Hello all....

Just wanted to drop a note to say how much help you all have provided me by talking about the loss of our mums. Every note and comment in this forum shows us how much our mums mean to us.

I loss my mother just before Christmas last year and like everybody else, there are some days where the grief and pain are over whelming and I wonder how things could get better. There has not been a day since where I have not thought about mum, and telling her how much I love and miss her.

It is not easy getting on with life and by reading all your stories, it helps me understand that I am not the only one who is hurting out there. But I am pretty sure our mothers would want us to soldier on and make the most of our lives and it is this thought that I hold on to until the day I get to see her again in Heaven.

I will keep you all in my prayers and I know that it will a long road that we are all taking to overcome the loss of our Mums. Thank you everybody.....

My dearest mother passed away after a short battle with cancer at the age of 68. Everything we were told looked great until her 68th birthday on July 8th 2015. The cancer had spread and after one trial of chemo that was making her even more sick she was sent to palliative care where she passed on September 3rd 2015. There is so much more I could share, but I have to be prepared emotionally to revisit that most horrible and still very surreal experience. What I do find myself doing is trying to live the life my mother could not. Some would say it is positive, but it is also a great source of anxiety for me. I feel the rain more than I ever did before, I take extra deep breathes when there a smells of flowers in the air and then I become overwhelmed with my grief. Mom was always a next year person, only this time next year never came. I find myself trying to connect with what she must have felt when told these were her last days. She was terrified to go to sleep and I basically moved in with her to palliative care so she would never have to be alone. She always held my hand as if it was her anchor to the world. I have a huge hole in my heart. I was even hospitalized for 3 days following her death because my grief was so overwhelming. I am an only child and now my father lives with us because my mom was his primary care taker. I love my parents so much I fear what will happen to me when my father is gone. The rest of my family lives in Australia and the U.K. Thank you for allowing me to share a bit of my story and unburden my broken heart

I'm so sorry your heart is so sad, Jean.  But I completely understand, too.  My grief comes and goes and grieving for my mother was interrupted exactly one month after she died because my husband unexpectedly passed away.  Now I have no one to talk to.  I, too, feel very, very alone.

Charlie, My mother left me in charge of everything 3 years 3 months and one week ago today. I know exactly what she was dealing with and now I am doing my best to do what I can as best that I can everyday. I am missing her guidance and calmness to get me through the really tough spots and there have been many. More to come. sigh. Feeling sad and so very alone without her everyday. Jean

I just passed one year for my mother's death.  Tomorrow will actually be one year since she was buried.  I've been learning things about my mother since she died.  About things she had to deal with.  Things that she did and never said a word.  I'm actually starting to understand her better...and her pain and why she seemed to lose the will to fight, I think.  It makes me feel a little closer to her.  Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks for responding, Theresa and Lisa. Most people I mention this to think it's just a coincidence, but it happens all the time and never did before.
Comment by Theresa on July 12, 2016 at 6:36pm

I agree mine is the number 5, my dad died on 12/14, my mom on 12/19 and my grandmother on 12/24, 5 days in between each, the number 555 keeps showing up at different times oddly enough

Comment by Lisa Green on July 12, 2016 at 8:03am

Nancy,

i don't think that is so crazy. I think my mom is doing the same thing to me with hearts. Mom has been gone since Feb. 24th this year and a few months ago, I noticed there was a heart shaped light shining on my hallway floor. I looked around everywhere for a window or light that might be causing it but there was nothing. It was coming from a candle warmer that I have plugged in my hallway but the warmer ONLY has holes in it that would shine circle lights on the floor if anything but it was a heart and its still there. Its been there all this time. I never noticed it before then. A few days ago, my sister sent me a picture of a heart shaped light on her wall and again it was coming from her candle warmer but there were no heart shaped cut outs in her warmer either. Hers only has line shaped cut outs in it. I believe these things do happen from the spirits of our loved ones but often times they go unnoticed. Many people will miss the signs that are all around them. I also talk with God about giving my Mom hugs and I Love You's from me to her.

This is my second post today, and this one is going to sound a little crazy. I think my mom is trying to stay in touch with me through numbers. Let me start by saying this NEVER happened to me before my mom passed. Ever since she passed I keep seeing repetitive numbers on the clock, and I mean several times a day even if I wake in the middle of the night. I see the numbers 11:11. 12:12, 12:34 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, and 4:44 the most. I mentioned it to my son this week and sure enough the time on the oven clock was 12:34. It happened again when we looked at it the next day and that time he took a photo of it. I don't plan to look at the clock at certain times. It just keeps happening.

I agree with Gregory. We find ways to cope, but it will always be difficult not to have our moms in our daily life. It's been 16 months since my mom passed. I think about her every day. I pray each night for the Lord to give her hugs and kisses from me and tell her how much I love her. I am married to a wonderful man who I love spending time with. We are empty nesters but we spend as much time as we can with our grown children. I keep busy with friends and volunteer work. I have so much to be thankful for, (and I am thankful) but I still carry a sense of loss and emptiness where my mom should be.

A Visit!

Like everyone on this site, I have been going through hell since my wife passed away, April 29th, 2015.  The past few weeks it has gotten worse until last night.  It was the middle of the night and, as usual, I was making numerous trips to the bathroom. Then for what amounts to 2 or 3 seconds, I saw directly ahead of me, standing at the bedroom door a vision. She was vivid to my eye and stood stock still. She appeared to be wearing the same type of hospital gown that she passed in. She said…See More

Lessons in the Aftermath of Mom"s Death

It's been about 15 months since my mom died after battling colon cancer that metastasized and spread quickly.Mom's courage and faith were extraordinary. She seemed to provide us with some final lessons about life and people in the final months of her life.I miss her so much - her optimism, love of family and her persevering spirit.Since her death, my family and I have to deal with some difficult things with my stepfather. He remarried within 8 months of her death and tried to manipulate us into…See More
