My Mom and my girls - July 2013

My Mom died on September 9th, 2013.

I was expecting it.

But then again, I wasn't.

Not like that...

::

Since she's died, I've written... and I've shared my thoughts on this wretched experience. I've been moved by the support, the love and the solidarity. Absolutely encompassed in love.

This is a club that I pray that none of you are already members of. But if you are, I'm sorry. From the bottom of my heart.

Read more about my story here, dear friends. And please, tell me about yours. You can always email me.

It starts on September 9th, 2013.

  1. my husband unexpectedly lost his mother to a rare blood disease almost two years ago. she was only 49 years old at the time. my heart goes out to you and your family. i know the hurt is still fresh in your mind. i wish i had some words of encouragement to offer you. it still hurts when i think about how my two boys won't remember her. i hope that your memories will help you find some comfort.

    1. Oh... I am so sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. What a tragedy. It really is. And I know you've heard it before, but 49. Be still my heart.

      Thank you for your kind words. I hope that you, your husband and your boys are well. I'm sure your boys will know your husband's Mom through him. Through the memories. They're what keep us going. They're part of who we are, aren't they?
