Time

Things were going well.  I was moving forward and coping very well.  At least once a day I heard "She's doing OK, she's strong like her Mother".  And I was 

I was functioning and taking care of business.  I was back to work and thinking ahead.  I thought I had things in control.

I was wrong.

This afternoon, for no particular reason, without any significant trigger - I felt a large hole consume my heart. 

No comments necessary.  I will be back when I feel more bloggy.

  3. Hi, Kim, it takes time to heal...lots of time. I lost my husband to cancer 4 years ago, he was only 59, and it took at least 6 months to even feel like I could function at all. Another year before I could look back and think of him without falling to pieces. Take all the time you need to grieve, and don't let other people (who mean well) tell you its time to get over it, because it's not.

  4. My experience is that it comes in waves out of the blue. Let it wash over you because if you fight it, it will last longer. You will be strong in your own time. Take whatever time you need.

  11. May The Lord Bless You and keep you, may. His face shine upon you and give you peace. I have just lost two sisters in the past four months so my heart breaks for you. Tomorrow will be forty one years since I lost my mother as a teenager you will learn to cope but you will always miss her. It is still so recent for you ,the hurt and loss is deep ,my prayers are for you.

  17. Oh my, I wish I could give you a big hug.It takes a long time to be able to function the way the world thinks is proper.My dad has been gone almost 6 years and I still have those moments.Grieve at your own rate and don't let anyone tell you differently.Your mom was a big part of your world and in your life a long time,so you won't be able to stop hurting in a few weeks.My thoughts and prayers are with you.Hugs,Jen

  18. Kim, thinking about you! I still miss my Mom more than I can say and she has been gone since 1987. I think about her every single day several times a day. Take care of yourself. Hugs.

  19. That's going to happen. How could you not miss her terribly? Just give yourself time and don't worry if you lose it every now and again. Best thing is to stay busy, and let yourself cry when you need to. Take comfort in those who love and care about you. Stay creative. Hugs to you.

  20. Dear Kim, yes it will happen quite often. You think you are doing okay and then that wave of sadness sweeps into you body and breaks your heart. It will come when you least expect it. After losing my mom this past November, I can relate so closing to what you are going through. Stay connected to your close friends and family and you will be fine. Sending you a hug. Although when anyone would hug me after my mom died, I would always become overwhelmed with emotion. So I am sending off a virtual hug and hoping you know you are not alone..

  22. I break down just at the thoughts of loosing my mom. She has COPD and is so skinny. She won't leave her house among other things. I imagine that I will go into a depressive state because I did that when Granny passed away a year and a half ago. It is still hard on me at times. My best advice would be to take it one day at a time. I pray that the Lord will give you peace in your heart that you need.

    Hugs,
    Angela
