GRIEF: Just When I Think I Am OK....
Just when I think I am doing ok and accepting the reality of my life without my mom, grief hits hard and I am in tears and heart broken missing her.
My 87 year old father is doing ok, but seeing him as their home alone tonight was almost more than I could bear.
It is true what everyone says ... grief comes in waves... some days we are ok, some days we are not.
Having faith in God is certainly the biggest comfort I have at this time of loss, but it is still a loss. I am still in pain. My kids are still in pain. My dad is still in pain.
My youngest turns 8 years old in a few days. We are all preparing for a birthday, but so sad to think of that celebration without my mom. Without their nana.
What about Mother's Day? How will that day be? New traditions are important, however my heart breaks for the old traditions. My heart breaks for the "normal" we once knew.
God help us in our grief, send your comforter.
