I understand what you mean Marsha, even though we know our parents are in Heaven - we can not see 'em or touch 'em. Just like pain - if the Doctor can not see your headache or feel your headache to them it is not real.... that is what I mean no one really seems to get the degree of my internal anguish it is a constant unhappiness that no matter what I do or where I go it does not leave it is my loss the loss is a forever feeling. No medicine, no therapy and not time has helped ! It is a coping skill I have learned to develop to sheild the pain to force myself thru each day in hopes that tomorrow it will not hurt as badly. I pray for a sign from my Mom something to let me know she wants to be in Heaven ... like a ladybug if I could see one daily I would know it was here. She loved lady bugs
I just had to extend a warm and heart felt hug to you.
And to let you know that As the days go by and the little moments that we all get in the day, while we are going about our daily life suddenly pop into our head and we just stop and remember that time we did this together or that or did something special. These are the memorys that help get us by in our daily routine and I find myself doing this often when I wish they were here. Sometimes it brings a proud feeling all over and other times You feel that why has it happened and a tear is shed.
