This makes my heart sing. I lost my mom 17 years ago..It hurts. I know. Thank you for your post. Welcome back.

Love this piece, Jenn. So succinct and poignant. I spend a lot of time trying not to be my mom, but I suspect that would change if I lost her.



What lovely sentiments. My mom has terminal cancer and I continue to struggle with how I will feel when she dies. I appreciate your sharing so candidly.


What a beautiful post and tribute to your mother.

Imperfect Mommy

I am so pleased that you are back ... and slowly starting to process what has happened. Take your time and know that everyone is thinking of you.


And here I was, complaining just recently that I was becoming my own mother.

Thank you for putting things into perspective. And we're glad you are back.

You have captured so much of what I have felt over the last seven months, since losing my mom last November. It is such a hard thing to approach in writing, and I have often found myself writing "around" my mom or avoiding certain topics because the feelings or thoughts are so complicated. And seeing myself become more like her is something I continue to struggle with.

So sorry for your loss.
