i lost my mum in june she had been ill for a few months and had been failing and then suddenly one day everything changed , she had a stroke and after 9 days in hospital she died . leaving me feeling very lost and alone . i have blamed myself for not paying more attention to her and taking notice of what was happening , i realise now even though it is hard for me it would have been horrendous if mum had lived as she was , after the stroke , i have taken it as a positive mum had 73 happy years she had two children a happy marriage , 5 wonderful grandchildren and 3 great granchildren , who she enjoyed and loved and although i miss her more than i can say . i appreciate the time we had with her . the illness she had she had had all her life and had lived a good life until the last 18 mths . we were blessed to have such a wonderful mother and are so blessed for what she did for us and what she has left in her wake , i hope these words will help someone else as it has taken me time and thought to get where i am now but i will always miss mum but she would not want me not to live my life until we met again in the room beyond xx

Missing a loved one
by: M Mack


In the grand scheme of life on earth, it's short. That is why it's so important to live life to it's fullest. It sounds like your mom was fortunate to have a wonderful family and experienced love and joy with her family. She wouldnt want to be here in that condition so her time was up. Don't let yourself suffer guilt or blame. She only really needed your love and understanding, not your medical advice. When it's our time to go, there is nothing anyone can do to change it. My best to you as you should now reflect on her as she was. She is at home, in peace. God Bless and know there is an eternity.
