Lost Days

Sadness from laughter

“I love to hear you laugh.”

Tonight caught up on missed episode of The Big Bang Theory. When the episode ended, I continued to laugh and remembered mom saying that to me. It usually followed the question, “What were you watching that was so funny?”

As I had mentioned previously, my mother in the end of January. I’ve been wanting to write about it for a while, but was scared away about trying to write too much. I’ve decided to write shorter posts as the mood hits me, rather than one long diatribe. I feel it will be more cathartic, and keep the posts meaningful.

I need to thank all my family and friends that have reached out to me over the past month. I know it hit them just as shockingly as it hit me. Talking with some other friends who have lost a close relative, I realized everyone has felt or will feel the loss I feel at some point in their lives. It’s one of the many things that connect us together across sex, age, race, and culture.
