LoriW Posted May 30, 2006 Report Share Posted May 30, 2006 My Mom died 6 months ago today. In the past 6 months I have felt a sadness I have never known before in my life. I have been through Christmas, New Years, my birthday, Easter and Mother's Day for the first time without my Mom. I have thoughts of her at least a dozen times each and every day, but there are more smiles now than tears. I have had to be there for my Dad and in a way I grieve for him too. I have taken with me all of my Mom's valuable lessons she taught me along the way and I feel more grown up since November 30th. In the next 6 months I have more mountains to climb...her birthday in July, my parent's anniversary in September, Thanksgiving in November and the 1 year mark of her death on November 30th.I guess I am just reflecting and I am feeling okay. I miss my Mom so much but I cherish each special memory that comes to mind out of the blue and relive time spent together in my mind or with my daughters. 6 months....such a short time ago and yet it feels like I haven't seen her for forever.
