Hi Bobbie I am sorry about your loss. I lost my dad 12/8/09. My birthday was yesterday I felt lonely even when my family was there. His birthday is friday and fathers day on sunday, he's not here and it hurts.
I am copeing but I too break down and cry when I'm by myself. I pray for everyone who has lost a loved one and myself.
Remember they are close to us if we always keep them in our hearts.
Crying and breaking down is a normal process of grieving I think, so don't feel bad for doing it It wouldn't happen if I didn't love these who leave us at times too soon ( we think ). Hugs and prayers
I am so sorry for your loss. This will not get easier before it gets so much more difficult! Please let yourself go and cry and grieve...even if your children see. This is an important part of life and the grieving journey for them to see, and for you to share with them in a private sort of way. My Mom passed suddenly a year ago Feb. 22, 2009, and it is still so difficult for me to get through some days. My siblings think there is something wrong with me, but everyone's journey is their own and is entirely different...even in the same family. Pay no attention to the time table others want for you, and be true to yourself and your emotions. Just as there is no time limit on true love, there is no time limit on grief. Please take time to let yourself go and cry. I'm here if you need me.
Hugs, thoughts and prayers,
