Two years ago today my mother died.
Although I worked creatively through my own grieving process and have found a beautiful way of honouring her by helping others, I still feel the sadness when this day comes closer. Plus there is still a little bit of guilt that I wasn’t there in person when she died and I want to give space and healing to these feelings again in the next couple of days.
While you are reading this I will be at the coast of Nova Scotia near Peggy’s Cove. I will be sitting on the rocks, writing a letter to my mother, and remember all the laughs and tears we shared together.
I remember our wonderful travels through Greece, Spain, Germany, and Nova Scotia. Her adventurous spirit when she went onto a wale watching boat with me knowing well that she might get seasick in the middle of it. We had a blast. (smile)
