This time last year our son, Mike, passed away. It’s hard to articulate feelings of how much my husband and I miss our son…how his death has left a crater in our lives. We think of Mike and his golden heart, his universal kindness, every day.
To ease the pain of March 14, the one year anniversary of him leaving us, we thought it best to spend it out at the Lake, in B.C. Things are different there. Peace and relaxation and nature surrounds us.
It really helps, being at the Lake. The radiant sunshine, crystal-clear blue skies and rivers of melting snow are like balm for a broken heart.
We drove to Beeland in Spillimacheen, B.C. , a tiny town in the Columbia Valley. I love buying blackberry, raspberry and blueberry honey there.
We stopped at the trail head for theBugaboo Staging Area.
Back in Invermere, a Mama Deer owns the road.
Then she stopped and posed for me, which I really appreciated.
Her yearling was more comfortable hiding in the trees.
Kinsmen Beach, in the winter, transforms into a place for skating and walking the Whiteway.
At the end of the day, both my husband and I felt just a little better. Still facing another year and a lifetime without our son, we had found some peace at the Lake.
I am so sorry for your loss. Your pictures are lovely. It all looks so peaceful.
Thank you so much Elaine.
