To celebrate my mom's birthday we decided to start a tradition of sending our thoughts to heaven. Normally Brett just humors me with my crazy ideas but this one, I could tell, was special to him. My mom was special to all of us. It was very therapeutic to write down my feelings and actually feel like my mom would somehow get them. Jane and Tobe believed and so did I.
Brett later took me out. We met up with some friends to celebrate Beth's birthday and then Brett and I went to dinner just the 2 of us.
A friend of mine had told me that certain holidays and birthdays (mine and my mom's) would be difficult. I think the reason it was so difficult is because the day comes and the void is noticed. There is no one here to celebrate. I loved sending the balloons to heaven because it actually felt like we had the chance to wish her a Happy Birthday and she knew it:)
We Celebrated You Mom!!
