Sad day

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Today marked the two year anniversary of my Mother's passing. It's still such a huge loss and life will really never be the same again. I was so lucky to have had the mother I did, she was my biggest fan, my friend, and she always loved me, unconditionally. I think of her very day in some way. It was eerie today to have realized the exact day and then have Miranda Lambert's song, "Over You" come on the radio at a that precise time. All too often, I just feel at a loss, it seems so wrong that she is gone. My family will never be the same again. My father is planning on re-marrying this June, at age 82 years old to someone he met at his support group. I just can't get past the disloyalty to my mother, it's wrong, I can't accept it, even though I want him to be happy, he feels like a stranger now.

I have to work all this through, I know, and I thought putting it in writing might somehow make it better, but it doesn't seem to help.

One foot in front of the other....

    I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my Mom almost 14 years ago and I still feel that loss so much.
I do know that if I go first I would want my husband of 36 years to remarry. He is not someone to live alone and I would want him happy again.
I pray that you find some peace about it....kath

    Your mother sounds like a wonderful woman, you were blessed to have had her in your life, as was your father! Perhaps, it was because of the years he spent with you mother that he is ready to begin the next stage of his life by marrying the lady from his support group. It is not uncommon for men who were in happy marriages to marry after the death of their spouse. I wonder what your mother would've wanted your father to do? My thoughts and prayers are with you, as I understand how difficult life stages are!

Blessings to you!
