Re: If you are missing your mother today...

How very sweet of you to post this.  I lost my Mother last week.  I am one of six children.  It's different for me because we never ever had a quality mother/daughter relationship.  I was the child she focused all her bad feelings toward.  I won't go into detail but I now, at 65, am in counseling with depression and PTSD.  I feel like I am the just a casualty left behind on a battlefield of trying a lifetime to win her love.  I know now I will never have that.  It's over.  Now I have to figure out how to get through the rest of my life dealing with that emptiness.

@Equuleus , I am sorry for your loss.  Your loss is so fresh.  I hope time gives you perspective.  If this is overwhelming for you, talk to a therapist perhaps.  I had a good relationship with my mother but have a sister who is a challenge.  I have learned to deal with it.  I am one of ten children so I understand a large family dynamic.  Your mother is such an important figure in your life.  I wish you peace and well being, LM

Thanks.  I am in counseling.  It's been so long of a time living as I did that I am not sure if I'll ever understand it.  But I do wish all those that had a loving mother they are missing peace in knowing what they shared and continue to share through their lives.  I do know the emptiness, but in a different way.  Peace and love to all of you.

My Mom passed away in 2009.  There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of her and miss her.  Holidays are the times I miss her the most.
