I’m not ok and it’s ok. Monday was my mum’s 1st posthumous birthday and it’s been very rough for me, but I’m getting better, not like I have a choice in the matter. That rhymes 🙂
I took the day off and thought I was good, but on Tuesday while listening to the voicemail my nephew left on Monday asking if I was “ok as it was Grandma’s birthday” I began bawling like a baby. No, I am not ok, but I’ll get there.
To anyone else out there who’s experiencing a first without a loved one; first – birthday; anniversary; thanksgiving, christmas, end of year etc. ((hug)) ((hug)) ((hug))
Yes, we’ll get through this, but give yourself permission to grieve – it is a process. They were and still are an integral part of you and your life. Celebrate that!!
We got this!!
