It's creeping up on the 1-year anniversary of my dad's passing. (Can you believe it? This year has flown by!)
My mom mentioned the other day that I should "think about what to do for dad's anniversary". I'm ashamed to admit, I hadn't considered what to do, or really that I should be do-ing something. (ATM, I'm pre-occupied figuring out what is appropriate for what would have been my parents 36th wedding anniversary, on 9/13)
Spending the day visiting the cemetery and being woeful isn't what my dad would have wanted, and frankly not something I care to force, much less expect as a tradition on that day. I suggested we bbq and invite our family friends over- after all, bbqing was one thing my dad wouldn't miss.
What are some things you do to celebrate the lives of your loved ones?
