Sadness

It is with a feeling of utter devastation that i write this post. My wonderful mum, who was a big part of my crafting life and mentioned often on this blog, she left us yesterday afternoon, completely unexpected.

I miss you so badly already mum. I love you and have always loved you deeply. You were my rock and my best-best friend.

When I read your blog and saw that you always said 'my wonderful mum' I could see what a very special relationship you had with her and how she supported you and shared your projects. You must be totally devastated. I am so very sorry. I wish so much that I had some comforting words to say to you, but we both know that nothing I can say will ease this pain right now. I am reaching out a hand, I hope that helps a tiny tiny bit. Much love Irene xxx

claire93 said...

Wendy, I join the other ladies, to say how sad I feel for you. Words won't help to ease the pain or loss right now, but I do know what you're going through. My Mum died 31 years ago, and I still think of her, every single day. You had a very special Relationship with your Mum, and were so close. May all the memories of the wonderful times you spent together live on.

lizenquilts said...

Deepest condolences to you and your family.

Do not concern yourself with us here. Take every bit of time you need.

Sending a warm, virtual hug to you.

Jo Darby said...

Oh my friend, I am crushed to read of this great sadness. It made me cry and remember when I found my own mother on the kitchen floor, too late. One of the things I admire in you is the perseverance you have shown this past year or so I have been following your blog. Probably the main shock of it all will wane in a few weeks, then comes deep mourning. It's a hell of a place to be but I know absolutely that by putting one foot in front of the other each and every day you will get through it. The pain never truly goes away but it does get easier to bear. I will be thinking of you every day and sending you warm thoughts.

Christine Altmiller said...

I am so sorry Wendy ~ I am keeping you in my warmest, most healing thoughts.

Magpie Sue said...

Oh, what sad, surprising news. I'm so sorry for you. I wish you could feel the hugs that are being offered you through the internet. Wish we could do more to support you during your grief. I know your mom will be irreplaceable in your life.

Sharon - creativity and family said...

Oh Wendy, I'm so, so sorry. I haven't been about on here much this year but I've just found this post. This is such a hard time for you. I know a little of what you're going having lost my dear Dad very suddenly a couple of years ago. I hope you'll find strength and peace in this hard time. Your mum seemed nearly as much a part of this blog as you as you do often did things together. Sending you so much love and posing for you, friend. Sharon xx
