My mom passed away a little over 6 years ago, and I’ve dealt with the grief since then. There are rarely tears, just super fond memories and smiles when I am reminded of her.
In the past few days though, I have been missing her terribly.
I don’t know if it’s the holidays coming up or what, but it seems like everywhere I turn I am reminded of her. And it makes me feel a bit melancholy that I can’t just call her up to talk and visit her for a hug.
It feels even more pronounced now that my sister-in-law may be facing a cancer diagnosis.
How do you reconcile knowing they are in a far better place against the fact that you don’t get to see them anymore.
It feels unjust. But that’s life. I just don’t like how it works that’s all.
