I have been away from the site last few weeks, we went on vacation. While we were gone (long road trip) I of course thought about Mum. I also came to a realization that my whole being has changed since she's been gone. It's not to say I am out-right miserable, but I am less happy, joyful now. I used to feel lighter and laugh lighter, know what I mean? When we were out on vacation in Disney- sure I was happy, but not the happy I was before. I guess one could even say that I am serious now. Before I felt guilty any time I had a good time after Mum passed. Now I know that was just a phase needed to be passed through, now no matter how hard I try I just can't get that back. I know she's up there cheering me on. I swear I can hear her say "call someone up and go for coffee". Problem is no one really understands why I am still having a hard time and quite frankly really don't feel up to an hour or two of bullshit pleasantries. Thanks for listening gals.

Of course the thoughts started to slip in my mind how much easier this move would be if my wife was still alive to share it with me. I could feel myself slipping into despair and decided...
