I am taking it all one tiny step at a time

I new to the website. I came upon this when I decided to look up my Dad's obituary. My father died expectingly on March 26,2010 of an aneurysm in abdomen. My mother died on my birthday June 7, 2008 after a 40 month battle with colon cancer. I miss them both very very much. Today was a rough day for me. I dreamed about the both of them last night. I dream about them often. I feel so alone in this world w/o my parents. Sure, I have my own family, but it just feels so empty w/o my parents. My sister and I haven't spoken in nearly a month and my brother and I haven't spoken in a couple of weeks. It is like the whole family fell apart after they died. Well, I am sure that I have said a whole lot of nothing, but I feel better now.

Judi,

The Holidays are never the same. They are different after you parent dies! One thing that I remind myself of is that they are so lucky to spend it with Jesus in heaven. For me, I try to recreate the holidays, so that they honor my parents, but get me through the day. Try making making a small dinner for your husband and then go to the movies or for a Christmas day walk. It is hard I know! The holidays always seem to trigger a depression or just my mood a little bit, but I try to do what I have to do to get through the day.

I am so sorry for your loss I just lost my mother on June 20th and I know just how you feel. I feel the same way, my mother was my life. My holidays were my mother my husband and myself. Although I have a sister and nieces I have never spent the holidays at their place. It is like I lost my family. I have not children so I feel alone. They have their families and I have none. I am not looking forward to the coming holidays at all. I have been more that curtious and invited my sister but her husband is the one that doesn't want to come. She has her children so she has a place to go anyway. It is going to be a terrible holiday season for me.

I am so very sorry for the loss of your parents. My father died unexpectantly as well in 1990 and my mother just passed in 2008. The only suggestion I would make is that maybe you need to reconnecting with your siblings. Even if you have to continue to make the effort first and continue to make the phone calls, invites, etc. Just a suggestion. I hope this helps.
