Re: God, I miss my mom!!! I'm new to this site.

My mom died in her sleep Easter Sunday of this year. She was 81 years old. I miss her terribly. My dad is still here and he grieves for her every day. I miss talking to her and sharing with her. I miss being able to tell her how I am feeling and what's going on in my life. I love my dad but he's a problem solver. He can't just talk things through like women do.

But I know that she is with me. I feel her arms around me and I feel her in my heart. That's what makes it possible for me to go on. My sisters and I cried so many tears at the funeral and we still get on the phone and call each other and cry. But I cry for me, for what I am missing. And yet, she is here with me. And she is keeping me safe.

I know your loss. I know the feeling of missing the good advice and the time to talk. I miss having tea in the afternoon with my mom. But I did have those times with her and I will never forget them.
