Let's tackle money issues we face every day
Pat,I am so sorry for you that she is gone. The pain may linger ... be patient with yourself as you grieve. I wish someone had told me when my father died that grief is an unpredictable monster, attacking at times you'll never imagine. Just don't be hard on yourself as you work through the emotions. Give yourself time to be sad, and don't set a time limit on the sadness. Seventeen years later, as I approach the anniversary of my dad's death this Thanksgiving, I still profoundly feel the absence. That said, I also am profoundly grateful for the loving relationship and for the peace that comes with my belief that I will see him again after death.May God bless you, Pat!--Heidi RaffertyHarrodsburg, Kentucky
