A day I won't forget

Posted on October 12, 2010 at 11:10pm 0 Comments

Today would have been my Mom's 81st birthday. It is also the day I wrote and finished her obituary. Its been two weeks since she passed away and I couldn't bring myself to write and finish an obituary for her. I could not write a word for over 8 days...it just hurt too much. But for some reason I woke up this morning at 4am and finished her obituary. How strange and sad that her birthday was the day I wrote it. I don't know what made me do it this morning...perhaps she told me to get it behind… Continue

We weren't finished yet.

Its been nine long days since my Mom passed away. How could she be gone? How could it be 9 days already? The sadness get worse every single day. I always knew someday she would be gone but there is nothing to compare to the reality of knowing I'll never hear her voice again or ever see her the rest of my life. I can't believe I will never get another phone call from her or be able to call her and ask for that favorite recipe. I already miss our shopping trips, the daily phone calls, the time… Continue

People say it gets easier, but I dont ever think you are the same.  I try to come to grips with what happened, but you have your ups and downs and try to live one day at a time.  I have can find peace someday....

Dotties Daughter....I have read your post and have to say I feel the same way you do.  But, we have to take in perspective how we felt about our parents and then, move on from there... You will be fine...I lost my dad suddenly in June and cant tell you what an impact it has had on my life...only that I will live my life to the fullest and that is what he would want....Thanks...Michelle

Dottie's Daughter - You are so hard on yourself! tomorrow will be hard, you know that, so be easy on yourself. What do YOU need? do you need a day alone, to show up for Thanksgiving having not cooked? or cook a special dish for you and your mom and cry the whole time but don't bring it to your dinner. You cannot expect to cook and act fine - your best friend is missing, healing is a process. Find support, it is out there, find a group, a therapist someone who is going throught the same. You may not be able to cook and clean and do all that you did before right away, be kind to yourself. You had so much with your mom, such a blessing.
Tomorrow for me will be difficult, it has been four years in September for me. My father was only 56, he was my best friend, we hiked, we traveled, I adored him, now never again will I hear his voice. His favorite holiday was Thanksgiving, he told me it was the perfect holiday, giving thanks, being with family, eating good food. I am so sorry your mom is not here with you tomorrow, but she is, just in a different way. Not in the way we want them tha tis for sure. I will say a prayer for you tomorrow and think of you and your mom cooking together, she will be there, just not like before.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. I remember when my own mother passed and I was devastated. If I can offer any advice at all it's to say that it does get better with time. I know your mom would be missing you too - so remember to live for the both of you. Hugs to you.
