Quite some time since I visited TP: Mum died 15 Sept 2011 (forever etched in my memory) By the way, it's even hard to type the word "died", but it is the harsh reality...
A few days ago I was speaking to a neighbour (To explain, I live in a very traditional community where, even if you don't publicise all, everyone knows what's happensing anyway) who, said "it must be quite liberating" (in that now I don't have to worry, I guess ? about Mum).
I didn't say anything BUT... how can people be so crass? I would NEVER think of losing Mum as being liberating (or is that just how I am?)
I thought I had prepared myself for losing Mum (how much of an idiot am I?) but I think about her and miss her every day (literally): tears come very easily: I don't wish the harshness of this on anyone but clearly ignorance is bliss
