    Sending love and hugs…I am so sorry for your losses.
    I have been quite lucky in my life. The only person really close to me to die was my Grandad. He was ill, it was expected and it did feel like it was for the best but it wasn't easy to let him go…
    I don't think time is a healer…I think we just learn to deal with our grief x

    Hi Anne, what a thought provoking post. I am lucky that I still have both my parents close by, and they are both fit and active for their age, but it's when I read something like this that I realise that I shouldn't take it for granted that they are there and should probably see them more often.

    The loss I remember breaking my heart was a close Aunt, she was quite young when she died, my cousins were teenagers at the time. She was one of the most lovely and funny people you could ever meet. We all knew it was coming, but that didn't make it any easier. I still remember taking the phone call from my Uncle who was devastated. Yep, twenty years on and I can still feel the sadness of loosing her.

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.

    I'm a younger one in an older generation family so I have experienced a lot of loss. Couple that with in laws and friends and I've been to over 13 funerals at last count. I agree that time makes grief easier. Only easier in that you don't have the tears anymore. It doesn't stop the heartbreak though. And the damn right injustice of it all. I don't feel that ever goes away. I would do ANYTHING to have a day with so many people again. Or just a chance to say a proper goodbye.

    So sorry about your mum. I'm so grateful to have my mum still but we both talk openly about the fact that she isn't getting any younger and I honestly cannot guess my behaviour when that dreadful day comes. I know it will be a loss like no other. I do feel I will be strong for those around me but we all have to take our own time to grieve huh.

    The quote at the start of your post just sums it up perfectly

    I cannot imagine the loss of a mother. My best friend's mother is currently losing her battle with cancer and it's heartbreaking. Thank you for sharing your story #tuesdaytreasures

    I'm sorry for all the losses you have felt Anne, I'm not sure if time heals but it does help to ease the pain I think. It gives you space to think past the pain to the wonderful memories instead. Thank you as always for linking up with #TuesdayTreasures

    Beautifully written and having just come back from an uncles funeral I needed to read this (sometimes being behind in link ups pays off huh?) I'm sorry for all your losses but mostly your mothers as that seems most cruel. Xx #tuesdaytreasures
