I finished mom’s shawl. She looks beautiful in it, it is her colors, and it drapes just perfectly over her shoulders like a hug. I hope it brings her comfort. We are all home now after dad’s funeral. I am exhausted. It is exhausting to mourn. I know this is normal and expected and all that, but it is not easy. I miss Dad. I miss Mom the way she was with Dad. I am not ready to be the older generation, I want just a little longer being my father’s daughter. I am just sad, that is all.



  1. I’m sorry. It’s always hard to lose a parent, even if he or she has been struggling for a long time. The shawl is beautiful, and I hope it brings your mom comfort.
