Friday 2 January 2015


Sorry, no cheerful New Year wishes here. To me, 2015 will be the year that my mother will not see. Hard for me to rejoice. There will be times to be merry later of course, but not now.

Désolée, pas de voeux joyeux ici. Pour moi, 2015 est l'année que ma maman ne verra pas. Difficile de me réjouir. Il y aura des moments joyeux plus tard bien sûr, mais pas maintenant.

Being further along on much the same path as you, I can only say that the first year, all those important days just keep feeling all the harder especially.

I woke up from dreams in those first months where my mother would be, and the moment I'd wake up again, the realization would set in again that she was gone, and it felt like it was hitting me all over again.

I am so sorry to learn of your loss. This is a sad time, a time to mourn. It is also a time to remember those sweet memories and love. Here is to nursing that hole in your life, and heart. - Peace to you this new year.

Such grief is something another person cannot completely understand. Even if we have experienced the loss of a parent, the relationship and feelings of each of us is unique. Again, a beautiful visual expression with a clear transition from sad to sadder.

Comme je te comprends, Nathalie.
Nous avons perdue une amie juste après Noël.
Il y a des années qui finissent mal qui font qu'on commence mal celle d'après.

The time may come later, Nathalie. Time, for you, needs to go slowly, and will go slowly. Transitions are not easy.

je prie pour toi Nathalie. et merci pour ta sincerite.
la mort est pleine d'angoisse et moi je crois que quand on dit les choses comme bien cetait le temps et elle ou il a vecu une longue vie ce n'est pas assez honnete. la mort d'une personne proche est plein d'angoisse et on ne peut pas enlever ca avec ces mots.
mais j'aime beaucoup ta promesse de joie en disant transition il y a l'espoir de la joie dans ce titre et que ca vient vite pour toi chere amie.
je t'embrasse.

My heart went out to you, when I learnt of your loss.
I pray that your memories of mother will help to heal the empty void

Both my parents went years ago, but I still see and hear them in my dreams
May it be my comment may bring you some small comfort

Thank you Graham. I feel the same with my parents. I know they are walking by my side and will continue to do so for as long I live.
