losing my mom was one of the most surreal things I ever experienced. Though her and I weren’t close when she passed I grieved in a way I never have before. This was 8 years ago. I still cry when I see things that remind me of her. Sometimes I smell her. We are closer now than ever before. I think that was the most unexpected thing to happen. I am so sorry your mom died. May she live on where she is the wind, the beautiful Mountain View you shared, the napkin in a book, the face that looks back when you look in the mirror.
Sending so much love your way. Gosh, such a powerful and heartbreaking, drenched-in-love and actually wonderful post all mixed in together, Cayly. I am so desperately sorry for your loss, which I can't even begin to imagine. I haven't been where you've been, but as a fellow human being trust me, I feel for you and am sending you all the strength and love I can muster. 😘
Your words and pictures paint a scene of such love and happiness shared with your mom. Those are wonderful things. ♥️
I am really sorry, my goodness...that happened so fast. My mom has been gone more of my life now than I had her and the grief over that loss was one of the most surreal and difficult experiences I have ever lived through. It still hits me occasionally, nearly 30 years later but it's softer now. I wish you moments of comfort and ease during this season, gentleness with yourself most of all. It's the only thing I wish I could go back and do/be differently...more kindness towards myself. x
