On December 1st we attended a dedication put on by the funeral home we worked with for the girls of these beautiful garden dancers. We had been looking forward to it for awhile thinking it was going to be a lovely dedication in the garden, something celebratory to remember them by. Unfortunately it didn't quite go like that. I am not sure exactly what we didn't like about it, but it just wasn't what we were thinking it would be. Very mournful, sorrowful, and just a giant downer.
Don't get me wrong. It's sad. It's hard. The hardest and saddest thing we have ever been through. We didn't need a reminder of that. We were thinking it would be something beautiful and spiritual. Even at that, we couldn't argue with the beauty of the garden dancers. They are simply awesome.
When we brought them home Charlotte wanted to put them in our front yard near where she likes to play the most. We couldn't argue with that, they look wonderful there.
