I've been an on and off member of this site for about almost 4 years now. My mother died in her sleep on May 12, 2005 at the age of 57 and needless to say it was the most devastating event that has happened to me in my life. I've had my ups and downs over the years regarding her death...mostly downs...but as time goes on I find that I'm not quite as sad. Yes, I miss her with all of my being, but I don't find myself crying as much as I did since she died. Lately I see signs of her in day to day life. I feel her presence at times. It's weird because I'm not the type of person to imagine things like that. There are a few specifics but it will take more time than I have right now to post. Thing is...I'm going through some tough times. Do you think that she's sending me signs to comfort me or am I imagining these signs as a way to cope? Any input would be appreciated!
