It's been a little over a month and I miss my Mom. Her bill statements are being forwarded to me now and that is a bit difficult to deal with. I don't have time to shut down because the important bills have to be paid. Then too; I can't shut down in regards to dealing with my own lifes challenges and daily living. I'm doing a little more now at home. I did wash the clothes yesterday and cooked dinner. I folded the clothes, but have to put them up. I will try to do that tomorrow. *sigh* It's been rough, not only in dealing with the loss, but my own health challenges need to be addressed also. I feel the stress of losing my Mom has taken it's toll on my body. So, I try to get more rest than usual, drink more water and eat healthy foods. Only God will heal the pain. My husband has been very supportive. He even told me last night that he wishes he could take away my pain. I wish he could too but it doesn't work like that. I know God allows everything to happen for a reason, but it still hurts. I will trust God to heal my pain as I know he can.
