Happy Birthday February 1st!

Today marks another day that my Father is no longer with me. Today would have been his birthday. I always sing the song to my relatives, ancestors and friends who have gone on before me. I remember the value they brought to my life and I hope they can hear me from afar. I want them to know I shall never ever forget them and that I cherish the joy they gave to me.

  1. My father has been gone for 34 years, and I still miss him so very much. When I lost my mother as well several years ago, I truly felt like an orphan, out there in the eye of the storm, with no parents to protect me. Luckily for me they taught me to be strong, so I’m okay. But I still miss them.

  2. T: I do the same thing. I am a product of my ancestors, but I use the day March 31. Both my parents died that day, albeit years apart, and it was my grandmother’s birthday. She outlived all her children to the seasoned age of 99.
    I was thinking about this yesterday, a place I could go where everyone I loved, dead or alive, would be there. Every September, the Berkshire Garden Center would have their annual get together. Alice (from Alice’s Restaurant) made borscht, music, and every one nearby would show. That is what I hope to see on the other side of the painted veil: Everyone waiting for me at the Garden Center, happy and free of necessity.
    Thanks for writing this post.

    • This sounds like you have it all worked out. Lovely.

      My Papa and Nannie (Father’s parents) died the same day six years apart, him first. I always think he came back for her.

      My husband’s best friend’s parents died the same day, 18 years apart, him first.

      Sort of romantic. 🙂
