Guys my little girl has moved on with me now after spending 8 months at her maternal grand mother's place. Now me, my wife and my father lives together. My father who was alone after my mother's death has a new hope and motivation to live now as his grand daughter keeps him busy all day. 

I also have a meaning to life because when her tiny hands touches me I feel on heaven. I was extremely demotivated because of guilt but now I have a reason to live. 

Sue, as you lost your mother recently I wish comfort for you.

Brett, I am so sorry.  I hope things are better for you & thank you for your message.  I will keep you in my thoughts & prayers.  Take care & will be thinking of you,

Sue, I am so sorry. I know. Believe me, we know. And I wish that I could say something more.

Something horrible happened to me today. The worst possible thing that could have happened, beyond losing my dog. I'm not sick or anything, but my world came crashing down. I would say more, but I can't talk about it.

I'm asking for prayers.

This was my first holiday without my Mom.  She passed in March 2019.  Good Friday was rough.  I was looking forward to spending a long weekend with her.  Trying to stay busy, but I miss her so much.  Mornings are really bad & usually end up crying.

Thanks for thinking of me Avi — hope you’re doing well and enjoying your little girl.  This is the first Easter without my mother. Losing her has really changed things, it seems that she and I (and my husband) were the ones who cared about celebrating such occasions, the others not so much.  In the end I decided not to travel to my father’s home, since it is not that meaningful to the family there and it is hard on me ... and expensive flying to a different country, of course.  So I stayed home and had a quiet day, remembering Easter through the years with my mother and with my husband — it was good for me to think about them.  I put out my husband’s wooden Easter eggs and some other things that I associate with the day.  My mother gave me two vases which apparently were meant for just one flowering branch, so they are on the table as well.

Hi, Avi. Happy Easter to all. It's status quo for me.

Comment by Avi on April 18, 2019 at 11:46am

Hi All, 

Hows everybody doing? Theressa, Brett, Adams, Virginia?

Comment by Avi on April 5, 2019 at 12:57am

Hi All, 

Posting after long time. The days are passing by and life is back to normal but whenever I sit alone, I miss my mom. I miss the moments I spent with her and regret the moments which I may have spent with her. 

Have a nice day to all.

What you’ve said here, Brett, is so powerful.

-Tomorrow is not promised to anyone.

-We have to reinvent ourselves.

-I am with you.

Those three phrases sum up much of what I’ve been trying to take in recently by reading the philosopher Epictetus — acceptance of life’s fragility, the requirement to engage anew with the world, and the responsibility to be kind.  Glad that you are “plugging away” to such good effect, and that you are taking care of your health — thanks for this thoughtful posting.
