Missing My Mom!! Does It Ever Get Easier?

Posted on

Today my mom would have been 76 years old…it has been over three years since she passed away and yet not a day goes by that I don’t miss her.  Today is especially hard.  I still find myself seeing something she would like and have even found myself going up to the checkout with that item in hand planning to buy it for her and then I remember she is gone.  I see her everyday when I look in the mirror, and when I see my beautiful daughters.  I hear myself saying things that she said to me and it makes me smile and sad at the same time.  She gave me so many things..the love of reading, the love of cooking for people, the love of gardening, the joy of thrifting and sewing, the need to be kind to people and so many other things that help make me who I am.  She is that little voice in my head that tells me what to do.  She loved her granddaughters so much that it makes me sad that she won’t be around to see them as adults living their own lives.  I know she would be proud of them no matter what.image image image image image image image image

I wish she was here so I could tell her all the things I wish I had said or to share with her my life and just day to day things.  I wish she was here to ask for advice or just to hear her voice once again.  I miss her hugs, the way she smelt and just knowing she is around if I need her.

Does that feeling ever go away?  Does it ever really sink in that she is really gone?  Have you lost a parent or a loved one and how do you deal with the loss?  I would love some advice because today is a teary sad day for me.  Take care, Michele

    Hi Michele, I know how you feel, I lost my brother and mum within 4 weeks of each other 4 years ago, I miss them both more as time goes on but know that whilst ever they and my dad are in my heart and mind they are never truly gone. I wish I could give you comfort and tell you that it gets better but we all grieve in our own way. I don’t think it hurts to occasionally feel sad and shed a tear for those who no longer are here, especially on those special days we can no longer celebrate with them. Sending you love and hugs lovely lady xxx
