Forget Me Not's


Last Friday I went with a friend to go and get a tattoo. When it comes to tattoos for me they must have meaning and this one is just that. I got it on my foot. It is 5 forget me not flowers. When Kael passed away Primary Children's had a little "ceremony" type thing to remember all the children lost in the previous year. They sent us a invitation in the mail and so we decided to go. It was a lovely service they played a video they had made of all the children, it showed their picture, name and their dates. They had lovely speakers and songs. Once it was over they had each of the families go out to their patio type area to tie ribbons and write notes to their loved ones, they also served refreshments for all of the family members. It broke my heart to see all of those sweet kids. Also at the ceremony they gave each family packets of forget me not flowers.. it was perfect I loved them, they are blue and remind me of Kael. So i got 5 flowers blue in color one for each month Kael lived. Now I know tattoos are not for everyone but it is so special to me and I love looking down at it and knowing why its there and what if means. Please don't judge my foot as it is still swollen from the tattoo itself but I am sure loving how it turned out! I think the artist did a great job.
P.S. Daxton drew this picture today and gave it to me. He told me it was of him and Kael (notice how the one boy has wings, he told me he misses watching the cougars with Kael and that he thought Kael would love his picture.. isn't it so sweet? It melted my heart!) What a kind, sweet boy Daxton is!!

I have two tattoos, one on each forearm, to remember my beloved grandson who passed tragically at 2 yrs 11 mo. May God grant you peace. I am still searching.
