Today I leave my post for a while and I am stuck for an explanation.  It seems important to share but the words don’t come …

The bottom line is, I am going with my siblings to the place where I was born to scatter my mother’s ashes.  It is 10 months since she died and still the wounds are tender.

I want to say it will be a happy release, or a ad goodbye or even it will be good to be with my family for while ; but my grief has been complicated.

I am told it is happening and it needs to be done ; she would have wanted it.

so I remain bereft of words

maybe that is best.

    Bereavement is a lonely road that we each have to travel alone, for though we can empathize with, even sympathise with each other, we cannot take the burden away from the other no matter how much we love them. I hope you eventually find inner peace.
