Updated on February 22, 2013

In the last two years I have grocery shopped for my elderly parents.

The grocery shopping became my chore when both my parents had disabling illnesses due to aging; as well I live with them, so for me to do the grocery shopping was one of the natural changes of events under the circumstances.

Today was the first time since my Dads passing I had to do the grocery shopping.

I was dreading it more than usual.

I had to hold back tears at many instances, because every time I turned around there was something I normally would had bought for my Father.

I just thought I would express that little mourning tid bit to you my friends, as away to heal.

I suppose for the most part I am doing ok.

I imagine that grieving comes in all different forms, and the lack of my Fathers presence will continue to surprise me as a loss for a long while; it is just that this grocery shopping trip struck me as a biggy.

Dear Friends~

Thank you all for being there for me during my time of loss and grieving. All your condolences have warmed and mended my heart in the last few weeks.

Friends always make a difference in getting through tuff times and the restoring of health whether it be physical or emotional health. You my loving friends have shown so much kindness that it almost leaves me speechless. ((((THANK YOU BIG TIME!)))))

Blessings to All and Pure Loving Hugs,



I wish there was a way to put all my net friends condolences on here too. My Facebook and HUB friends have also given me overwhelming support.


Love you Dad and Miss you more than you could ever imagine.

      Sorry to hear about your loss, the little things all around us always remind of us of what we had.

      I believe that the spirit lives on and our family will always be watching over us.

      I think the bonds of love and happy memories can never be lost and keep them held close to us.

      Take care. Anna.

      I am so sorry for your loss, Lisa. my family has suffered more than one loss in the last year, the last being my mother-in-law. I relate to going about simple tasks and having moments that remind me of the littlest things. We have shed far too many tears of's going to take a lot of laughter to change the balance. Sending a big hug from my way!

      Oh this is so very sad and I can so relate to what you are going through. It is so, so sad to lose a parent, particularly if you were so very close and were looking after them exclusively. Nothing anyone can say will help, although to know that each and everyone here on HubPages sends their love to you at this very difficult time I hope will help a little. Time will eventually heal, but just remember your parents will be with you in spirit... always.

      Wonderful hub and such appropriate and beautiful pictures too. I am voting up and pressing your buttons too. Take care special lady. Love Acaetnna xx
