Welcome

Welcome to my blog. I hope we can help each other endure the pain of the addiction of a daughter or son.

In The Sweet Bye and Bye

My Mom passed today at around 12:30.  Eventhough I knew it was eminent it nearly knocked me off my feet. I felt, dizzy, then nautious, then weak and wracked with sobs. My husband and son were very kind. They put me to bed and lay down with me just patting me for comfort.

My sister and father said that she passed very peacefully. They were sitting by her and she just stopped breathing. They were not even sure that she had passed until the hospice nurse came in to confirm it. It is very sad eventhough I know that there was no more quality of life left for her. I will miss her terribly.

Thanks for all of your prayers and kind words. They meant a lot to me. I will fly back to Florida one last time to spend a few days with my sister and father. It seems so odd not having a service right now. My Dad wants to wait till he brings her ashes back home in the Spring. She had last rights and communion several times before she died. We all said we loved each other and that we will meet again in the sweet bye and bye on the other side. There was no unfinished business.

  4. Anna, I am sorry for your loss but they are never gone. You will hear her again in the words you say. The values you hold dear are the ones she taught. Her wisdom will rise within you and glow.

    My dad 30 years ago and after the initial pain left me I began to realize my father was not gone. He just moved and began living within me.

  7. My heartfelt condolences to you Anna. You will always miss your Mom, but she will always be with you (now that I'm in my early 50's, it is my Mom I see in the mirror looking back at me).

    I lost my Mom 5 years ago in March; and the good news is that time takes away the pain and often leaves us with the most precious of our memories,and I cherish that daily.

  8. Oh, Sweetheart, I am so sorry. My closest friend also lost her mom this week and like you said - even though you know its eminent, its still a huge shock to hear the words and feel the permanence of it. I hope the time with your father and sister brings healing. It takes time. Sending you hugs and prayers.
