Lost Soul

by Betty- Ann Knowles
(Winnipeg Manitoba)

I was blessed with the most wonderful loving kind hearted mother 61 years ago.The day I entered this world she bonded with me holding me close to her heart and soul. The love we shared that day lasted each and every day for 61 more years.My world is empty without her. Days are long and nights are sleepless. I miss our telephone calls each and every day. Oh how I miss her hugs sweet smile and tears of joy and laughter we shared together.There will be no more decorating the tree together, Thanksgiving suppers Mothers day to look forward to.. My Mother was the sun shining through the clouds.When Mom would enter a room filed with loved ones we would all feel like a Angel had entered the room.There was a glow my Mom had that touched everyone's heart.I will miss her giggles and warm smiling eyes . I am a lost soul without her. Shine on little Angel.

Dear Betty, your words touches me a lot. 15 months ago my mom died and I still miss her smiles, her shining eyes und her hugs too. Esspecilly today, because today is my birthday. She was always the first one, who came slowly early in the morning in my room and ask: " where is my Little birthday child?" I starting to cry now. Sorry. Even walking was not that easy for her, she came on my bed and gave me a big, big hug and a present. I miss it so much today. I can hardly tell. Oh Betty, I can understand so much all your words and feelings. It just hurts, and hurts and hurts. Like a neverending pain. I just can underline all you have written. We are lost souls in the rain/tears). The death our mothers was like our self were dying too. She was and is still a part of us. And this part is missing. Just try like I do, going one day after the other, step by step. Write all your memories in a book. My first book is real thick and I named it "I miss you Mom." My second book were I will write all my memories with her named "My Mom." It is helping me. And your book you gave already such a wonderful Name " Shine on little Angel". Maybe it will help you a little bit too. Betty, I wishes so much, I could write you something, which takes your pains all away. But where is much love will be much pain. It belongs together. Feel your self hugged from Germany. Jane

Betty Anne I am sorry for your loss of your Mom and how this loss is still affecting your daily life without her presence. When we lose our mother's we can feel very insecure for some time. All the day missing their presence with the memories that return of what life was like and how it as changed. The struggle is so very difficult to cope with at times.
I found the best way forward was TAKING ONE DAY AT A TIME. I still can only take one day at a time 2yrs. on. It took me 9yrs. to look at my mother's photo's. Losing my husband to cancer 2yrs. ago is a grief that is more difficult to bear and will take a whole lot longer to heal from. You will eventually heal from your loss of your mother. It just takes a whole lot of time from months to years. Grief does not last forever. Keep this Hope in your heart.
