It's a rainy Saturday morning, in my PJs and sitting with here coffee, reading these stories. Tomorrow will be one year since I lost my best friend, my beautiful mother. I am so grateful to God and my friend Lemay for this website because I only joined a few days ago and have been battling the emotional rollercoaster that we have all experienced regarding the loss of our parent/s.
My story is similar to many; I'm in my 40s, elder parents, and had to deal with the devil himself. CANCER. My world has forever changed since losing my mother and my life will never feel the same, particulary as a woman needing that nuturing that only mom can give. There are so many times we need our mothers and when they are no longer here to be our rock, it hurts beyond belief. This is a hurdle that I have the hardest time jumpimg over and I don't know that I ever will.
As my day progresses toward tomorrow, I feel alot of anxiety. My dad, two children and I will spend the day at church and head to the cemetary with much sadness. As a grieving community of moms, I ask for your thoughts and prayers. I too, while I sit in church, will pray for all of us here.
I know I have to keep on keeping on, and that I will do. It is my hope that everyone here can find the strength to do so as well. God bless you all ~
