One of our closest friends (me and my mother’s) passed away this year after being unconscious for a week battling an aneurysm.
Almost one month later Merlin (mom’s soul mate and cat) was put to sleep after the doctor found cancer in his stomach area.
I’m fully aware that Samhain is meant to honor your deceased ones, to celebrate their life… But I just can’t bring myself to it.
This holiday season will be rough for us both. I hope I don’t break into tears during the Thanksgiving speech.
You both will be missed terribly
•go to the bathroom to escape
•feel very uncomfortable without a phone or some other crutch
•dwell on a small awkward moment for much longer than necessary
•never go to any social event without a person that makes you feel comfortable
•follow said person way too much
•worry about the person beginning to find you obnoxious
•faking an illness to get out of a social event
•Don’t buy something necessary because the cashier is intimidating.
