A year


Recommended Posts

Have just gotten through the first anniversary of my Moms death (May5th) and my 2nd Mothers Day without her. This Mother’s Day was much harder as last year I was still numb from her passing 5 days before. I have survived the first year. There were times when I didn’t think I would.  I am in the final stages of planning her Celebration of Life on 5/22 and it has been a painful yet somehow healing process. It will be a party that she would’ve enjoyed immensely with family and close friends. Do I think it will bring closure? No. I believe there are losses that you never get over, you just get used to the new normal. My life has been changed forever but I know my Mom is watching over me as  I feel her presence often.

Sending a hug. 

I lost my own mom to metastatic breast cancer over 30 years ago and I still miss her. I do enjoy dreaming about her--sometimes I even dream about the silly fights we had when I was a teenager--it makes me feel like we just had a visit.

Your party sounds lovely--hope you and the rest of her family and friends can enjoy celebrating her.

Wow. It's been a year already? And sorry I am just now responding. Just saw your post?

Hope the celebration of life went well and maybe provided just a little more closure.

Thank you Tom. It doesn’t seem possible that it’s been over a year now since my mom left us. Sometimes it seems like it was yesterday other times it seems like forever. The Celebration of my Moms life was a wonderful evening. My mom would’ve loved the party. It brought me a sense of closure that I wasn’t expecting. It was the last thing I needed to do for her so although the book will never be closed, that chapter is finished.
