Mourning

#loss #Cancer #sadness I thought of you the day before yesterday, when I opened my front door and heard the birds chirp, signaling Spring’s approach. You always delighted in birds of any size.
I thought of you yesterday when the Robins returned and played in the plum tree. You enjoyed watching them flit among the branches.
I thought of you today when the tree outside your window bloomed with light plum-colored buds. You loved counting every bud and blossom.
I wonder what will remind me of you tomorrow, and the next day, and the day after that?
One thing I know, enough days have passed since you left for heaven, to convince me of this—I will never forget you, for nature will always remind me of my Mama. I miss you.

    Thank you for posting this! Last week, I almost told Liam that we would stop by to visit Gigi and caught myself, then held back the tears. I miss her so much!

      It’s surprising how knowledge of her loss doesn’t connect with the fact of her loss. I went into her room for several days to stare at her empty bed. The visual reminder eventually did help me process her departure. 😦
