Big loving hugs to both you Patty and Shannon.. It is almost two years since my mother's passing... I miss everything good and bad.. most of all the hugs... give yourself time to grieve.. we all push trying to do more than we may abe able to... if you can let things evolve rather than trying to make them happen.. allow yourself time to rest and heal.. be out in nature, perhaps write your feelings in a journal on a daily basis..
careigiving changes us in ways we may not have imagined... things we we drawn to prior to caregiving may no longer serve our needs.. the transformation, the healing, the reclaiming of our own life is a journey that we discover along this road of living...allow things to be revealed to you... keep us posted..l
richest blessings and may your healing be gentle and nurturing
