They have been there for me as much as they can. They work but they have still made the time to help me. I'm very lucky. At least now I have found all the wonderful posters here who are here in this thread who understand about losing a loved one. There are so many memories that I have, some good and some not so good. I know I will never forget my husband but now it's time to manage my own life and move on.
You can and you will. I am still missing my mother who died in 2015 on my birthday. She was almost 100 & I knew she could die any day but I was still not ready & even today, as I was picking my crop of Scuppernong grapes I thought "I wish Mama was here. She loved these so much!" So I picked half of them & left the other half for our mocking birds to enjoy. I am sure she would have approved.
Hope there is room for one more here. I feel for you Blue 501. I'm the sole carer for my 94 year old mom and my family live far away.
She's doing well, but it's a 'Snakes And Ladder game,' and 'What you gain on the slide, you lose on the swing.' I don't know how I will cope when the day comes where I don't have to go into her bedroom at 6.00 am with a cup of coffee and a cookie.
Usually when I go into a thread, I try to read all the replies before I respond, but you will have to forgive me if I don't even try to read almost 12,000 posts.
