Topic: parents anniversary
It seems that life has become a bit more of a struggle for me since Dad's death. I thought I had it all together after he died, but the last couple of weeks have been tough...not sleeping, overeating, not wanting to be around people. I am working on shaking this one minute at a time.
...I need some sage advice. My parents anniversary is this weekend. I am planning to take my mom away for the weekend, but should I do/say anything regarding the anniversary? Is it appropriate to give her an anniversary card? Any gift ideas that would be meaningful? We celebrated dad's birthday with a dinner out at his favorite restaurant (which we did every year) and visited fond memories. But it was bittersweet, just three weeks after he died. I would like to acknowledge this special day for her, but am not sure how far to push it. Since my brain is complete mush lately, I would welcome any suggestions. It would be their 51st anniversary. Dad's been gone 6 weeks.
