I wrote a review under California if anyone is interested in these hot springs. I’ve been going to them for almost 40 years.

It was a rough day, depression over my mother’s death and other things that have happened. I know these things take time. Eventually it will be just another event in my life, currently it feels pretty raw.

My first birthday without her. No birthday call or card, it hit me today. I’ll never get one from her again.

Damn.

Blanch, it is like a big chunk of your life is just gone. Any time a chunk is lopped off it hurts deep.

That first birthday is like a body blow. I’m sorry you’re dealing with this.

It hit that way with my Dad. It was like I would reach for the phone to call him to ask advice and it hit me hard....he isn't there.....so now I just talk to him when I need. I just will be doing whatever and if something strikes me I would chat with him about, I just talk out loud to him and just have a conversation and get it off my chest and it helps me. I noticed I am also doing that a lot less now. I just say love ya and miss ya at night before bed and it seems that time does make things easier on all of us I guess. Sorry it is hard on you!! Your healing will happen.

Sorry it's tough on you. When my dad died, it was a relief as he had colon cancer and I was happy for him. It was a relief for me when mom went at 94 too. She had no quality of life near the end and I wish this on no one. They both had good lives and I hope I can go quickly instead of long and drawn out. Death means different things to different people.

edit to add: Where is that bottle of four roses?

My mother was fine in February when I saw her. She had health problems that were well managed. Basically she died because of a couple of hospital errors.

The lesson learned is to stay the hell out of hospitals. This was one of the best and highest rated hospitals in SoCal.

My parent’s passing was bitter sweet. I was glad yet had a horrible time with the grief. The grief was compounded by Mr Snik deciding he didn’t like having me around any more. I dealt with it and now I’m free.

Blanch, I could never claim to know what you are going through. I do know what it was like- to lose parents, and how it impacted my life.  (Some time, ask me about my 50th bday..)

I hope you found moments of peace and beauty on your birthday... and each day after.  

Cherish your grief, but do not cling too tightly to it, lest you lose sight of other parts of your life.

Blanch!! I missed your birthday! Well, happy belated birthday wishes to you. That boondocking spot looks amazing. I'd go visit if I was anywhere in the neighborhood, but I'm still in Happy Camp, for now. My mom left earth life in 2017 and I still have those thoughts of missing hearing from her. It was nice while it lasted. My father left in 2011 so now I'm officially an orphan, as my brother puts it. Yesterday my daughter phoned and walked me through turning my phone into a hotspot so I have a better connection now, and a nice big shade tree. All set for another day.
Peace...
