My son paid me a birthday visit today. I guess the question on the sign says it all. Its times like this that the death of a loved one is felt most keenly. I do feel like the love she gave me was so well done that it will get me through these rough spots. I have spent some time today going through the many wonderful notes we wrote back and forth to each other over the years...a note that I just read had this in it:
Knowing that, according to her, I did things right does lessen the pain...I find renewed strength in looking at the blessings and the many wonderful memories. She truly loved me with all her heart, and I am still amazed about that.
"I am so thankful for David, helping me through this rough patch. I love him so much..."
Thought I would start this topic to share a bit on how I am dealing with the aftermath. I have not been out yet since she died. I plan on an outing to the mountains tomorrow. Something about the wild horses that calms my soul...
If anyone on this forum would like to share their "aftermath" as in "After The Care Giving," please feel free to share here.
