I know that sadness well, Theresa. We will always be our mother's child. She will always be our mom. 

It's been too long since we got to hug our moms. Way too long. And neither you nor I know when that will change. That's the kicker in all of this. The finality of it all is overwhelming. I know that I may see my mom again but it will not be in this life. That is a hard pill to swallow. So far I have not been able to swallow it. It's been over a year and a half and I still can't swallow it. If anything it seems like that pill just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

I wish every single one of you peace. I hope the day comes for all of us that we no longer need to post here. That day may come sooner for some and later for others. The speed in which we heal is not a measure of who loved their mother's more. We all love our moms. 

I guess circumstances have something to do with it. I'm just not ready to face life without my mom. I don't know if I can. I know that I have to though. I don't have any say in the matter.

For me life (now) is like sitting in the waiting room at the doctor's office. It seems like I have been waiting for a long time, and I know that there is probably a lot more waiting ahead.

Until then I will just keep telling my mom that I love her, and I will always hope that she can hear me.

Bluebell I feel sad everyday still. Somedays are tolerable but there is a deep sadness in my heart it's hard to explain. I miss her so much. Sometimes when I go over things in my head I feel so many different things. Like gosh it's been so long since Ive seen my mom or I will say I will not see my mom again until it is my time to leave this world

I look forward to being able to feel something other than sadness about my Mom's death. But I am not there yet. I do love you Mom and miss you every day.

I hope everybody has a loving good weekend and let's celebrate our Mom's for giving us life. I love you Mama!!

My mom loved Judge Judy. You couldn't convince her that was not a real courtroom. She also loved The Shark Tank and Everybody Loves Raymond. It all seems like just yesterday since we watched those shows together. I love those shows, too, but it was being with my mom that made it special. I never realized how true that was until I lost her.

Today was a good day! I love you and thank you so very much Mama! I think of you everyday while cleaning up your home and getting it ready for sale. It is still hard for me to go there and not seeing you watching Dr.Phil and judge Judy! I have not tackled your bear and clown room yet.i feel your presence there strongly and I cry. Here's to you Mama I love you so very much!!

Bluebell, like you, it's my dogs that keep me going. My two little girls were both my moms and mine. They were right by my side all of those years that I was mom's caretaker. They gave equal love  to both of us. I couldn't have made it through this without them. They have my heart.

My mom couldn't have know when she brought these little dogs home that they would one day be my lifeline.

There is a reason why people have therapy dogs. I have two. Not because I can't see or walk very well. It's because my spirit is broken. I don't know if they are aware of that. Maybe not. They give unconditional love one way or the other, just like my mom did.

Thank God for them.
