Trying to find my way back to the blogging world....thanks so much to each of you who shared your kind words with me and who continued to let me know you where thinking of me. It really meant so much. It has been a struggle for me to blog, I just never felt "it", each time I attempted to sit down and do so. At any rate, I'm thankful for you my blogging friends :-)
The loss of my sweet Mom, well, it is an entirely different experience from losing my Dad. She, was my Mom. She carried me, she and I literally connected to each other, she birthed me, taught me, loved me........she Mothered me. Never, so aware of this start to finish thought of us, until now.
We had a very nice celebration of her life. Family came from out of state, which gave way for opportunity of stronger, closer family relationships to be formed. A pulling together of those that remain. We are family.
Weeks turned to now, months of a "limbo" state...daily thoughts of, "she was just here?"....to " I can't believe she didn't come home." Trying to focus on the fact that I had her with me the last six weeks prior to her going into the hospital. So very thankful for her and I to have that important time. Thankful she was able to experience " Khloe joy"...she was so alive with joy when her eyes met Khloe's every morning and Khloe would get so excited to see her Nanny! Many have noticed how much of my Mom we can see in Khloe.....so, she is near to me still.
Life does go on and joy does return... I am so happy to think of her with my Dad again.
In the meantime our little Khloe turned one! Can you believe it?
I am posting birthday photos for your viewing pleasure.
I'm confident you will love them :-)
