Oh, I love this idea.

My updates are kind of a bummer, but there’s growth there.

My mom passed last November a day after her 70th birthday and it’s been a lot to process. I miss her so much. Always. Every day. She’d been happy and healthy until she had a car wreck 18 months before she passed. And her body just…couldn’t keep up.

The loss of my mom had fundamentally changed me in ways I never expected. And I’m one of the first in out friend circle to lose a parent in adulthood. I feel like an outsider amongst my friends because they don’t know what to say.

I’m not even sure how to articulate it. But I’ll love to know how others have dealt with this stage of life.

And I have a therapist and she’s great and helping, but it’s hard.
