Possession of Urn

The Cardinal Funeral Home finally called me this morning letting me know that my aunt's ashes is ready to be picked up.   I told the funeral home that I'll pick up the ashes tonight after work.   I didn't think about it until leaving at work, that I'm going to have  my aunt's ashes for 4 days and 5 nights at my house....so I started getting jittery about having it in my possession, let alone picking it up.   

For those who don't know me, I've shied away from watching horror movies because I end up imagining things that are not there.   It doesn't help that my brother and hubby feed into those weakness occasionally.    I debated about delaying picking up the ashes, even called Wallace to ask for his opinion.  In the end I picked up the urn.  

As I was driving home, the smoke from the exhaust started to take form  (see what I mean about my imagination going wild).  At any case, I thought to myself, my Aunt Gloria would be sad, if she finds out that I got scared of having her ashes in my possession.   I started feeling better about it and not being scared of it.  After all, it is my aunt's ashes, neatly placed in a beautiful green marble urn.  Oh boy is it heavy.

RIP my dear aunt.

Yes Marissa you need to think that your aunt loved you dearly. If in fact anything she would love it that you were have a special time with her even in her present state. Nothing to fear.
