Having a hard morning

Mar 07, 2016 10:08 AM

I know that my Aunt passed away back in the end of December but while I was doing laundry today I out the last 2 shirts that I had bought her. I was doing okay up until then, I guess the anniversary of my father in law's death being the 4th and us going to the cemetery yesterday and today it just all hit me at once. Sorry I just to talk a little to get it off my chest. She was the one person I could talk to about anything and now I'm sitting here alone with my thoughts and her laundry.

Moparmom there is no time limit on grieving!! It's all in your own time and in your own way. December was not long ago and it stands to reason to seeing the shirts that you bought your Aunt would bring you to tears. I am sending you gentle, consoling {{{{Hugs}}}} and prayers that you find peace in your heart and soul.💕🙏🏻🌻

I'm sorry you are struggling this morning. I can't even imagine how hard it must be.

Moparmom, I lost my Mom on December 10, 1994. Some days are just as hard as the day it happened, other days its okay. While it's never "easy" it does get easier.

You can cry on my shoulder if you need to, just please use the left one as it's the right one that went out without me. ;) (Hope that gave you a giggle even if just a small one.) Sending you gentle cyber hugs.

Moparmom, big hugs! I know it hurts still as it's so short a time and you really didn't have much time to grieve from the pressure of all you needed to do. Take your time to feel & grieve at your own pace. Some day your years will be from memories of joyful times that suddenly come back to you. I promise! 🙂💕🙏🌼

Moparmon I am sorry that you are still grieving but as had been said already, you will grieve for a while. Then you will still have moment every now and then but mostly instead of tears, you will be able to smile and laugh at the things they done. Just not while it is so fresh like it is now for you. I takes time. Everyone is different. But for now, I am sorry that you have to bear this sadness. My heart goes out to you. Best wishes to you.
