A quote for my mom.

"Nothing in life will call upon us to be more courageous than facing the fact that it ends. But on the other side of heartbreak is wisdom". ~ Sarah, I Wish I Was Here.

My mother passed away early this morning. Mom was a complicated woman and ours was a complicated relationship. In spite of it all, I always loved my mother and I respected her.

"For better or worse, she is the voice in my head pushing me to do better. ~ Lucy Kelson, Two Weeks Notice.

I want to thank you all for you kind words and guidance over the past 10 months. I don't think I would have made it without you. August 30th, 2016.


Rainmom, how ironic that I'm among the first to post. She was difficult, but she was your mother and your son's grandmother. I hope that she is at peace finally and that you are able to heal yourself and take care of you and your son.
Oh, Rainmom. I can only imagine how complicated your feelings are right now. Be well, and be comforted by the knowledge that you stood by your mom.
Rainmom, I am so sorry. Death can be hard to sort through when a relationship is so complicated. But you loved her to the end. Big hugs to you and Rainman.
Hugs, Rainmom, and may your mother be at peace. If your feelings are complicated, at least you know you're facing them truthfully. It's platitudes that are easy. Be kind to yourself.
I am so sorry for your loss rainmom.

Rainmom, you have been an inspiration in the care of your Mother, despite the complications of your relationship, and now you can move forward, knowing that you did all that you could, and sort those feelings in the coming weeks. I'm so sorry for your loss, you are one incredible lady, for her and to us, here on the AC! Please know that I will be thinking of you during this difficult time. Love, Stacey B
