Remembering. With Love

I am trying to settle into a new type of normal. I no longer go to my Mothers' home everyday, she is in her Heavenly home, I am spending more time in my own home. After reading so many of your wonderful words of wisdom, I have decided to do at least a little fall decorating. So, I went to the basement and opened the first container and the tears started to roll. I found so many items that Mom had made or we made together. There are many things that she purchased for me and the sweater pumpkins that we made last year...Oh so many happy memories that made me cry even more. But it is better to have the tears as I remember than to let all the items be packed away for another year.
After crying through the first tub...I will save the other two for tomorrow but for today I am happy for all the great memories of the love she so freely passed to me and my family...that will linger a lifetime.
I will post a few pictures when I get started and after the tears I am hoping for a few warm smiles...good night dear friends.

I don't even know what to say after reading your blog about your mother. I don't know you but can feel your pain. Bless your heart and hers also. I send you a big hug and hope your days get better. As Teresa said we send prayers....

I feel for you, I lost my mom five years ago to breast cancer. She was 57 years young and it was too soon for me to leave my mom -- I was about 38 years old and still really needed her. We were friends, did everything together, didn't feel guilty about splitting banana split together...we were free and happy together. Then, the breast cancer came and our world changed. If only she were still at home and able to snwer the phone, I love her and miss her, but she's in her Heavenly Home. So, I feel for you. As time has passed, I've been able to remember all the good times we had together and I do little things to honor her, such as back strawberry cupcakes on her birthday or make chocolate covered strawberries...she was my inspiration. No one will ever love me and support me and KNOW me like my mother. So, enjoy the memories and we'll both give thanks that we were so darn blessed.

May your tears turn to joy knowing that the things your mother made will always be a piece of her.

Although I cannot say that I understand, because we each grieve differently...I can relate as I have had much loss in my life. It is okay to go slow, savor the memories. Right now, you need to grieve. You should grieve...don't let anyone rush you through it. There will come a day in the future, when you stop mourning her death and begin celebrating her life. You will know when that day is. There is joy again after the mourning. Mothers are special people, I'm so happy that you were blessed with your Mom.
