Have have posted on here before but since my husband died 13th July I have stuck certain things in a basket in my mind which I will let out later one of these is this. Tomorrow would have been his birthday what do other people do I am inclined to treat it as any other day which I think he would have wanted me to do
I am in the same situation as it would be my husbands birthday this weekend . I have decided that I will buy a birthday card as I always have done and spend the day remembering what an amazingly handsome generous man he was before cancer stole him from me and hope that he knows how much he is loved and missed
It was my husband’s birthday today, the second one since he died. I have got him a birthday card which is sitting on the side, in couple of days I will put it in my memory box.
After work, I spent time with my family and I did post a memory on Facebook as did both our children. On this day last year we scattered his ashes in the sea.
Usually I mark the day by getting something for our garden his favourite place. But this year I have ordered a memorial bench to be put in our local park where he used to spend many happy hours watching our son play football.
I was going to get a card but have a candle but I am going to go to the garden centre and buy him a shrub something we did every year,
@Debbie57 what a lovely idea, I need to put more thought into how I mark occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries etc
@Heather56 sounds lovely, i now have some really good ideas
