Theresa, I am so happy that you are finding peace. There are some things that we probably worry about too much. Our mom's certainly know that we love them, and there is no doubt that they are in peace.

I still need to tell my mom that I love her. I tell her all the time. That is more for me than her. She knows. 

Those questions will be answered one day. We all have to soldier through until then. God Bless you my friend. You deserve peace. We all do.

Yesterday I went to the cemetery and tried not to cry, but I couldn't hold it in.  I said to my mom you left so fast I didn't get to tell you how much I loved you.  I light a candle everynight next to her picture and tell her how much I love and miss her and I tell her I hope she knows it. 

I know my faith has gotten me through so far, I truly believe that God has prepared something so beautiful for us and that she is in peace.  I guess one day all of my questions will be answered.

God Bless you, Janie. I think it's wonderful that you have this feeling. I wish that for everyone here. I do not know the backstory for every person on this board. We all have different feelings and different circumstances. I think a psychiatrist would have a field day with me.

Good evening everyone! I took a break and went to the beautiful Colorado mountain s for five days to see my childhood friend. The trip was wonderful and I saw the most beautiful shooting star with a fireball I was sure that was a sign from my mama that she was okay and happy! I so needed to get away ! I have so much more to do concerning my mama selling the house and getting everything done financially. I am stronger now and I hope I will stay that way . I know my Mama would not want me to do anything but be strong. I have never loved anyone like I loved my sweet Mama! Stay strong everyone and think what your Mama would like you to do and be for her!! Have a great weekend.

Theresa, that makes me worry about the third year. I don't see how it could be worse though. I think that I may have started out having more endurance. Now I am so tired. Tired but so anxious. But more than anything, no matter how the psychiatry works, I just really miss my mom. It's not just missing. "Missing" is not strong enough of a word. It's the separation that is killing me.

I want to say this again. It means a lot to me to be able to talk about how much I grieve my mom's passing. I can get caught up in myself, but I know that I am not the only person who is grieving here. Everyone who is on this site is here because they have lost someone so dear to them, maybe even the greatest love of their life. I am with you. I pray for you and I know that you are also hurting badly. I pray for each of you by name. What's left of my heart is with you all. May God Bless You.

Brett someone told me the second year is harder than the first, I found it to be true because the first year I walked around in a fog, the second year reality hit.

Comment by Brett Bowman on August 8, 2017 at 10:13am

I do not know how to not focus on it. A year and a half later and I am much worse than I was. That is scary.

Comment by Theresa on August 8, 2017 at 8:58am

Bluebell it is overwhelming, I try to not focus so much on it, because we have to continue on unfortunately.


Comment by BLUEBELL on August 8, 2017 at 8:51am

I agree. The anxiety is hard to deal with. I have to remind myself that it has a beginning and an end because when I am in it, it is overwhelming.


Comment by Brett Bowman on August 7, 2017 at 8:09pm

Theresa, maybe it I not possible, but what is very real is how much they loved us. It's only natural to want a sign or a connection from someone that you love so much? We just can't turn love off like a water faucet. I'm not sure that I would if I could. I may turn it off when I need some sleep or when the anxiousness is more than I can stand. It seems that I can tolerate depression better than I can anxiety. It actually makes me feel a little better to cry. I have not found a way to cope with the anxiety of my loss.

We lost our moms just days apart from each other.

Holidays Again

It is that time of year again that we all wish we could sleep through. It has been 5 years without my Husband I was always told things get better with time. Each year that goes by it is worse. Just trying to survive through Christmas is sheer torture. Things will never be the same again.See More
