Well I don’t know what to say today. I miss my mom and dad everyday. It will be almost a year since my dad passed away on October 13th and that doesn’t even seem possible. I can’t believe it but I know it’s true. My moms has been gone four months too. I started this blog almost five years ago when my mom was just diagnosed with dementia. Boy does that seem like a lifetime ago. So much has changed now it’s seems still unreal to me. I wish I would of told them more how much I loved them. Now it’s to late. I’m so glad I took care of them as long as I did. I have so many good memories now. It doesn’t really get any easier as the days go on. I have so many things I could say to them.
Even though my mom had dementia I miss her just being here. Her smile, her laugh she cared for me to the very end. I don’t regret any of the time I spent with her. I know they are together again and happy.
I started a new job two weeks ago at a call center. I’m enjoying working again and it helps me through. I hope to keep writing this blog. I’ve enjoyed it so much! I hope someone will be touched by it. It would be worth it to me.

First I’d like to say that grief doesn’t have a timeline… it’s an ongoing process…. Secondly… you did tell them many times how much you loved them, with every caring thing you did for them ‘with love’….Thirdly I believe there is a bond between those who love and are loved deeply, that even persists when death occurs… So take time to heal… at some point the memories will become ‘sweet memories’ instead of now when they bring tears and sometimes sadness… Diane
Keep writing. My mom went to heaven in May. As memories crop up, I’m trying to write about them. It truly helps me work through the grief. Once in awhile, something I write helps a fellow sojourner get through something they’re dealing with too.
