Careful what you wish for…

I have no words.

The past week I’ve been working through this awful time with words.  Tonight I have none.

My mother passed away today.  I expected relief.  Instead there is emptiness.

This whole evening the house has been dominated with people doing busy work.  People hoping to be useful.  I find an almost visceral need to make them all be still.  All I want is silence.

My mother lost her words at the end.  I now seem to have lost mine.

    I have no words of wisdom. I have words of comfort but they won't mean anything right now. The only way to get through this is to go through it. There is no timeline, no right or wrong way of doing things. There is only grief and the support and love of friends.My profound and heartfelt condolences on the loss of your mom.Hugs
