Thank you to everyone in the blogosphere and in the real-lifeosphere who have been so incredibly supportive of my family and I through this journey. I have a feeling that my blog posts going forward will have lots to do with MY MOM and the grieving process.
There is a lot to write. For the moment though, all I can manage is to describe sitting in this nightmare from which I cannot awaken. It started when I landed in Los Angeles to the news of my mother’s death and though I have slept and taken some naps, I just cannot get out of it. Fortunately, MY DAD and THE DIVA and I are in this together and we have been surrounded by loving family and friends. If there is anything that makes these past few days tolerable it is the amount of love coming our way. Thanks for sending it. I’m sending it right back at you.
Until then, happy (AMERICAN) Thanksgiving. Remember to tell the people you love just how you feel about them. Now. Don’t wait.
That’s one thing you can always be thankful for, Ellie. You and Jessica ALWAYS told your mom how much you loved her. That’s the greatest gift you could have given her, and being a mom like that is the great gift that she gave to you.
