It Comes in Threes

As you know, it has been a difficult beginning of the year. Your support and well wishes have touched my heart and I am profoundly moved and feel bad that I have not resumed reading blogs and posting as I would have liked. I have had a a difficult time and it started when our pipes burst in our bathroom.

To get to the pipes my hubby had to uproot the floor and it became a complete gut. Thankfully, we have another bathroom. This bathroom, though, acted up and we had to buy a part for the toilet and a shower head.

The following week, my mom died and it has been a sad time. She is in a better place and she had a Long life but I miss her so and have missed her for 8 years since she got dementia. The funeral, which was yesterday, was beautiful and I think she would have been happy.  If you wish to watch the video and red her obituary, you can go here... https://dartefuneralhome.com/tribute/details/6313/Elfriede-Bedesky/obituary.html#tribute-start

This past Friday, I was in a car accident. I am aok!!!! But the car is done and I felt so very stupid and ashamed and still do. It was totally my fault as I ran into a pick up. I tried to stop but couldn’t and hit him which resulted in a tiny dent on his truck but ours is done. I was, needless to say, very upset and still am. I have to adjust to my mom now being with my dad, the money needed to fix the bathroom and now having to look for a car. I am just so tired and numb so my apologies if I am not here as much.

  1. That's terrible! But a blessing no one was hurt. Yes, it really sucks when it's your fault.

  3. That sucks a ton. Even more so when it is your fault. Good no one was hurt though. Cars can at least be replaced. Even though it is a pain in the arse.

  4. Birgit, no-one expects you to read or write blogs at this time. Obviously you have far more important things on your mind - which also probably explains the accident, you were distracted. Take care of yourself! I’m glad the funeral was beautiful. I watched the tribute, it’s lovely and I smiled when the little blonde girl appeared. The picture of you at the end hugging her in front of the tree says everything about your relationship. *Hugs*.

  5. That was a beautiful tribute to your mom, Birgit. Thanks for sharing her story and photos with the world. No doubt they will continue in time. I'm glad nothing serious happened to you. Hugs with much love to you.

  6. We'll keep the light on for you, and I look forward to better days ahead for you dear. I am sure the accident you had was partly due to what was going on in the rest of your life. Just know I'm sending positive thoughts and a virtual hug, too.

  7. Blame the accident on the stress of losing your mother along with the bathroom stuff. It's probably true.

    I'm so sorry for all that you're going through. Glad to hear you're OK after the accident. I hope the worst is over.

  8. I'm glad you weren't injured. Last February, I was in a car accident the day after I got home from the hospital. We get distracted and shit happens.

    Love,
    Janie

  9. I'm sorry to hear that, I've come close to hitting a few people. But one day, I'm sure it will happen

  10. Nothing to apologize for. At least you are safe and sound. As the world turns, the sun will shine again.

  12. Oh dear Birgit, I am so sorry to hear about your mom and everything else you have going wrong at the moment. I think I have problems, they pale besides yours at the moment. I too haven't been reading as many blogs as I should, my apologies.

  13. Hi Birgit - don't worry ... it's good to know what's going on - and yes things tend to happen in threes. I know things will improve and you'll be remembering your mother happily - those three things - they do occur ... just take care and all the best sorting things out.

    It is lovely to be able to read about your mother - my thoughts on yesterday - cheers Hilary

  14. You shouldn't be so hard on yourself. Accidents happen, and with everything that's been going on in your life, it's understandable that you aren't quite yourself. Big hugs.

  15. Hi Birgit, it does sure seem to come in threes. I'm so sorry that 2018 hasn't started off good for you. Grief is really tough to get through but you will get through. The love of your mom --that you had for her and that she had....and still has...for you will drive you through all the yuck in life.
    Keep the faith! There's lots of us out here keeping positive thoughts for you.
