I understand how hard this can be for someone. I believe you are a very strong woman and will get through the hurt that your heart is feeling right now. You need to remember all the good times y’all had together and think about how she would want you to be right now. I may not know her, but I believe that she wouldn’t want you to be crying. She would want you to think about her being in a better place, not hurting at all, happy with whomever she has up in Heaven with her, and think about how wonderful and eventful her life was with you. You are allowed to have all the emotions that you are feeling. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise she is your mother and that feeling won’t change even though she may be gone. With much love. – Lydia Rivera-Mayo
