Missing her so much

It was 3 years ago today that my beautiful mom lost her battle with this horrible disease. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her and miss her so much. I am slowly adjusting to life without her but some days are just so much harder than others. I know she is with me in spirit but how I wish my mom before this disease was still here. I was so blessed to have her in my life for as long as I did.

Hi, Tink, I know exactly how you feel. It hit me hard one day last week and I got through the day somehow, but yes, there is that missing. I wish I could make it better somehow. If there is strength in numbers then here, a virtual standing by your side from me as well.

Tink, it is hard isn't it?  I tend to get down on Fridays as that was my standing date with my mom to go out for sushi and saki.  I have photos of mom and me together at each of the Japanese restaurants where we went together and I can still hear her voice saying "Isn't it great how we love the same things?  Some mothers and daughters are at war with each other, but not us."

It's been five months and I haven't gone back to any of these restaurants for fear of breaking down.  I see myself sitting at the table alone with the servers wondering where mom is.  Fridays are rough.  We get it.

Hey Tink, 

I know how tough it is being without your mom. It will be 2 years without mine coming in few weeks. Be gentle with yourself.

Hi Tink, I'm sending you lots of love and hugs.  I miss my momma every day too, she left me June 6th and I've been a shell of myself ever since.  I understand how you feel my friend.  Please reach out if you ever want to talk. xoxoxoxo

Count me in as present for strength in numbers. We are here and we all understand. 

Evenings, as the sun sets, is the hardest for me. Before my mom came to live in my house that was my cue to call her to check on her—every night without fail. She never much cared for  talking on the phone, but she liked that I called. 

Be gentle with yourself; be true to yourself. You will get to where you need to be in your own time. That’s something my mom would have said to me.
