the big secret

The big secret I referred to on my blog last month was that my mother was in hospice care. That's why so many of my June posts were about death. My mother and I had been estranged for years, but we managed to say a loving good-bye when I flew out to California during the first week in June. At her funeral last week, my main emotions were peace and gratitude.

Hi, Regina. I have to admit I wanted to post earlier on your Mother's passing, but was unsure what to say because of your previous post "What not to say ...". But now I just want to say I wish you continued peace. Regina W.

My mother and I were estranged, so all I felt was peace and gratitude when she died. I won't say that burying her was one of the best days of my life because that shocks people, so I'll just say that condolences aren't necessary for me. But I thank you all for thinking of me!
