Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry, Olive! I hate that you're having to get through this day alone. You should absolutely talk about your dad. You're a whole person, not split in half with two separate losses. I wish we could sit and share a cup of tea together. When I'm alone and upset I rely on my art work or 'comfort' movies or books. Something I know and love that is soothing to me or lifts my spirits. For a long time I also relied on chocolate and ice cream, but don't do that, because I'm still working to lose the weight from it. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I wish I could do more.

Hi Nancy,  I wish we could go out to eat tonight in honor of my mom, but my husband works nights and my dear dad passed on February 4 (I didn't know if I should mention that in here because the group is about moms).  Your experience sounds beautiful; thank you so much for sharing it.  Maybe next year we will do that.

Hi, Olive. I am certain she feels your love! I am always praying and asking The Lord to tell my mom how much I love and miss her, and even to give her a hug and kiss from me. You can be sure he will pass everything on to your sweet mother. On my mom's birthday we took my dad out for dinner. We brought a couple of framed photos of my mom to set on the table and had a celebration of her life. My husband thought it was a terrible idea for me from a psychological standpoint, but it ended up being incredibly healing. Honestly, it felt like my mom was there. We remembered all the wonderful things about her, laughed at the cute things she used to do, and the waitress (who was incredibly compassionate) even gave us a free birthday dessert. It was a true celebration and not the tear-fest my husband predicted. I would recommend it to everyone. I think our moms would be proud and touched to see us gathered in their honor and remembering them with love.

Nancy, I am okay right now which I am grateful for.

Olive, My thoughts are with you on this difficult day.

Theresa, Talking does help and I thank you for your support. I am feeling my way through it minute by minute, hour by hour and day by day.

Hi Nancy, Theresa, and Bluebell,

Please know you are all in my prayers.  Today would have been my sweet mom's 75th birthday, so it is a very hard day.  I know she is rejoicing in heaven, but I can't help but be selfish and wish she were here with me.  I miss her so much.  I hope she feels my love.  Peace and love to all of you today.

How are you feeling today, Bluebell? I'm around if you need a shoulder.
Comment by BLUEBELL yesterday

Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life's search for love and wisdom.

Quote from Rumi

Comment by Theresa yesterday

Bluebell, I am so sorry I know exactly how you feel.

Thank you Nancy for your caring words. Hugs back to you. The intense sadness has eased up for now.

I'm so sorry, Bluebell. I know I can't ease your grief, but just want you to know you are not alone tonight. I am sending hugs across the miles.

The "How Are You?" Question

One of my friends (who hasn't contacted me for weeks) sent me a cutesy picture of a cat and a message which asked "how are you?". Cat picture aside, I am tired of this question, particularly when I feel the person asking it just wants to hear I am feeling better. As if that is possible for me five months after my husband's suicide. After I lost the love of my life, my joy and my happiness.I don't know how to answer the how are you question anymore, but I will be damned if I'm going to put on a…See More
