A friend of mine’s Mom recently passed away. Today is the funeral. It will be hard to say goodbye to a sweet, kind woman who lovingly raised her family and whom I knew well.
When we lose a parent, no matter the relationship, it’s hard. On many levels, it’s complicated and the tears that fall are mixed with so many emotions. Even though we may know that the end is coming, it is still seemingly a shock to us when it happens and we’re left broken. Even when one can say, She lived a good life and it was time for her to go home to God, it doesn’t change the fact that she has passed away and is no longer here on earth. I don’t like to hear that saying. I can’t help myself. I know people mean well when they say it, but it still just feels wrong to me for some sensitive reason that I don’t think I can actually name.
I’ve lost a parent so I understand and now at this age, other friends have lost parents as well. So we have formed a group of parentless adult children who are helping each other to endure the sadness. We support each other. We hug with the understanding of how it feels. We help each other through the hard times.
Isn’t that what life is about?
Hug your loved ones today please…
My heart goes out to your friend.. And yes losing our parents falls hard.. And wonderful you are gathering together for support.. 🙂 xx ❤
