    Feeling a wee bit sad tonight. It is the anniversary of my mothers death and also what would have been my parents wedding anniversary. My mom died in my dads arms on their 53rd wedding anniversary two years ago. It is difficult to believe 2yrs have passed already.

    Thanks for the thoughts
    I find the day difficult as I have to spend a deal of it talking to and supporting my sister and father. Sometimes there doesn't seem any time for my own grief or feelings.

    I hope today was a better day for you. It is so hard when you have to be strong for others. Just remember to make time for you , wether to grieve or just remember her. I lost my Mom 12 1/2 years ago and I still miss her with all my heart. There are times I sit quietly outside and "have coffee with her" She loved touring little chapels and big beautiful churches. When ever I see one on my travels, I go in, find a seat and "share " it with her. It may sound crazy to some but it's my time and makes me feel closer to her. Hugs

    Thanks for that.

    I miss mum everyday. - Thing is we were never close in life as I think she felt I disapointed her.
    I can honestly say the closest I got to her without a barbed comment was when she was dead and I was finally able to kiss her and talk to her without a snide rebuff.

    Despite that I loved her very much and she is among the most strongest and respected women I have known.
