scraper.

Some quick work dusting and sweeping, and recovering all the little people from the snow, and the work was done.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get our barbecue lighter to light but it's definitely more festive.

With my new job, mom in the hospital and everything seeming to come together just a little too quickly, I've definitely been feeling stress.  It was good to get away from that and gain a little perspective.  Even if it was just a short time.

Thank you so much for going, just so you know you never have to go if it's -33. My goodness you are a good friend. This year I've missed Katie terribly over the holidays, I'm not sure if it's the fact that we haven't been back home for me to stand at her spot, or perhaps all the new babies. But my heart is so grateful to you for tending to our Katie in such a loving way. Thanks for clearing her off and sprucing up her spot up. The decorations are beautiful and so are you.

All my sincerest love and gratitude.
We miss all of you Jonstones!! Thanks again Erron
