paying respects

Visited the graveside of my grandparents and 2 great-grandmothers. My sis brought her daughter so we were telling her that she was visiting her great-great-grandmother.

I feel privileged to have the oppurtunity to pay my respects to them. The cemetary is getting bigger and the last few times we’ve visited, they play soothing music / hymns over the loudspeaker. It’s got a nice atmosphere.

I “gave permission” mm to spend the day with her friends, so we didn’t see each other. I’d like to think we don’t have the sort of relationship where one needs permission from the other to spend time outside the relationship. We both want us to have an open relationship and we have our own free time.

I’m glad she has other friends and keeps in touch with them. Imagine having to be with me 24/7, enough to make her blechy, hee.
