I wasn't ready
My mom passed away on January 7th 2014. It's been almost 5 months and it feels strange to me that I still can't believe it's real. I am her only child and we were like best friends. It's so nice to know there's one person on this earth that will love you and support you and encourage you no matter what. I had that for my whole life and now that's gone. That's such an empty feeling. I should mention that I'm 48 years old and probably should be thinking more adult like. I feel so bad for young children that lose a mother or mothers who lose a child. This pain is so overwhelming sometimes, I can't imagine being in their shoes. My dad chose to have my mom cremated and I do have some of her ashes but sometimes I wish there was someplace I could go and talk to her and feel like she's there. Does anyone have any suggestions?
