Our first Mother's Day after Pierce's suicide, our good friends, the Griffin's, let us use their beach house in Florida so we wouldn't have to be home that first Mother's Day without him.
We went & took Robbie, Morgan's best friend, with us, because I couldn't bear the thought of checking in at restaurants and saying party of three.
It was very good for us to get out of town, to escape our surroundings. It was so peaceful and relaxing.
On our last day, we were sitting on the beach and Morgan strolled out into the water. She had her back to us and suddenly, she turned her head to the left and smiled. She could sense that Pierce was out in the water with her.
We have continued the 'new' tradition of going to the beach for Mother's Day, and we leave tomorrow. We both are so looking forward to going, recharging our batteries, after getting through March and April. I don't see us undoing this tradition, for March and April will always remain difficult!
