Just reading everyones posts, I lost my mom a week and a half ago. She was 58, and lived with my children and myself. She was my best friend, partner and always felt like my soul mate. I miss her so terribly and feel so alone right now. I am a single mom so when the kids go to bed I get pretty sad. Thought I might pop on for some encouragement, today has been a bad one. Thanks and I am so sorry to everyone grieving or anticipating it, my heart breaks for you.

Blessings.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I too lost my mom when she was a major support in my life (my only at the time). There will be some hard days ahead but reach out for support and a shoulder when you need to.

It's been a little over a year since my mom died, and it's still very hard. I see a grief counselor still, about once a month. For the first couple of months it was every week. It's been helpful for me, in my situation. I really don't have anyone to talk about it with in my family.

BIG for you. I lost my mom a month ago today and it still hurts physically sometimes. We are here for you if you need to talk. I am seeing a grief counselor and it really helps.

Oh wow mama, I am so sad for you. There was a time when I was a single mom of 2 and one on the way, living with my mom and I can understand when you say she was like your partner. I can't imagine what you're going through. ((Big Hugs))

Here it is another month has passed, does not get a whole lot easier does it? I am just missing her tonight. The evenings were our time to chat and be together when I got the kids to bed and its pretty lonely here without her. I miss her smile, and just giving her a hug or touching her, we were always so close, sometimes, especially the last few months I just held her hand and loved her. I miss that, I miss her. Thank you all for your kind words.
