It is my 63rd birthday today and I never thought that I would be on my own without my Philmore. I had already presents and two cards from my friends and one friend popped in to see me. And I just received a lovely bunch of flowers from Sandra, whom I met in this forum. I also treated myself to a very nice (and naughty) cherry and almond cake with a lovely cup of coffee. But it is not the same anymore and I miss my husband’s smile and holding hands with him and there is that deep sadness that is always there, but I made it so far and will also make this long weekend. I wish you all a peaceful weekend and send love and hugs.
Just a small token as I know it has been really hard for you recently. Helping you makes me feel better. I am glad other people have also remembered. Happy birthday and I am sure your husband is looking down. Love and hugs. Sandra
Sending very best wishes, it sounds as though your birthday hasn’t been too bad, although very sad without your dear husband. Hope the rest of the weekend is ok.
Sending hugs, love Rosemary x
Hi Annaessex - I realise it is not the birthday that you ever want to have without your lovely Philmore, but all best wishes to you. I do hope you have a peaceful, calm & tranquil weekend yourself. Love & hugs to you. Alison xxx
@Annaessex Happy Birthday. Glad you managed to have a nice ish day. Although these days will always be tinged with sadness without our loved ones. Sending hugs.
Happy Birthday to you! My birthday was a few weeks ago. My first without my beloved mum. I know the pain we feel. Hurts so bad. At least it sounds like you managed to have a pretty good day. You made it, whatever. Hugs xx
Happy Belated Birthday. Xx
@Annaessex Sorry it’s your first Birthday without your handsome chap. Also sorry this is late, I’ve only just read it. I’m glad you managed to make the best of things.
I had actually a good birthday yesterday. I received a nice bunch of flowers from Sandra (pudding), a few cards and even a parcel from my German friend. After a few phone calls my friend popped in for a few minutes as well unexpectedly. I treated myself to a nice but naughty cake with whipped cream and a nice cup of coffee. But in the evening I felt so terribly sad, alone, and lost without my Philmore. Sending love and hugs to every one.
I am so glad my flowers made your day bearable. Obviously you were going to be sad at some point in the day.
So sorry for your loss, 63 is young still. A death robs you of what could have been and all the time you could have spent together with a loved one, it takes a part of you that should not needed to be taken away, and replaces it with a void and emptiness.
