In Loving Memory…

Of my Wonderful and Loving Mother. Mom, I miss you and will always love you!

My dear friends and followers I haven’t been able to give you an update because this has been the hardest thing I’ve had to deal with. My Mom passed away on October 13th and was laid to rest on October 18th. Everything around that time is still a little hazy for me but when you think that things can’t get worse, well, they can and did. But when you hit bottom the only direction to go is up. So I’m in the process of moving up and on and I’ll be crafting again and sharing with you all again soon. Thanks for hanging in there with me – I always appreciate your visits and comments!

Thank you, my crafty friends!

This is my Mom and Grandson on our last visit together. He was meeting his Great Grandmother for the very first time! You can see how happy they both look!

2013 ~ My Grandson was born and my Mom went to Heaven ~ a very emotional year!

    I am so very sorry for your loss. I can honestly say that you resemble your mom and she was a beautiful woman. I know that it is very hard right now and your life has changed and from your post; has probably filled up with a lot of pain, anger, depression and regret. I can tell you that I lost my grandpa who raised me back in May of 2009. He was my father in every sense of the word. He was also my rock. My world. My everything. No two people were closer then he and I in many's eyes. It has been 4 years and most of the emotions that I named a few sentences ago are gone except for the pain and depression, which in my opinion is the hardest ones to get through and live life with. It sounds like you have more going on then just a loss of a loved one and if you need a person to talk to, please reach out to me as I am a great listener, I won't judge and if you knew me or my story from the past two years, you will know that I completely understand and know what rock bottom is and I too, am climbing back up. I ended up homeless with nothing just to give you a sense of how much I've lost aside from a loved one. Keep your head up, open your heart to those who want to be there for you, even strangers from blogland like me... because you are definitely NOT alone and you don't need to feel like you have hide your emotions or put on a fake smile... your creativity will come back to you when you are feeling back to yourself again and when you do create and post .. we will all be here just as we were before. Reach out my dear sweet blog friend if you need to chat. My deepest condolences.
    Hugs,
    Jo

    1. Dear Jo, I wasn't even finished with your first sentence when the tears started flowing. You are a very wise person! Yes, there is so much more to the story but it's just so to talk about, even to type the words. I want to thank you for reaching out to me - that means so much. I would love to chat with you. Thank you again, Angie

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. She was a great lady and fun to be around. I hope that I will have at least half of her energy when I'm her age - I hope I live to be her age - my Mom was 93 years young! Almost 94 this January. Last year when I went to visit her, we stayed up until 4am laughing like two school girls. I love those memories and I wil treasure them forever. Thanks again, Scootingranny

  4. I am so sorry to hear of your loss, a mother is one of the hardest things to lose, I know my mother passed 9 years ago on Oct 26th and every year come this time the depressions and tear begin all over again. It will get easier in time but you will never forget her. I wish I could reach out and give you a hug and let you cry on my shoulder/ Take care my friend and just hang on to those wonderful memories of your beautiful mother.

  6. You are in my thoughts and prayers. I understand what you are experiencing, it's hard. The feelings, thoughts and emotions are all normal, but it doesn't feel normal. Just remember to take baby steps, step by step, day by day, hour by hour or as we need to do sometimes, minute by minute. Everyone handles it differently. I see my Mom everyday in little things and so does my family. We all feel her presence and you will to ... hang in there!

  8. I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my Mom on April 30th and it was so difficult. I cared for her almost 4 years and learned so much from her, the stories will always carry in my heart. I also lost my Dad 3 years ago, well almost 4 come January 18th. Both was very difficult for me as I cared for them both before passing. Dad I only had here for a few months before he passed. I miss them so much, we did everything together even before they got sick and needed 24/7 care. Remember those good times and cherish them. Scrapbook them when you are up to it. I have a scrapbook going of them and it has sat for awhile, just as the afghan I was making my Mom when she passed. It was almost done but just can't seem to pick it up and work on it yet. My family was so close to my parents, even my husband. My 3 kids adored them and of course would do anything for them.
    As others has said if you need to talk or a shoulder to cry on just say the word. Big hugs to you and I will pray that the memories will get you through this difficult time in your life and things will start to go better for you. I know how you feel on things not getting better, less than a month later I also lost one of my aunts and with in 3 months I lost my Mom, and 2 aunts and almost a cousin.

  9. Oh Angie...my heart goes out to you and your family. I am so glad that you have such beautiful memories of your mom to cherish. The photo of she and your grandson, her great-grandson, is truly one to cherish. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

  10. Oh Angie, I am so very, very sorry! Tough times indeed! I lost both of my parents over the last few years. They never got to see my first home I ever owned (though my dad was able to see the lot and the model home). Both of my parents inspire every piece of art I do. I was blessed to come from two uniquely creative people.

    My heart goes out to you and your family!

    1. Thank you Jamie for your thoughtful words! I'm so sorry about your parents also. It's hard losing parents at any age and I found it harder to rebound this time but it's getting better - slowly but surely. You are blessed that you carry the creativity that your parents instilled in you - it's something that will always keep them close to you.
      Thanks again for your kind words - I really appreciate them!
      Angie
