Oh Melissa, please don't apologize for anything....I can't even imagine loosing my mother...It takes time to go through all the phases of grief. Don't even give it a second thought about the cards, those who know you, know how it hurts you that you haven't done that yet and people are more sympathetic and empathetic than you realize. You have been in my prayers so much as well as your family. Let's face it, you will never get over loosing your Mom and don't let anyone tell you you will. But for sure and the great things is, is that your morning will become less and your sweet memories of her will come center stage. I am honored knowing you through these difficult times in your life because it gives me a chance to bring you and your family before the throne of grace and pray, pray, pray....I'm just so blessed to have met you just being a Proverbs 31 devo reader and have really clicked with you ever since that email about what you went through as a child. We are sistas, girlfriend and we are here to encourage one another, hold one another up, pray for one another, laugh with each other, and cry with one another. I am truly blessed knowing you. Maybe one day, I'll get to actually meet you in person, who knows???
May our great God and Savior grant you continued peace and joy, because we all know that the "Joy of the Lord is our strength", and I read so much of you on FB and through devos about what a joyful person you are...
