Ashes: Pt 1

My mom died.

The relentless one.

The one I’ve lived a lifetime it seems, trying to please.

And failed.

Jennie Griffiths. RIP.

You were a tough love. But you were the only woman who felt like Mother.

Sad. Confused. Completely.

Been a bit of a struggle to get back here since the news. Lots of feelings swirling and fogging up the windshield. Working thru it…and Wow is all I’ve got.

Can’t see clearly right now.

But I’ll be back.

  1. It’s been a year and a half since my mom died. I’m just feeling some balance and strength. I’m sorry to hear you’re going through this. Be good and patient with yourself. The fog will clear, it will just take time. xoxo

  2. T I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to send my condolences to you for the loss of your mother. I had kept this post in my email for when I had a moment to read it and it got other emails piled on top of it. Anyway, I hope you’re hanging in there and doing better. Sometimes losing someone we had a complicated relationship with is harder than letting someone go that we get along with well. You’ll probably be processing this for years to come. Sending you hugs and warm wishes and hoping that you gain some peace and clarity through her passing. Take care!
