September 28

Today is the 41st anniversary of my mother's death. No matter how old I am every time this day comes around I am 16 again. I have never been able to resolve the issues I have. I continue to be a little crazy. I will always be 16.

Aren't we all a little crazy... and always 16?

Hugs to you.

Don't tell yourself you can't resolve issues. We all mellow with age and sometimes the person we are hardest on is ourselves. Best wishes.

It is okay to be sixteen one day a year, cut yourself a little slack. Tough thing for a teenager to go through. :)

Aw, I am so sorry I am late responding to this Jan! It is ok to be 16 again, and some issues are sometimes better left unresolved.

PS: Thank you so very much for asking if I was ok, that means alot. My email is in my profile if you ever want to email me, dear friend.

Hugs

My father has only been gone about 4 years, but I'm pretty sure I'll mark the day ever year for the rest of my life.

I'm sorry you lost your mom so young.

As Quakers say, this post 'speaks to my condition.' As you know, I was a few days short of 16 when my dad died. The day never passes without a kind of inner tribute and a grief hugged to my self. Sixteen again, yes. -- Carolyn
