What Works For You?

 You can either reach out to people when you are hurting or keep it private. I don't know if there is a right way to do it, but I like to reach out. My daughter is the exact opposite. I guess that you have to decide what you want to share and what you don't. I just received an email sending me some hugs and it did make me feel better!

Two Days Ago My Mom Passed Away

 It's probably going to get harder, but I'm doing my best to take care of me right now. I know that mom is in a better place and that is what I'm concentrating on and not me...  I will get through this!

I Don't Like Depending On People...

I don't like depending on people because people leave all the time. Because at the end of the day all you have is yourself and that has to be enough.

Speak To Me...


" Speak to me of lovely things, of treasures yet to be found, of peace that flows like a river. Tell me of tranquil places that no hand has marred, no storm has scarred."
Joyce Hiffler

Still no news of Mom...

Am I a Horrible Person?

 I had a hard enough time seeing Mom this week and knowing that it could be the last time. She is eating only a few spoonfuls of yogurt a day and a sip or two of Boost. How can she exist on that??  It's been a week and the staff is obviously just waiting because they don't have her on IV.  Don't know how I feel about that, but that isn't my mom in that bed.  She needs to let go so that she can go and be with dad!

Now I have to start thinking about the funeral that I really don't want to go to. I don't want my last memories to be of that day. Does that make me a horrible person??

Thoughts for a Rainy Saturday Morning

 Worrying does not take away tomorrow's troubles. It takes away today's peace...

And Mom is still with us! I have no idea how this works!!
