It’s absolutely senseless that a daughter is without her mother; that children are without their Nana; a husband is without his wife and a son is without his mama. This is now our family and it has been since my Mommy went to heaven in 2010. This will be our 4th Christmas without her. I remember as a child, she made Christmas the most amazing time ever. As hard as it is, we try to honor her with keeping with all the holiday traditions that she instilled in us. And each year since, I create a special wreath to bring to the cemetery to place it by her tomb stone. My pain, my yearning and my need for my Mommy runs deep. Loosing her is just senseless.

I am sorry for your loss of your mom. this loss will be felt more at this time of the year. All one can do is to make a special memory each year that will honour them. Death is part of life and comes as a package and often we don't know what loss feels like till it happens. I lost my mom 10yrs. ago and it still hurts every now and then. When Christmas songs are being sung at this time of the year on TV it hurts. I lost my husband to cancer 19 months ago and this will be my second Christmas without him and this year it feels worse. I was surprised I got through the first Christmas without him. I was numb. I am feeling more, so I guess this is why.
No matter what we do it will always hurt. As the years go by it won't feel quite so raw. Best we can do is honour the ones we have lost and live better for the ones we have left.
