I'm hurting. I stayed with her for almost 2 weeks and came home to be with my family for Christmas. Just yesterday I was planning another trip up to see her again, but I got a call this morning that she had passed. My sister was with my mom for the last several days, but mom had passed when no one was around. Maybe it was meant to be this way. The week ahead is going to be so difficult with the funeral and all. I find myself strong at times, and at other times broken and crying. Right now, I am in a daze and can't get myself motivated to pack my suitcase.
I'm very sorry for your lose. My mom is my world and do I can't begin to imagine your pain. My God be close to you and your family during this difficult time.
