Happy Birthday To Me....Yeah Right!

So, today is my birthday. Go me.

Not a whole lot to say about the day, except that it is already sucking pretty bad.

Yesterday, I finally picked out an urn for my husband. I hope I still like it when I see it again. I am partial to wooden ones but I wanted the option of being able to use a niche someday (when I die) and they do not allow wood inside niches. (I suppose that means no wooden photo frames either, which if you know me I only have wooden ones.)

It was hard to pick a urn that was both manly and nice. The one I picked out is brown but unfortunately has a ribbon of flowers on it. I called my sister-in-law and asked if she thought it would be ok to get that one because it really was the nicest of all the ones that could go into the niche.

I decided to get a matching one for my daughter. It means she will be transferred from her current ugly urn to this one which is much nicer. I hope it doesn't disturb her spirit. I will be ordering another one for me, so that when the time comes, it will be available and we'll all match.

Today, I have a whole lot of things to do. It is partly my fault because I was so lazy on Wednesday.

Tomorrow is the funeral. I'll be glad to have it over and done with, and to have my husband at home again. He has not been home since mid-October and I miss him.

Gentle birthday wishes to you, Ter. The urn that you picked out for Bear sounds lovely -- and I like that you got a matching one for Baby Bear. I'm betting Bear won't mind that his has flowers on it.

I will be thinking of you tomorrow as you endure the funeral ... I am glad for you, though, that you'll have Bear home with you afterwards.

(((Hugs)))

I know it is a bad day...I am glad that you got the matching urns for your baby bear and big bear...you are entitled to have lazy days...take them as you need them...I took them when my Father passed...take those grieving days you need them to heal...I think that Bryan's song is beautiful...you know that I am still thinking of you...

Hugs Ter. So glad you found an urn for Bryan. And for Tyla. How nice that they will be matching :) I don't think it will disturb her spirit at all if you move her to a new urn!

Hope your birthday had at least one moment just for you.

Jo
