“Hold dear to your parents for it is a scary and confusing world without them.” ~ Emily Dickinson


I am scared and confused already. 12 hours in. What will the rest of my days be like?

Oh, Heather. You've lost your mama -- you are a mama and will do what you do. I am so sorry and send all my love.

Oh Heather! I'm shocked and so very very sorry! I'll be keeping you and your family close in thought and prayer. For now, just take it an hour at a time, and when that's too hard, take things a minute at a time. You'll always miss your Mom - we aren't meant to be able to "get over" losing our parents. But you will find a way to go on. Eventually, the good memories will surface more and the pain will become bearable. Sending much love and sincere sympathy.

Im so so sorry to hear this, i can feel the pain and sadness tou must be feeling. Sending much love and hugs from afar. What Karen said above is so true, I don't think we are ever meant to get over losing a parent. I lost my mom exactly a year ago and the pain is still raw, I'm trying so hard to let go of the anger and sadness and try and dwell in the happy memories, I think they'll come when I'm ready. I miss her every single day and really no one can fill that void, its just too big. But.....I am carrying on somehow one day at a time, something I never thought I would be ale to do, I've always been a bit of a mummy's girl and here I am finding my way without her, I keep telling myself she wouldn't want to see me this sad. I thinks it helps to stay close to family at this time and feel their love surrounding you.

Oh Heather, it's times like this that I REALLY hate us being so far apart! I wish I were there to hug you, because I honestly have no words to say. My prayers are with your entire family!

I am so sorry Heather. Tears for you and your family, as I write. Having experienced this myself, do not judge anything by these first 12 hours. Please give my best to all of your siblings and uour dad. You had a strong mom who raized five great children and supported her husband and family. Sounds like she raised you to do the same. What a beautiful cycle of life.I am thinking of all of you.

You know I am so so sorry. Losing my Dad was the hardest thing ever, it's impossible for anyone to know what you are feeling. I just know what I felt. Call me whenever you need to, you know I am always here for you. Love from me, Addy and our little man.

Oh, Heather, so very sorry. Thinking of you and your family and hoping you can find some peace. What a great photo, above! I see so much of you in your mother, and if I had known her, I'm sure the resemblance would be even more remarkable. Hang on to those gifts! Sending my love.

Victoria Strong said...

I am so, so very sorry, Heather. Give yourself time to process all of this. Don't feel you have to hurry up in your grief. I still cry and miss my own mother. And I sure as heck still need her an awful lot. But now I also feel such gratitude when I think of all that I am because of her influence. And on those special days I feel her presence and hold that feeling close to my heart. Sending love and hugs and hopes for healing.

Lisa said...

So sorry Heather. Praying for you and your family.

Heather - I am just catching up with you and then I see this post. I am so sorry that you have this grief. Reading the next few posts, it sounds like you have so many good memories about your mom. Hold onto them. They will pop up at the most serendipitous times - and of course, will always bring tears of love.
