This part of the journey is finally over

My mom passed away this morning.
I'm still in shock and disbelief. But I am so at peace that she finally has no pain.
Thank you to everyone that has been leaving messages and emailing me with their support and concern.
I have not been to sleep since last Thursday and think I will try to catch a few minutes of quiet time.......

I am so very sorry for your loss. It goes without saying, if you need anything, anything at all, I'm merely a short drive away.

You are in our prayers and thoughts.

There are no words to make this part of the journey easier. I know too well. If you ever need a sounding board I am here. Perhaps your mother will meet mine in heaven...

My mom passed away on October 4th, 4 years ago.

Christmas, Mother's Day... all the holidays will be difficult.

The little girl in me always has a hard time dealing with the fact that my mom is gone.

I'm so sorry...

When my grandpa died, one of my friends sent me a card that said, "In these, the saddest of times, it is important to remember that although our loved ones cannot live forever, their memories can, and do."

I've never forgotten that. I hope that you might find at least some small measure of comfort in it. You and your family are in my thoughts...

Checking in again. Your mother has joined my mother and my dear hubby's mother in watching over all of us. Some miraculous things have happened since my mother died. Wrecks avoided. Joyous events occuring. I want to believe that it is her spirit there, lifting me up.

You were a great daughter to her. You let her finish her life on her terms. As independent as she could be. You have such inner strength to keep taking care of her. I admire you for that.

You were pretty awesome and brave through it all.

I can't really express how proud of you I am.

Every morning since I got back, I wake-up, and first thing I think of, is better call mom.

Then I remember...

Checking in - miss you. (HUGS) (OMG I typed JUGS first...d'oh!)

Just to let you know I'm thinking of you.Sending warm thoughts, comfort and strength your way. Hope you are getting some much needed rest. Hope you are having a moment here and there of normalcy. Catching a minute alone to breathe. All the things you may need to help your heart start to heal.

God forgive me but I wish the Gman would just close his eyes and not wake up. Life is a nightmare right now and I know I will be sad when he is gone but I know it will be for the best.

Thinking of you

Stopping in to say hello and let you know I've been thinking of you.

Waiting patiently for you to return... As a side note, when my mother passed away, I blogged about it all. I'm not so sure that was a good idea. Time heals all wounds right? Well, not when you can read each grief-filled moment over and over.
