Wow! I haven’t posted in a week. I guess I just haven’t been in the sharing kind of mood. For some reason this week has been particularly hard emotionally. It marked the 3 month anniversary of my mother’s death on Wednesday, the 20th. It also was my dad’s 62nd birthday on Tuesday. I’ve been very weepy. I know my dad is going through a hard time. He is lonely and that hurts me. I miss her so terribly every day but I do have my son and my husband and then I think of my dad… he lost his mate. As hard as losing my mother was, I know losing a mate of 38 years has got to be devastating. They were perfect for each other and truly were soul mates. I always compared my relationships to theirs, and none have matched theirs, sadly.
