“Into that good night…”

On this, the five year anniversary of my mother’s death, a re-blog. I miss you, mom. #grief #mentalhealth #cancer #motherdaughterrelationships

“Mother-daughter relationships are complex. The relief you feel to see your mother’s suffering end – when you watch the stress lines around a loved one’s eyes and mouth melt into that peaceful eternal sleep – can be palpable. But the grief for loss of what was and could have been can hang over you like a dark cloud. It can bury you, if you are not careful.”

  1. Very beautifully written Cami. My mom passed away on Nov. 15, 2010 … so we were likely dealing with the same emotions around the same time when our mom’s were passing. It’s a difficult time to let go of someone you’ve come to take for granted in your life … someone who has always been there for you. I sure wish I could pick up the phone and call my mom every once in a while. And, I’m sure that feeling never goes away – you just learn to deal with it.
    Take care my friend.
