Lunar Eclipse and my cat

Hello and thank you all for past encouragement and advice. My 40 year old daughter does ok at times and then not ok. She is still off/on with toxic boyfriend now age 47. How can a couple be that age and still do so many immature things?.. It is horrible. My daughter has had a few ok months meaning she has paid her bills and held a job.
My only sister died from breast cancer a week ago. I have been in shock and deeply sad.
My daughter's idea was for her to come over and watch the entire lunar eclipse with me, she even texted me the lunar schedule. At 2 A.M. I got out the sleeping bags, pillows, blankets, snacks and thought we were going to watch the eclipse since she was so excited about it and even said 'mom lets have a lunar party'. My husband was tired and not interested in viewing the lunar eclipse so it would just be her and me. At 2 A.M. I texted my daughter and told her that there are no clouds out and the view would be perfect. In my back yard I have the most perfect view. I unlocked the back gate so she could come in. I laid there on the sleeping bags waiting for her to come. She never showed up. I texted her around 5:15 AM and then she texted back saying she woke up thought she saw some clouds and went back to sleep. She knows how deeply I was grieving over my sister.. My cat stayed with me in the sleeping bags purring and looking at the eclipse with me. How can such a little creature give so much comfort and love. Saved by my cat again! I got to watch Gods presentation of a lunar eclipse.

This is so beautiful, newstart.
I am glad you came back to us.

Thank you all for your kindness, compassion, care and understanding. It has been a rough road as many of you understand. I was in Albuquerque for a while, such a beautiful city. The one thing that really bothered me about it was the open drug use. I saw people on the street corners shooting drugs, snorting and selling. I was horrified to see them do that and not care that the cops or anyone else can see it. It disturbs me that children are seeing this. I am horrified that they are doing this to their own bodies. I also know that drugs are out of hand in all cities but I never saw so much in your face drug use. That little cabin in the woods far away from everyone and anything is looking better and better to me. That is how my dad lived and I don't blame him a bit. He would say to me that he did not even want a phone and I am feeling the same way. Thank you Copa for your message 'I am glad you came back to us' warmed my heart also the compassion over my sister's death. Thank you KTmom91, Nandina, BusyNMember, Blightly, and Newksm for your support and compassion. Now I have to navigate my life through my sisters death, my daughter's on going bizarre behavior, our neighbors bizarre behavior plus my brother's health is not good. And in the midst of all this I have my wonderful stray black cat. He has an overbite, been bitten twice by a snake, does not have good balance, cross eyed, walks with a limp has a weird gurgle sound when he meows and is very picky what kind of food he will eat. He is the love of my life.
