Relatively speaking

O.K. so maybe I should clarify “I’m fine”.

I’m tired.

I can’t turn my mind off.

I keep trying to remember what the last thing I said to my mom was.

I have to remind myself of the basic things in life.

I wake each morning hopeful that it will be the day when the fog lifts a little.

I had to take a nap before going to the grocery store.

I wonder if one realizes they are in shock, or if they have to rely on someone else’s assessment.

I’m not sure that I’ve brushed my teeth today.

I think I might take another nap now.

I’ve been playing way more Candy Crush Saga than one person should just to zone out.

Sleep, zone out, eat, nap, think about taking care of things, nap, zone out, pick up the kids from school.

So, yeah. Relatively speaking, I’m fine.

  1. Thea,

    Hi Friend,
    I am so sorry your mom passed away. It must feel so strange, I can’t imagine losing my mom even though she’s a handful. I am praying for you and your sweet family. You’re such a great person, wish we lived closer so we could hang. I love that you share your thoughts and feelings in such a raw and real way. Xo, Jess

  2. Thea, I am so sorry about the loss of your mom. We’re all here for you, with love and kindness.

  3. Oh….so sorry you are having a rough time! Sending hugs and prayers!!

  4. Big hugs. When I’m in your area for the Cupcake Run, I promise to give you a hug in person if we can get together. I can’t imagine… but I’m thinking of you.

  5. My love, thoughts and prayers are with you, my friend. The fog will lift, I promise. I’ve been through it with my dad. Just give yourself time to feel it. There is no right way or wrong way. Your way is the best way for you. It will get better. xo

    Prayerfully yours,
