It's bad enough when I have people come up to me and say things like, "well this is the second Christmas without Brad, so it should be easier", stupid things, but when so many have said to me today at work, about my mom whom I just lost last week..."how old was she, then I reply 86, they say, oh well then she lived a long life". I know that, I don't care if she would have been 100, it still hurts to lose my mom! Don't these people think before they speak? At any rate, I'm going to have a lonely Christmas without Dad, Mom and Brad even though I have other family. I hope I can ignore these remarks from people and try to go on and get through the holidays. I wish you all some peace this holiday and better tomorrows.....Barb
Barb, unfortunately, I won't be able to spend one more Christmas with Mom. She passed away yesterday. Losing the two key people in my life just 8 wks apart is kinda hard to handle. I'm sure you know all the comments I am now receiving now. If I hear "It's gonna get better" one more time, I think I'll deck that person. I truly do understand your pain, Barb, cause now it's mine also. Please take care of yourself, give yourself a hug from me.
