Checking in - It's been a While

 I haven't really felt like posting so I haven't been. I got back from England last Wednesday. I thought about postponing my return so that I could help my sister sort through more of Mum's things, but I came back when I was scheduled to do so. I helped as much as I could. We planned and had Mum's funeral and sorted through some of her things. My sisters will sort out the rest and get Mum's flat ready for sale. It's been a long, emotional few weeks. I did get to spend some time with my sisters, especially my middle sister C, who I doubt I would have got through the past few weeks without. Her and her husband took me under their wing and made sure I never felt alone.  It's just been so draining. I still feel quite sad a lot of the time. 

I have some catching up to do, getting back into the swing of things and trying to think of the good times Mum and I had together.

  1. Feeling for you. Take your time.

  2. (((HUGS))) Sharon. Welcome back. It will take some time to stop hurting. Be gentle with yourself during the next several weeks and months.

  3. Much love to you and I'm sure you were a huge help to your sister while you were there.
    The sadness lasts but, somehow, I have found it becomes more manageable and is a reminder of a wonderful person.

  4. Good to hear from you, I've thought about you several times over the last weeks, hoping you were OK dealing with all the things that have to be sorted.
    Some ((hugs)) for you. Take Care

  5. Good that you made it back safely--though I'm sure it was very hard to leave. Glad your sister and husband were able to provide much needed support to you while you were there. Grief is a journey. Different for every person. Just be kind to yourself and make sure to take care of your emotional and your physical well-being, too. Thinking of you.

  6. Sending Hugs to you. It's undoubtedly a difficult time for all of you and it's good to hear that you were able to spend time with your sisters before you returned home. Be kind to yourself, and I wish you well xx

  7. Hi Sharon. I was wondering how you are getting along. Nice to see you posting again but please be gentle with yourself. x
