Oh I know its Friday and Fridays are always great. Its the last day of school for my girls and who doesn't love the last day of school. Its a day full of so much promise and potential. Even if that promise and potential is days full of Pj's and Netflix. Its the start of a three day weekend. Need I even go on about how awesome those little rarities are?
But today is the anniversary of the death of a friend of Emmy's. Yesterday they graduated from elementary and in August will start a new chapter as middle schoolers. The school added her name to the program with a cross beside it that said passed on posthumously. I could barely keep it together. I really tried not to cry as I have every year this anniversary roles around.
I held back the tears yesterday when Emmy and her friends sang "See you Again" I swear its like they were singing to her.
I tried not to cry when Emmy wanted to pose with her memorial table.
And this weekend I will try not to cry when we visit the cemetery on what would be her birthday. Its become a tradition. Emmy wants to visit on Alexis's birthday and take her a gift.
I wasn't very successful when we made the visit last year.
