Foto Pherrets - Change

After Mum's Funeral, originally uploaded by irish_church_lady.

OK we all look happy here. We are, after a celebration of a life well spent. We are also still in shock.

People in these shots: My older sis and her husband, my oldest daughter, my hubby, my aunt and uncle from Ireland, my granddog.

My Dad's not in any of these shots but he's doing well.

This is one situation where the adage "The more things change, the more they stay the same." doesn't fit.

Life has been permanently changed for me.

Deal with it Church Lady.

I'm trying.

I'm learning how to deal too. Let me know if you get it all figured out.

Lisa said...

I'm not sure if that's something we ever figure out how to deal wi th...Nobody in the world is like your Mum and nobody could ever come close to taking that special place in your heart. But I think you honor her memory very well each and every day in all the little things that you do. I bet that would please her. ::Hugs::

So sorry to read about the loss of your mom. Dealing with the loss of a parent is never easy.

Take care.

I'm so sorry to hear that your mom passed away. (Hugs) Here is a little Irish prayer for times of sorrow...

May you see God's light on the path ahead
When the road you walk is dark.
May you always hear,
Even in your hour of sorrow,
The gentle singing of the lark.
When times are hard may hardness
Never turn your heart to stone,
May you always remember
when the shadows fall—
You do not walk alone.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

It's never easy losing a parent, no matter what your age. You have my deepest sympathy.

Thank you for playing and sharing.

Mist - it's taking a long time. I must be a slow learner! hehe

Lisa - you always know what to say! Thanks for that and thanks for putting up with me! As a regular visitor to my blog, you already know that I still get into the "woe is me" frame of mind about my Mum because I miss her so much.

Caylynn - you're a new visitor of mine. It was about a year and a half ago that she died suddenly. But that's how she would have wanted to go so I am happy about that.

Dawn - thank you and ((((((hugs)))))) back

Tina - thank you for the lovely Irish Prayer. It's lovely and so are you! I loved your post about the origins of Halloween BTW. Really cool!

A - Thank you so much. It's comforting to still get responses like this, even though it's been awhile. It helps! :)

Tammy - (((Hugs to you.))) I love visiting your blog. I'm always guaranteed a laugh or some serious empathy BITCHIN'!!! LOL

Lady S - Thank you namesake!!! Do you know I think I will soon know more Debs in blogworld than IRL?

Teena - thanks Chica! BTW I can relate to your pic for change this week too! Elections, elections, elections...I'll be glad when it's over and all those signs are gone!
