Holding each other up

Today was the emotional day of making arrangements for mom. It’s amazing how exhausting that is – it seems like we were just in those offices making arrangements for dad.

However my sister, brother in law, myself and mom’s caregiver made the best of a stressful situation. I don’t know what we would have done the last couple of years without Heather. She quickly became part of the family and she’s become so important to all of us. I particularly appreciated her being there today and jokingly referred to her as my rented husband who I leaned on for support.

We all need to work through this grieving process together. Together it makes an unbearable situation bearable. It’s not joyful, but it’s deep seated soul happiness being surrounded by my tribe

  1. My heart is with you. My best friend is going through the same thing. I am so sorry. I can’t imagine your pain. Thank you for expressing your feelings and experience so others can benefit. I sent this over to my friend. Thank you so much. I am so sorry.
