my heart is broken....



On the morning of September 16th my brother called from Connecticut to tell me that my mother who had gone into the hospital earlier in the week had gone into cardiac arrest.  While trying to rush to be at her side and only making it as far as Chicago, I received a second call that she had passed away.

 I. miss. my. mom.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom. I was coming from far away too when my mother passed away and I got the call when I'd thought I'd made it-I had just landed.

She'll always be with you in your thoughts and heart.

Hi Christine...I happened upon your blog last night. Your experience is very similar to my own. I lost my mom on January 16th this year. She had been admitted to the hospital a week before with pneumonia. I also received a call on my way to see her that she had gone into cardiac arrest and passed away.
I know everyone grieves in different ways, but this year has been very difficult for me. I have gone through all the emotions. This time of year is the worst. I miss my mom so much. My heart went out to you when I read your post and I have been praying for God to wrap His Arms around you and give you comfort and peace. I have been reading in Psalms and it has helped. {{Big hugs to you from me}}

Found your blog this morning, I'm desperately searching for an easy quilt to make in less than 48 hours, so I headed to quilting blogs and saw yours at Milk and Honey Quilts. We lost my dad on July 9, 2011. Surprise and shock - wasn't expecting that. It's not the same and I never realized what a hole losing a parent would make in my heart. God bless your days and nights.

I'm so very sorry about your Mother...I lost mine May will be 4 yrs. I fell like it was only yesterday. Your lost will never go away. All my before loved ones are gone. I have loved all my memories.
I share with my grandchildren all kinds of stories. And as I tell them the stories get sweeter and sweeter. My tears never stop. But oh!!! the love for them still grows.
If you know God...pray, because he is the great comforter...And life goes on....the circle is never broken until Jesus comes for us....My prayers and love of a beautiful Mother for you .....
