One year ago today


Recommended Posts

Well, a year has come and gone. I still find it hard to believe. I miss my Mom so much, but life has to go on. It is in the quiet moments that I feel the most grief (and Mothers day). My Dad had a real hard time of it today. This morning we went to the cemetary to bring flowers. This happens to be my husband's birthday as well, so I only allowed myself the morning to be sad, had to "Cheer up " for the rest of the day. It was only fair to him, last year his birthday was non-existant. I have finally added (With Rick's help!) a post to the wall of memory. I'd love for you all to visit it.

Thanks for being there,

Hi Faylene,

Mother's Day is the hard for me, too. My mom's been gone 5+ years, but Mother's Day always brings some tears. I, too, snap out of it pretty quickly for the rest of the family and just won't let myself become overwhelmed with sadness. I'm glad you were able to cheer up for your husband. I'm also glad to see you still stay in touch with all of us after losing your mom. I've noticed your posts many times encouraging others.

God bless you,

Thanks to all of you for being there. For those of you following behind me on this journey, it does get easier. Four days before my Mom's anniversary, it was the 25th anniversary of my brother's death. I remember the extreme grief I felt back then, but can honestly say, most times now I remember the good times, I'm sure it will be the same someday for us remembering our newly lost loved ones. Keep the faith and keep journeying.

I am so sorry for your loss and your grief. I just want to tell you that every time I see that picture of your Mom on your postings, she looks just like an Angel to me (and I'm sure she is). It actually looks like she has wings in the photo. I just wanted to share with you what I see every time I see your beloved Mother.

I apologise for not responding to you when you wrote this. I don't know I missed it, but I did.

You're one of the kindest people I've met on this journey. And you have encouraged me so many times I've lost count. Thank you. I hope that in the weeks since you wrote this things become easier still.
