My Mom Just Passed Away
My Mom passed away one week ago. I had no idea how bad this would feel. It was unexpected - even though she had her health problems - we thought she would be around for another 10 or 15 years. We did talk on the phone the night before she passed. But I regret that we never talked about so many things - I took her to church every Sunday - to family gatherings practically every weekend - at least for the last couple of months - but we never hugged or said, I love you. Her passing has melted this emotional barrier that existed before - I would give anything for a second chance to show my Mom how much I loved her. I feel like I should have done so much for her. How does one get over the guilt?
