  6. Oh. Oh, Julie. I didn't know.
    I saw these happy pictures of you and this lovely woman, wearing the same kind of shoes, wearing the same smile....
    Then I smiled. I was wondering where you've been.
    Then I cried.
    So, so terribly sorry to hear this. Sounds like you had a strong bond, and a lot of love in your heart for your very own dear mother.
    I will be thinking of you and sending you whatever light I can.
    We love you, Julie.
    xx

    1. Thanks, sister. I cherish your words. My mom and I did alot of exploring....alot of wandering the back roads together. I know I will always have those memories, but it does not begin to take away the pain.
      Thanks for being there. xx

  7. Oh no. I was wondering where you were too. Was hoping you were off having a late summer adventure.
    Such awful news Julie. I am so very sorry for you.
    What to say? When you've had such a close bond to your mother, and they leave this earth it hurts like hell. Like a void has opened up, and all of a sudden they've gone.
    The love remains though. The love you felt and shared doesn't die, it stays with you.
    Not everyone is fortunate to have a close and loving relationship with their mother. That is something l realised when my mother passed away last April. I am grateful for the time l had with my mother, and the relationship we had. It was something special, and at many times in the past almost 18 months l have felt her close by.
    It's comforting to feel that she's still with me, but man.....what l wouldn't give for another cuddle or conversation.
    Wishing you peace at this difficult time. xx

    1. Thanks so much, my friend. What I wouldn't give for another adventure, another walk through Old Town, another day taking pictures together.
      Even though she had been battling cancer for a long time, this was so sudden. It's still raw. Thanks so much for being here. xx

    2. Raw is a great word to describe that feeling. I understand exactly what you mean.
      Big hugs from the other side of the world. xx

    3. Sadly, we both understand the raw pain of losing our mom. Hugs to you too. xoxo

  9. Oh Julie. I'm so very sorry for the passing of your mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Please take care and God bless. She'll always be with you. My father passed almost 9 years ago and he still lets me know he's around by leaving dimes in strange places. There's such a thin veil between us and them. xoxo
