My sacred space is my Milo’s grave.
We chose Akeley as his final resting place as a lot of my family is interred there. We checked out the local churchyard so he would be close to us but it wasn’t right. Akeley is perfect. It is quiet and peaceful. My Milo is buried with my paternal grandparents. He is safe with them.
I don’t spend as much time there as I would like to (would be there every week) but when I am there I like to read to my Milo and just be. I can fully relax when sitting talking to my boy. In the summer I take a picnic and the other kids come down for a short while and it is the closest I get to having all my children with me.
