6 Months Today


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Hope everyone is hanging in there. Its been rough around here lately. Mom has been having such a hard time. Between Thanksgiving, what should've been their 40th wedding anniversary and Christmas she is like a lost puppy. She is trying hard but I think its worse now than it was when my dad first died. My son and I went over the other day and helped her put up some Christmas decorations. We put up a small tree and put NY Giant ornaments all over it. My dad would've loved it.

My son must be thinking of him alot lately because he has been watching the New York Giants superbowl win from last year and running around with my dad's Giant hat on. (Before we closed the casket it was the only thing he asked to have of my dad's).

In some ways I can't believe its already been 6 months and in other ways it feels like a lifetime. I've convinced my mom to come here Christmas Eve and sleep over and enjoy Christmas day with the kids and then the day after we will meet up with the rest of the family in NY to celebrate Christmas up there and go to the cemetery together. Thank God for my children. If it weren't for them this would be so much harder.

I hope you all get through Christmas ok. I'll be thinking of everyone.

Hi Tammy. Thanks for posting. Your xmas plans sound just perfect for your mom. And you are right, having kids around while dealing with lc or a lost loved one certainly does help. Best wishes to you and your family this holiday season and may it contain beautiful memories of your dad.

Tammy, My heart goes out to you and your family at this difficult time. But your plans for your mom and your family are great. She's lucky to have you. And it must warm your heart and break your heart at the same time to see your son running around with his grandfathers hat on.

Peace to you this holiday season, Judy in Key West
