The Ramblings of a Former Caregiver
That was a nice picture from I'm thinking last birthday? betty
Yes Betty this was taken last year!
Well....he was a Capricorn,of course he was wonderful.
He looks like a sweet sweet man! Linda in VA
He was Linda. The sweetest! Most of the time
I'm sure you miss him very much Paula. I imagine this picture and others like it are of great comfort to you and the kids.
Yes, I am glad we have the pictures. We do miss him very much
Oh, goodness. He was almost a New Year's baby.
Not quite as close as my brother who was born on December 31!
Hugs and love your way.
Thank you Aleshea
Speaking just from my own experience ... I think our loved ones' birthdates are the hardest. I mean, people are prone to remember you on the anniversary of someone's passing, but how many remember his/her birthday? I like what Sarah Ban Breathnach writes about "Silent Anniversaries of the Heart."Hope you don't think this sounds stupid, but I've often wondered if their (earthly) dates of death aren't now new, Heavenly birthdays. Hugs!
Yes the birthdays are hard. Both my son and all the grandchildren remembered this year. It helped me through it. Interesting idea about their Heavenly birthdays. The girls and I discussed it and Paige said...".so Papa now has two birthdays. That's cool"s
A lovely picture!
Thank you Fanci I have missed you!
Richard was blessed with so much love.
We were blessed for loving him.
Just looking at the picture and reading your blog you can tell that Richard was very loved and taken care of. He looked happy and I am sure his spirit is still all around you. Your strength is something to be proud of!
Richard WAS very loved and he loved us so much as well. I don't know about my strength. Sometimes I feel so weak and lost without him.
Very sweet of both of you. Still must be hard.
Thank you Sharon. Yes, it is hard. I suppose it always will be
I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
