I lost my daughter 3 weeks ago today. This forum as been the one place I know I can find comfort, sympathy, advice, and shared pain. Oh, and hugs! I know most of us are trying to deal with the holidays, the pain of losing our loved one, and the enormous emotions that seem to hold us captive. Remembering my daughter is not a problem, I can't forget her, she is part of my soul! It is how I remember her that helps me. She taught me to say I love you, to be caring and compassionate, to be strong, to laugh. Those are the things I try to focus on, but am not always successful. I know she would want me to not be sad, to cherish positive thoughts of our time together. It not easy without feeling the pain of missing her, but if I listen carefully, I can hear and feel her wanting so much for me to be at peace, just as she is.
