It's been a week since my mother passed away. I can't stand life without her. She was so much more than the woman that gave me life. She was my best friend, my kindred spirit. My mind will not accept that she's gone. She was such a genuine person. She loved me unconditionally. She was never judgemental. She welcomed strangers with open arms. She listened. She forgave and gave unlimited chances to those who made mistakes, even when everyone else did not. My anger seems to be the worst effect of her death. I am rude and distant to those trying to console me. Nothing comforts me.

Sally, my mother passed away a week ago today also. Reading your post feels like I could have written the very same words. Mom was everything and more. I think we each find comfort in different ways.... mine has come from going through and printing photos of my mother that I took over the last 6 weeks. In doing so, I saw all the different facets of mom and it made her feel closer. I also have found that without realizing it, I am never still, I am constantly doing something, anything. I miss her so much and will for the rest of my life.

I hope and will pray that you find what it is that comforts you, when you do, you'll know it.

God Bless...
