It is 3 days away from the 8th anniversary of my mom's death (February 10). I think this year the day will be better. I still allow myself one day to lock myself in the bathroom read notes, look at pictures and cards and cry until my head hurts....but I think the greif has subsided enough to start to rejoice in the memories I have of her and laugh more than cry! I still dread February though brings back a lot of bad memories also.
I think this next summer I am going to take my kids for the first time to visit her graveside unfortunately we moved and now live out of state (from where she was burried).
How does everyone else involve their kids' in remembering their parents? My son is two and didn't ever meet her but we talk about her a lot and show him pictures. Just curious how you keep the memories alive?
