The next day, we went to Mount Battie which has the most beautiful views. We go every year and it's just breathtaking.

Just as we were heading back to the car to leave, I looked over and saw Isaiah picking flowers. He LOVES to give me flowers... he's so sweet. He handed me a bundle and as he did, he said "Here Mama, these are for Rachel's grave."
Well, those little "weeds" lasted ALL WEEK LONG. I've never seen anything like it. The kids bring in flowers from the yard all the time, I put them in water and by that night, they are dead. Not these ones....
On the 3rd, we picked a few more to add to the glass for her 9 month birthday.
They were perfect and meant so much more than spending $15 on a bouquet that probably would have died quicker! It really remided me that sometimes, our greatest gifts come in the most unexpected and simple packages - the ones that wouldn't be your first plan, but end up being even better.... just like Rachel.
