A Strange Celebration
When a family is in mourning, some people can easily get upset by or misinterpret other people’s actions. This poor lady got reprimanded by her mother during her grandmother’s funeral. The funeral was, oddly enough, held on the grandmother’s birthday. Because our storyteller knew her grandmother would have loved it, she brought “Happy Birthday” balloons to the funeral.
Her mom got really upset when she saw the balloons because she thought it was a distasteful prank. Turns out, the mom just forgot it was the grandmother’s birthday because she was so sad. Once everything was explained and out in the open, everyone thought it was a really sweet, funny gesture.
