Many of you may know that I lost my mother about 6 weeks ago. My siblings along with others in my family expected our mom’s imminent death; so we were not surprised when it happened. In fact, I thought that I prepared myself very well for her passing.
What I didn’t expect however, was the prolonged torment that I would feel afterwards. Her death affected me in many ways that has surprised me.
For example, I was so sad and depressed after her death, I could no longer write. I would sit at my computer, knowing what topic I wanted to write about, but the flow of intelligent sentences would not come. I even began to doubt myself as a healthy warrior, and perhaps this was the most depressing thing of all.
The best I could do was to make visits to a few of the blogs that I enjoy reading. But still, the writing would not come back.
Thankfully, I’m feeling stronger today, and hopefully I will resume writing on my blog once again. Because I’m committed to writing more than just my blog, I seldom write a post more than 2 to 3 times a week.
The ache in my heart for my mother is still very much there, and I suppose I will have to deal with my grief forever. In many ways my mom was like my best friend. I know she would disapprove of me not going on with my life as before.
I am struggling with my loss, and am trying hard to regain my footing.
I am returning to my blog and will begin posting once again, 2 to 3 days a week as I did before. I want to thank my faithful readers for supporting me in the past, and I look forward to your comments on my future blog post.
Thanks for your visit today.
