The Mourning Daughter

Dear Callie,

Grieving our lost loved ones is not easy.  We feel that their presence — their energy — has been stolen from us, leaving us less than whole.

You can return to the life you loved — highlighted with the remembrances of your mother and the vitality she brought to everything and everyone around her.

Please don’t admonish yourself for experiencing this.  Grieving is a natural process.

However, ask yourself this:  Would your mother have wanted you to drift aimlessly about, wallowing in endless sorrow?  Your were close to her.  What would she have wanted you to do?  What did the two of you enjoy doing before she passed?

“Moving on” doesn’t necessitate radical changes in your life from before.  You can return to the life you loved — highlighted with the remembrances of your mother and the vitality she brought to everything and everyone around her.

Chin up, young person.  Wherever your mother is now, I’m sure she’d enjoy seeing you smile.

– M
