The process of mourning

Mourning is defined as “the period or interval during which a person grieves or formally expresses grief, as by wearing black garments.”

Whoever defined the word “mourning” never had a baby. I have found it so hard to mourn my grandma’s death while caring for Jack. When I get emotional he does too. It’s so much easier to care for a happy baby.


Sometimes I cry in the shower…sometimes I wake in the middle of the night finding it hard to breathe. I can’t believe both my grandparents are gone. I’ve realized took my time with them forgranted. Stupid me. I guess I’ll learn…For now I’m enjoying my son. My little piece of Heaven…my joy.
