The first of the month (Nov. 1st) was the 19th anniversary (if you can call it that) of my daughter's death. It's been 'one of those' weeks. You go along doing okay, but when the anniversary of a death comes up depression sorta sets in. Take the month of May for example. That's when my daughter Katrina was born. May has always been a wonderful month for me. It's just so beautiful..everything is coming up new. Birds are making nests and having babies. Flowers are blooming, the sun is bright and it's just a great start to summer. But then, one day in 1989 my mom died. And then my beautiful May became one of the those depressing months for me. And then my mother in law died on Katrina's birthday years later. How weird is that? And if that isn't weird enough years after that my father in law passed away in May. And now May that was once a month I so looked forward to is only a reminder of the people we loved and lost. And that is how it is with October through the new year.
Not too much is happening really. It's just been a slow month (haha). I am thinking about Christmas, though. It's time to get to the shopping. That can be a good thing and bad thing. :)
