Pain Of Loss Still Hurts 2 Years Later
My eyes have been tearing up all month, feeling the loss of my mother, yet at the same time feeling such an appreciation for her love and vast gifts she gave me during her life. I was so lucky to have this wonderful woman as my mother.
Never To Dismiss Another Human Being
Even though she had dementia over 1/3 of her life, she was an amazing role model. Not only to myself but most anyone she met or touched. The stories I’ve heard from family, friends, coworkers and even those that cared for her at the nursing home for 14 years have touched my heart and my soul. The lessons she taught us all even when ill taught me never to dismiss another human being. Be open to listening and learning from others has so many benefits to us as individuals and as communities.
Shortly, I will go out to the cemetery with my daughter and granddaughter, to honor my mother. Although we know her spirit is no longer there, we find comfort in coming together in place were we can show our respect to both of my parents and the others laid to rest there.
Know how much we love you mom!
Know the powerful impact you had on others and that I will continue to share the lessons of love and understanding regarding dementia and how to care for others, with people around the world.
