Capture Your Grief - Day 9
Day 9 - Today is supposed to be a picture of a special place. For Mama's who have buried a child, it seems that all places become special. Or at least that's the way it is for me. While Erik was alive, we tried to take him to a lot of different and fun places. We didn't have a lot of money, but we made the best of what we did have.
The one place that sticks out to me the most would probably be Myrtle Beach, SC. Erik only got to see the beach once and that breaks my heart because the beach is one of my favorite places. Erik was just shy of 2 years old when we went and he HATED it!!!! He enjoyed playing in the sand, but had to be washed off all the time because he didn't like the way the sand felt after a while. He hated the ocean and wanted no part of it until the very last day. The tide had washed away and a small pool was left in the sand. He played and played and played in that hole.
