    I lost my mother last month. Although it was not unexpected it was still painful and difficult to deal with.

    This video is touching and honest. I love you mom.

    I don't know what I'd do if I couldn't sing anymore. I don't think I could live with it.

    Condolences to your mom, sdg and your aunt, Doug. icon_neutral.gif

    Whew, girl. Tears were running down my cheeks by the end of that video.

    The human struggle to find meaning in our existence, especially in the face of death.... is so compelling. And so sad. And so oddly beautiful. At least this man found his meaning.

    The pain of losing a mother is unmatched by any other loss. I applaud you that you are still living your life and reflecting on her memory. She must have done a good job in raising you based on what I see here. I'm sorry for your loss.

    Sorry about your mom. My dad's birthday was August 25th and his mother (my grandmother) died that day. I miss them both!

    The saddest part of that video, as if ALS isn't bad enough, is that after 'teaching' to 1000 people a week, his phone quit ringing. I know that feeling. After being active and a leader (spiritually and socially) in my church for over 30 years, I had no more than 5 people contact me when I divorced and left. I feel for this guy but he learned that really, it's all about one on one. That's where the true love is found!

    If you were closer by, I'd give you the biggest, tightest, yet tenderest hug you could ever receive.

    Until then ...

    *hugs*

    OMG, I can so relate to this. I'd be driving down the road and a song or a thought would just bring me to tears. I had a tough time getting over my mom. It was well over a year when I finally was able to accept that she was gone and I was happy she was no long suffering (died of Alzheimer's).

    Hang in there and know that there is no 'time limit' to grieving. Take as long as you need, she was obviously a very important and special person in your life! Hugs!

    I agree. Grieve lots. There's no harm in over-grieving but there is harm in undergrieving.. it can tie you up years into the future until you deal with it. There's no much danger of over-grieving anyway because when you're all cried out, there's nothing to do but blow your nose and keep going.

    Such a weird society where we try to stifle a person hit with tragedy because it makes us a little uncomfortable seeing them sad.

    Tears are progress.
