    @DiamondLil Your journey is still very early. Emotions will occur with a remembrance, something that happens around you and you recall a memory or activity, etc. (((Hugs)))

    That's Penguinette1's birthday. But her bday leads to MrP's, Mother's Day and mine all in two weeks. That makes it a hard time for me.

    Each one of you will find something that allows you to remember your loved ones around or just after those important anniversaries. Your journeys continue--do you find it easy to sometimes speak about your loved ones concerning a memory, event or like or dislike or even talk to them aloud? I do now and then on my own and sometimes with certain friends, I'll mention their loved one and what would have she or he thought of something going on right now. It's my way of letting the friends know they might want to talk about their loved ones or cantankerous ones or whatever the deceased was to them.

    The only times I have managed to go to the cemetery to see Dad's spot is when I've gone alone and in conjunction with something else on my travels that day. I need that "space and quiet" to say what I want. And maybe trim the grass around the headstone, water the flowers or pinch off the spent flowers. Oh, speaking of watering-bring your own cup or container for water. In our city, the watering cans and jugs have been removed (they must be seen as high-touch items and not on the staff agenda of things to keep wiped down) from the faucets. This month is spring clean-up month, so it could be difficult to tend graves while the grounds are being revived by staff.
