I lost my beautiful 47 year old daughter to ovarian cancer August 2016.
Yes, I cried uncontrollably when she died even though I knew she was going to a better place without the horrific pain and suffering . I also knew how much her 3 children, her husband and I and others would miss her love and laughter!
I cry on the anniversary of her passing each year, on her birthday and her childrens’ events she and they are missing . I miss her on the holidays and so many significant mother/daughter times!
I well up when I look at her picture and when thoughts of her enter my mind.
I know that grieving is natural and we all handle it differently.
I feel horrible when I cry a long time but relieved to have released some of the tension . When I try not to, it feels so unnatural for me but must when around others in social situations as they become uncomfortable.
Others seem to find it “easier” to let go and look to the future as I’m attempting to do.
I will never stop loving my dear daughter and missing her.
Here’s a wonderful piece that was recently shared with me:
