I’m mourning the death of my Mom. She passed away on her birthday quite a few months ago.
I’ve been keeping a journal from the time before her death and every day since then. Rough notes of what was happening as she was dying and my feelings of grief so hard to express out loud then and now. Writing things down has always been easier for me than saying them. But now I have come to a point when I very much need to express my feelings of grief and loss in a more open way.
I would like to share with you how I felt, how I feel, and perhaps our conversations together will comfort us and help us in time to move beyond the overwhelming sadness to a new place where we will be able to feel joyful about what our loved one has left with us – the memories, the love.
I am sure that I am not alone as I struggle to find a way to get through and beyond the pain and grief, but despite a lot of searching through web-sites and blogs, books and journal articles, I have not been able to find someone to share this journey with.
I am hoping that this blog will connect us. I will try to write every few days. I hope you will find this meaningful and helpful and that you will let me know and that we can share our thoughts and feelings and comfort each other.
I would like to share this with you.
I am certain I am not alone.
