Thanksgiving Without Mom!

This is the second Thanksgiving without my mother and I am not looking forward to it.  I just learned that my brother and his wife are having the family Thanksgiving dinner on Wednesday night since they are spending the actual Thanksgiving Day with her family.  My Dad decided to spend the holiday on a cruise with his girlfriend rather than with his children, which I am very upset about.  I think of Thanksgiving as a family holiday and I feel like my family is…

I miss my Mom!

Hi! I'm new to blogging.  I usually write in my journal, which helps me sort out my feelings.  But since I found this wonderful site, I decided this wasn't a bad idea.

I would like to say I'm glad to be here, but I'm not.  I guess none of us are, but we need each other to get through the bad times.

I'm her because I lost my dear mother a year and a half ago from Ovarian Cancer and I am still coming to terms with her death.  Part of the reason why is because her death was so…

Hey. I lost my mom to cancer in Jan of 2010, so almost 2 years ago and I hate the holidays as well despite the fact that I have 3 small children and have all the fun Santa stuff, I dread it ALL without my mom being here. My family is drifting apart as well and as you say...the holiday rituals seemed to have died with my mom. Its sad. My parents were divorced and we no longer talk to her husband and my Dad has a new girlfriend and is spending the holidays with her in Brazil. My brother made it his priority to spend the holidays  (even Christmas) with his wife's family so that leaves my sister and I. Its really sad and depressing. They say when you lose someone to take an 'inventory" of all you have lost that went along with that person...the joy of the holidays is definitely on that list for me! You are not alone in this grief nightmare from hell.

"You're welcome, too.  As for me -- same as it has been since my husband died. I don't expect it will ever change. I know what you mean about being over the shock, and I suppose it's usually/mostly that way for me as well, but…"

"The 4th of July is my husband's favorite holiday -- mostly because of all the cookouts/barbecues/food, but also because of the fireworks. So, as with so many other things since he died, I find that I can't celebrate it. There's simply…"
