My mom passed away almost 4 months ago. She had a heart attack Christmas night at my home. She fought for a few weeks and then finally passed on January 11th. She was the best mom, best friend, and the best grandmother anyone could ever ask for. My heart still aches and I am not sure that I will ever heal from this. I am grateful to have three beautiful children to give me purpose. They are the only reason I force myself to function. But, I am not happy. I feel horrible that I am so sad for my children. I want them to have a happy mom again. I am afraid that will never happen. I can't imagine living life without my mom... Everyone keeps telling me time heals all wounds. Of course this comes from friends who still have their parents. I just feel empty.
