Goodbye Mom

Posted on March 14, 2008 @ 11:01 am

I have just completed the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life. I have gone through all of my mother’s things and given what I didn’t want away. She passed away a couple of months ago and if I could have hired someone else to do this task I would have. In fact, I even considered that, but in the end, I knew it was something I had to do on my own.

There were several days that I had to leave because I came across something that meant so much to her. Like the day I found the photo albums of her parents and that day that I found the Will Barrow and Learn Master Piano course. She loved to play her piano and she was the biggest fan of Will Barrow.

I have finally made it through everything and the house can now be listed for sale. That will be another hard day, but I thin that it will help me to move on. I know that she wouldn’t want me to be so sad and I am putting on a happy face just for her. I can’t help but wonder if my own little girl will have to do the same thing one day.

    I understand exactly what you went through. My Mom, too, passed away and the saddest part of all was going through all her belonging, everything that was near and dear to her, and deciding what to keep and what to donate. It was like dismantling her life, item by item, and all the memories they brought back was overwhelming at times. I just wanted to close my eyes and make it all go away, but that was not an option.
