Sue, if we can ever answer any questions that you may have about what you are experiencing, please let us know. Everyone's story is different, but the feeling of loss that we all have is familiar. This is a group of people who understand.

Avi, it's amazing how the Lord took care of both you and your dad. As happy as I am for you, I think I may be even more happy for your dad. This gives him a reason to get up in the morning, and gives him someone to focus that lost love on.

You personally are experiencing the true joy of the circle of life. You will always miss your mom, but remember what I always say... find something to focus on. Find the one thing that gives you purpose and a reason to go on. You have found it in a wonderful place. Your little girl is a part of your mom (literally). People live on through their children and grandchildren.

God Bless You.

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.

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.

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.
