We lost our best friends our self extentions. A new chapter of our lives open but where to begin............ Many hugs to you. WE have to be strong and we are.
This is so true for many of us! Our best friends...extensions of ourselves, how well said, that.
CL, if you know you did right by your mom then you can lay your head down at night with some sort of peace. Remember I told you that mothers know what's in your heart. And yes, we are strong, partly because our mothers were.

It seems that when death occurs, it brings the worst out in families. I am and have been at the point that they can go screw themselves. I know I did more for mom than those two a$$holes did. She would never hesitate to call me and hubby for something, before she called them. I was the only one with her when she died. The nursing home could not get a hold of one of them, because he was online. Screw them. I have no guilt feelings here.
I have noticed that too Moonpie, that death brings out the worst...and the best in families. Maybe we can all rest our head knowing we did right by our mothers.

We carry the love of our lost families and friends in our hearts for the rest of our life,this is a good thing.
I hope you are feeling a bit better today,I do understand just what you are going through.
Thank you, Mia. Christmas is a tough one. It just seems to reinforce that things will never be the same, life will never be as we once knew it. But it can be made to be ours again, if different, but ours just the same.
