    Default One last hurdle Dozer's birthday is only a few days away

    Ok so I have really been doing better the last week or so. A lot less crying. I am still sad and I miss him horribly but it gets a bit better each day . Well Dozer's bday is October 4th and Idk what that is going to bring. We had planned to have a big party for him. Now I don't get to do anything for him and it breaks my heart that I never got to give my boy a party or watch him grow up.
    If tears could build a staircase and happy memories a lane, I could walk right up to Heaven and bring you home again!

    OUCH! You can still have a celebration for him... why not?
    I have no idea how you feel, but do what you need to get through the day regardless of what anyone says or tells you - do what you need to do.

    I know it hurts. Whatever you decide to do on Dozer's birthday, make sure you are extra gentle on yourself too. He was a much loved boy and I truly, truly believe he's in a very happy place right now.

    Have a party..celebrate his life! You have a very special guest now too! It's okay to cry...but it's important to celebrate..let a balloon go..so dozer can show his friends at the bridge...just not a metallic one!! Change the party a tad..but DON'T cancel it!

    Awwwww, hang in there and you cry as much as you need to, it's part of the healing process. I like the balloon idea too. My Aunts and Mom do that every year on my grammy's BD. We all heal in different ways, you do what you need to do and if it's having a party for Dozer then have one in his memory.

    i agree with having the party anyway just a different one than you had planned. whatever you do is ok. there are no rules for grieving and everyone does it different.

    I love the balloon idea too. You can also write Dozer a happy birthday card...maybe to express the feelings of love you have for him on paper, and then read it to him. That's something i've done in the past for my loved ones who have passed away.

    Awww. I just want to hug you @dozersmama. I agree with everyone, you should still do something to celebrate his life if that's what you want to do! Any way to express emotions is usually a help I think. Lots of love to you from me and Chunk!!!

    I love the balloon idea and the letter. Im so sorry you are going through this. You do whatever you have to do on that day to get through it. There is no wrong way. Major hugs headed your way.
