It's been a very long day for me today.
4/30/2011 was the day my Mother passed away.
It's been two solid years since then. Somehow it doesn't feel that way. It seems shorter some days, sometimes longer. Either way, I'm still picking up pieces of myself. Its pointless to try and fill the void she left--there's nothing adequate enough to fill the space. Some empty places just stay empty because it hurts too much to try and fill them.
I still can't really bring myself to go into her old room.
My poor brother has it worse than I do, though. He still has terrible nightmares. But then, he had the unfortunate experience of FINDING my Mom. So yeah... Lots of trauma and issues there. But he is getting better, and so am I. We have each other.
Hug your parents today, if you are able. It may be your last chance.
Miss you, Mom. </3
