Today would have been mana vecmāmiņa's 85th birthday, if she had lived. Yesterday we committed her's and my grandfather's ashes to the ground.

"Tu gribe?" (My mother asked if I wanted some of the ashes.)
"Nē. (Jo mana kārta būs, ja tas ir jums, kas ir pagājis)."

That's really the only time I cried yesterday.

Right now, I am burning an insense that reminds me of her. And "Pūt Vējiņi" playing on in my head.

I'm drawn ever closer to my heritage; I believe as a respect for mana vecmāmiņa's life. It appears to be affecting my mother and aunt in the same way.

I'm practicing speaking Latvian to the cat. Heh.

I'm sorry i haven't been a very good friend lately. I have been so wrapped up in my own problems that i forgot about your grief. Please forgive me.

I know the power of depression; I hold nothing against you.

I am taking care of xlife_n_deathx's cat until she can get back on her feet.

Ah I see I somehow missed that. I knew you once had your sister's cat but then I got lost. What a great friend you are.

What a great friend you are.
She's the best friend I've ever had and probably ever will. I don't know what I'd do without her.

Aww, thanks Steph. *hugs*

You are so under-valued by all the people around (ie. close proximity) you. :(

Oh yeah, then my sister got her own place so I have been cat-less for just under a year. But now I have Gizmo to keep me company for the time being.
