Losing my Mum
Tuesday, May 25, 2010
Around the same time that I joined SparkPeople I found out that my Mum had an inoperable tumour and she was given only 4-6 weeks live.
She clung on for 9 weeks slowly fading each day but never once complained or felt sorry for herself. She lost her battle on Thursday May 13th and leaves a massive hole in the lives of everyone that knew her.
I am struggling to come to terms with the fact that the one constant in my life has gone, the person that loved me no matter what, who was always there even when I was thousands of miles away in Australia.
We have her funeral to get through on Friday and then have to get used to living without her. She will always be with me in my heart and I hope to continue to live my life in way that would make her proud.
So this goes part of the way to explain why I have been so absent from the SP forums as I haven't quite known what to say
