How would you honor the first anniversary of a beloved lost loved one who passed away?
Two weeks from Tuesday, it would mark the one-year anniversary since my mother passed away. My brother would be out-of-state for work, while I might be at the gym, taking a soak in the hot tub, like I did on her birthday last fall. I'm also planning to take a memorial to downtown to the water fountain, make some wishes, and meditate, before I head back home? Just curious on your thoughts.
My father built a memorial in his yard for my sister. My mother, other sister, brother, and I light a candle at ten AM every morning on my deceased sisters birthday.
I think anything that honors her memory is lovely. Did she have a favorite dish or something she was known for? We honored my grandma by making one of her desserts she always made. You can also just light a candle for that person and consciously focus on happy memories that day. I think your ideas all sound lovely. in the end, it should be healing for you and uplifting as much as possible. Grief is hard - so be gentle with yourself.
