TFB12, sorry for your loss. May your Dad rest in peace.
I lost my Mom 9 years ago and it still hurts, but we have to move on because we need to take care of those who still alive (including ourselves).
Glad to have you back, always enjoy your artwork! In fact, one of your images is background on my laptop. So I owe you royalties.
Thank you for the kind words. And yes, you make a very good and valid point that we must now move on and take care of those who are still with us, including ourselves. I know it was a long time ago but I am sorry you lost your Mother. It is difficult to accept that your parent is no longer on this earth. Very strange feeling to have.
BTW, just curious which image you are using on you laptop background?
I know this is harsh, and I certainly don't mean to sound insensitive, but losing a parent is the natural order of things. I have lost both of mine and both my beloved inlaws a long time ago. What would be worse would be losing a spouse (Thankfully, I still have mine after 50 years of marriage), but by far the worst would be losing a child. (Again, thankfully, I have not had to endure that.
So, as horrible as it is during the grieving period, we must realize that it is the natural order of things and move on with our lives and helping those around us.
If this sounded harsh, I didn't intend it that way, so blame it on poor phraseology. I just wanted to add a little perspective to this terrible situation.
My sincerest sympathies.
I think everyone deals with this stuff differently, I get it and agree with most of what you posted. It takes time, so many things that was shared on a regular basis has now changed. One of the hard parts is watching each member of the family grieve in their own way. Watching my kids miss their grandfather, my siblings struggle, my Mother try and adapt to living without her husband, my father, are all difficult to watch along with the struggle I have with losing my father. I know this is a progression of life and things will get a little better as time goes on. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
