I thought it gets easier as time passes by.
But there are days when the memories seem so fresh as if they happened only yesterday.
It becomes more challenging as the reality starts to really sink in.
(In the early days of my grief it was all too painful but also too surreal.)
I feel my mom’s absence even more now as I face the fact that she will no longer be a part of my everyday life as she always had been.
And it is all too overwhelming, a reason to rely on God’s help and Mama Mary’s comfort even more.
But I am truly blessed to have a wonderful prayer companion in my sister.
We are each other’s prayer warriors and it really helps us get through this difficult time.
If two of you agree on earth about anything you ask, it will be done for you by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in My name, I am there among them.
~ Matthew 18:19-20
Healing takes time.
But it is possible.
One day I’ll get there.
He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.
~ Revelation 21:4
