Peanut butter and jelly #3

by Karen

It has been 10 1/2 mos since my mother died. I thought I would be over the worst of it by now. No, actually I thought I would be finished grieving at this point, Surprise, here I am missing Mother all over again. Here I am at another crossroad in my life and the one person I could count on to understand and help me decide what to do is gone. I think what makes it more painful is last year this time we were healing our relationship. I had my mother back even if it was for only a short time. Don't get me wrong I am so very grateful we had that time. I just miss her and I want to be able to sit down next to her and talk. I want to see her scrunched up face and here her say "I don't what to tell you" and then I would find the answer which I knew right along. No one can take her place or even come close. I guess I just have to get used to living with this empty space and know that through it all I'll be OK!

I feel the same way....
by: Chris

My mom was the person I went to for help with anything going on in my life too. it's only been three months. I still think at least 3 times a day, "OH, I should call Mom and tell her about this!", followed by the realization that she's not available by phone anymore. I too have felt a little lost without her advice or even just her listening. Hoping it gets better for both of us, with enough time.
