I am starting to step out of my comfort zone. I am now volunteering at my synagogue and am thinking about volunteering at the hospice that Mom passed away at. I have seen many friemds and have started yoga as well. I am very sad and my heart will always be missing an important piece but I realize that I need to start to live my life.

It's been such a crazy few months. Mom will be gone this Friday. I miss her so much.
I have been busy trying to think about my next steps.. Ie moving and cleaning out. The trip down memory lane is hard but has some rewards. I found my monogram necklace (which I misplaced and is shown in the photo).
The weekends are hard. I keep busy so my mind does not wander!

I love jewelry! A friend of Mom's invited me over for dinner the other night and she had a stunning bracelet on. I asked her about it and she said that it was an Xavier Derome. Xavier Derome is a high end eyeglass company from Paris. The frames are made from acetate and so are the bracelets. The bracelets are stunning and come in many color combinations. They sell them in Philly at a store called Eye Bright on 19th Street off of Rittenhouse Square. I got a tortoise one yesterday and just adore it. Are you a fan of the chain link? I know that I certainly am. It too my mind off of my grief for a few minutes.
I am doing better. I have been to synagogue quite a few times this week and it has really helped to be with fellow mourners. I am less weepy and am grateful for that.

After a few very weepy days I realize that faith has will get me through this time. I have gone to synagogue several times in the past week and it is helping. I also realize that I need to take care of myself and stay away from toxici people. I am not ready for that.

Sorry to say it was not a great weekend. Between the power outage and getting rid of Mom's car it was a very emotional weekend. Don't get me wrong I saw some friends, went to synagogue and shared some nice meals out but I was weepy.
I spent some time this weekend with someone who was kind on the surface but said some very hard to take words. Let 's face it we know who we are. We know the good. bad and ugly things about ourselves. Sometimes we don 't need to be reminded. I know that I am alone and unmarried. I also know that the greatest gift that I gave to Mom was companionship. I may be lonely but she wasn't and I am so grateful!

The last few days have been rough but today was better. I find myself weeping more than I was. The reality of Mom being gone has set in. I will be honest- the first few weeks after Mom died I was drinking wine every night to calm my nerves. I made a vow not to drink during the week and the weeping got worse. I made the right long term decision but the short term effects are hard to cope with. I am heading back to the gym tomorrow. I am looking for strength but am confident thst I will find it.

I am blessed to have wonder friend, neighbors and work family. Last night was my first power outage being alone in my house. The rains were downright scary and I have to admit I cried like a baby. I was scared, alone and feeling sorry for myself. I miss Mom terribly and feel so guilty that I was not sitting there when she died. I always promised her that I would be there for her then and I was not. I am ashamed about that.
Enjoy the holiday and God Bless America

The last few months have been hectic , exhausting and surprising. Grief is a process and it is different for everyone. You never know triggers the tears. So imagine my surprise when a neighbor on my street of five houses announced that they are moving today. They are downsizing and I am happy for them. Change is hard now.

Hobby Lobby today. Now mind you I was a political science major so I understand that the ruling is not about Hobby Lobby but about the fact that employers are not required to supply birth control through the healthcare plans that their employees can choose from. This disappoints me. When will it ever stop? What will be next? This is not a good thing in the eye of rights for women. How do you feel about this?

I adore bakelite. My Grandmother passed a lot of bakelite down to me and I enjoy adding pieces. Today I was able to pick up this stunning bracelteat the flea market in Lambertville. I went with my neighbirs and then we enjoyed a lovely lunch out. I am so grateful for everyone in my life.
