Today we took my Mom on a little road trip with us.
This is life when you lose a parent too young. This is real life with grief, coping, healing and learning to laugh every minute of it that you can.
My brother and I drove around with her ashes in the seat while we sang along to all her favorite songs.
We took her favorite drive to the beach where we would later let her go.
Today was extremely emotional.
Tonight I'm showing you the laughter and the joy. The side where my brother and I laughed so hard because I buckled my Mom into the car seat. You can see her back there in the little box all buckled in.
The part where we could care less about what others might think about how we are dealing with our grief.
In the next few days I'll show you the emotional side from today.
It was messy.
For now enjoy this stroll down memory lane with us and our Mom and all her favorite songs.
