Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #274 - I still miss you, but it's easier (sometimes)

Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #274 - I still miss you, but it's easier (sometimes)

Hi Mom,

A short one today.

It's not actually Throwback Thursday. It's Wednesday according to the date and time stamp. But for me, it is THURSDAY as I am behind again.

So, just one thought to keep it brief.

I still miss you, Mom, but the pain of the loss is a bit less raw, some of the time.

I miss you, but I am learning to love with missing you as it's just a fact of life, something that I cope with every day.

I have my phone alarm set to 10:10 a.m. so that every morning, at the time of your death, I am reminded of your passing. It's not like I need a reminder to think about you. I think about you often. I miss you all the time, but now, that's the new normal.

The disbelief is passing, too. It's been 276 days since you died. That's a lot of days.

Reflect and connect.

Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.

Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.


- Days ago = 276 days ago

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
