Just lost my mom April 1, 2011

I just lost my mom on April 1, 2011.  I am really struggling with this and am having a hard time moving on.  It almost seems that it gets harder each day.  I feel completly lost without her.  She was my everything and we had such an awesome bond.  She had a cancerous tumor on her calf and had her leg amputated July 14, 2010.  The cancer was sarcoma.  They said the next place it goes is the lungs.  Never in a million years did I think it would come back.  We found out on Jan 3, 2011 it was…

Allow Yourself to Remember

Remembering happy memories or looking at photos may be painful at first but in time may help you to heal rather than bring pain.  Writing down pleasant memories in a journal or keeping a list of things you wish you could have said to your loved one when he or she was alive may help. Writing may also provide you with a healthy outlet for your emotions.  What about keeping mementos? Because everyone grieves…

Remembering, Missing and Honoring Mothers

Margaret and Randolph Thrower Sweetbay Magnolia Grove at the Atlanta Botanical Garden Right on the stiletto heels of spring, eye-popping and heady heights of color and bounce – here comes Mother’s Day!



But for those of us without our mothers, even if you are one, it can feel more like a flat-footed event – particularly as Mother’s Day has gained commercial and emotional momentum over the years.



When my mother died, in 1968 at age 45, Mother’s Day was noted with breakfast in bed or by taking some special chores off her plate or by planting a…

More than Mom on Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day with my family wasn’t just about Mom. It was about Grandma Linn and Grandma Zurawski, too. Because my grandparents lived at the opposite ends of Chicago, we usually saw Grandma Linn on Saturday and then gathered with the other side of the family and Grandma Zurawski on Sunday. My sister Denise and I often drew cards and pictures for our mom but also for our grandmothers, in particular Grandma Zurawski simply because we saw her more often.

 

But I didn’t get to know…

Dealing with Guilt

Maybe you feel like something you did or some neglect on your part caused your loved one's death. Guilt, whether real or imagined, is a normal reaction to grief which can be helpful in itself.  Talking about how guilty you feel can provide a much needed release.  No matter how much we love a person we cannot prevent time and unforeseen occurrences from befalling ourselves or those we love.  Not getting one to a…

Finding joy without mom

My mom and I were extremely close and talked about everything. But we never discussed how I was going to live my life without her. This became abundantly clear in the weeks and months that followed her death; confident and sure-footed me was completely lost.

 

I couldn’t have imagined all those years ago that I would find joy without her, but I have. She wouldn’t have wanted her death to sap the pleasure from my days and thankfully, it hasn’t.

 

The mourning…

Accepting Help from Others

Accepting help from others can be particularly important when a spouse has died.  The tasks that they once completed may now be left unattended.  For instance, if they handled financial matters or chores around the house it may be difficult to handle all by yourself.  In such a case the advice of tactful friends can be of great assistance to you. The Bible describes at Proverbs 17:17 a true friend is one "born when there is distress."  So do not isolate…

The death of my sister...

My little sister was murdered April 18, 1991 by a guy we went to school with. I was the one who found her. It was the most horrifying site I had ever seen. I was 16 she was 15. We played doubles tennis together. It was a awful mistake that she was home that day, it really should have been me. One day a week we practiced individually per the coaches request and that week we switched days. I had a date, a secrete date so we switched days so I could go out. Greg thought it would be me home that… Continue

Raymond Fievet Guest Book Entry

By Gail Woyton to Raymond Fievet:

 How to begin to tell my feelings for you, the man who not only entered my world many years ago, but also my heart, mind and soul? We know it's not "until death do us part" but forever! Your hard-fought war against the panic attacks that robbed us of our dreams while you were here on earth is over, but it can never reach our love. And now you walk, hand-in-hand, with our precious son. Please hug and kiss him for me and never…
