Feeling sad today
My mother has been gone nearly 8 months. I had to rush to clean out her apartment, so still have bags and boxes to go through in my place, not to mention the chock-a-block full storage compartment. I haven't been able to bring myself to do anything for months. Today I had a lot of ambition, so began clearing out and going through things. Maybe I just did too much at once, because now I am sitting here sobbing. Mom saved everything -- every card, every bank statement, every bill, EVERYTHING. And I found silk scarves that still had her scent on them. Sometimes I can't believe she isn't here anymore. I feel so lonely, having no parents. No matter how old you are, you still feel like an orphan.
Thanks for listening.
