Merry Christmas to all here. I cried a lot yesterday as I was alone, tired and was able to remember my mother's pain in her last few days. 

Wishing peace to everyone.

Avi, I can't say that I envy any of us but you are so blessed. You lost your mom but the Lord gave you a beautiful little life to nurture, love, and foster.

Theresa, you are are in my prayers today. I know it was a very hard day.

SelV, I think I would spend a lot of says in bed if I could. A few nights ago I got up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. When I went back to bed I looked at the clock. I was happy because I still had a few hours before my alarm would go off. And then I thought how nice it would be to hibernate for a few months, that it would stay dark, and that I could just stay in bed. When I laid down I realized that wasn't a very healthy desire. But that's how I feel. I'm just tired spiritually more than physically. And I look ahead and I don't know where relief will come from. Maybe God has a plan for my life. I sure hope so.

Thanks Selv. Yes she died on 15 May 2018 so the memories are still fresh. My daughter is driving me in this life as she is innocent and does not know anything about grief and guilt. 

Great to hear that you help others.

Hello there Avi...

I hope your dad, wife and your baby girl are doing fine. Your mother passed on 15 May 2018, right? 15 was my favourite number. 15 was the date that my mother gave birth to me. 15 was also the date that she departed from this world. So every 15 of each month since she passed on, you can imagine the barometer of my sadness. Yesterday, was the 15 of December, and the whole day I was 'bedridden'. Simply couldn't get out of bed even though I was awake, to brush my teeth, take a shower, cook my meals etc. I just couldn't. I didn't eat anything and silence took over. I live alone so silence and tears are my constant companion now. Besides, I will only report to work in January. I used to travel during end of Nov/Dec period but I am just processing my grief and dealing with my mother's death every day now.

I like how you are contributing your services to the underprivileged. You are on the right path. I donated some money to one of the aged homes to commemorate Mother's Day this year by throwing a lunch to the poor old people abandoned by their children or terminally ill. 

Be there for your darling sweet little girl. Trust me as a favourite daughter to a father whom I lost 17 years ago, I still miss him terribly. I miss my mum just as bad.

Sorry should say sit with my mom.

I'm a bit nervous about the mass this morning, I just want this day over.

I figured I would go to the mass, stop at the small place where she used to go everyday for her friends and she was friends with with owners, and then I will go to the gravesite to make sure the arrangement I put down at Thanksgiving is still intact.
