As you might know, I have been away for a while
I traveled to Denmark, as my mother was seriously ill. Unfortunately, she didn’t survive and died the 24. of February
I’m grateful to have been there for her in her last time in this world. I was in the hospital 24/7 and slept in same room too, to support her best possible
She did wake up, when she heard my voice and had a time becoming better, before her health was worsening again. I feel grateful to have been able to be there and to hold her hand in her last days and in her last breath
We kept the ceremony for her Monday in this week
I have opened my shops again and will start posting new jewelry in here too in short time, if possible
Please bear with me, if I don’t visit as many blogs, as I use to at the moment
Remember to appreciate your family, while you have them

Thank you. ❤
So sorry for your mother, Irene! 🙂
Thank you very much, Paul.
much love to you and your family! ❤
Thank you very much, Annette.
I am so sorry for your loss and glad you were with her when she died.
Thank you very much Cindy. I’m grateful to have been there in that time too.
Irene, I’m very sorry to read of the death of your mother. It is good you were with her.
Thank you very much Gary and I feel good to have been there.
So sorry to hear of your loss my dear Irene 💜😥💜🙏🏽
Thank you very much, Ritu. It was too early, but the best for my mother in the situation, she was in.
Thinking of you 🤗🤗🤗💜💜💜
I’m glad you’re back. And my deepest sympathies.
Take your time, I’m sure we’ll all be pleased to see you when you are ready, and understand you need time.
Thank you very much, dear Don.
Please, accept my condolences.
My mom passed away last year, February 22. So, it’s been a year.
Loosing mom is loosing the safe shelter we have had for the entire life. There’s nobody after that between the abyss of darkness and us. Mom has been protecting us for the entire life and when she is gone, we are on our own. That is a painful realization.
It is a great privilege you were with her.
I know that nothing replaces mom and no words help heal faster or better. After some time, this loss hurts less, but memories certainly stay forever.
It probably feels difficult at the moment, but after a year or so it should be better and only the great memories will prevail.
Thank you very much, Inese.
You are right, it is a tough situation to stand in.
For my mother, it was the best, as she would not have been able to return to live on her own in her house again. She would never have accepted that, why I think, this was the best for her.
I’m very sorry for your loss, Irene. I know your presence must have given her comfort. I had been thinking of you and wondering where you were.
Thank you very much, Wayne. I hope, that she felt the comfort too.
Very sad to hear about the death of your mother. I’m so glad you could be with her until the end.
Thank you Peggy. I feel glad, that I was able to be there too.
I’m so very sad Irene. I appreciate you sharing this. How wonderful you were able to be with her and that she knew you were there. I am glad you both had that time. I hope you are surrounded with comfort at this time.
Thank you very much, Colleen. I was surrounded with comfort, while I was in Denmark by my son and his family.
I’m glad to hear this. It had to have been difficult to leave.
You are right.
So very sorry to hear of your loss. How wonderful that you made it to your Mum’s bedside
and that you had some time with her at the end. So hard. Big hugs.
Thank you very much and yes, it was hard to be there.
I am so sorry for your loss Irene. But what a gift to have been with her at the end. Take all the time you need to grieve and heal. My thoughts are with you. Sending love and hugs 💛
Thank you very much for your kind concern, Val ❤

Irene I am so sorry to hear about your mother’s passing. I am glad you were able to be there with her. May your memories bring you comfort at this time. Love LIsa
Thank you for your kind concern, Lisa. I do feel glad, that I was able to be there.
Oh, Irene, That must be so hard. Having lost my parents, I feel great empathy with you. Anyway, deep sympathy.
Thank you very much, Michael. I lost my father 22 years ago and now my mother too. I’m the Nestor in our family now, which feel strange.
I offer you my thoughts and prayers Irene.♥️
Thank you very much.
So happy she knew you were there. So sorry Irene for such a profound loss. Hugs!!!
Thank you so very much and you are right.
I’m walking besides you my dear friend and you know my heart. Much love to you. 💙
Thank you for your kind support, dear friend ❤
My dear friend💜 All I can say is that I am happy you were able to be there with your mom at the end. It is painful, and yet so important to your mom…and to you!
May love caress your soul as you work your way through grief. I know everyone handles this differently, but I wish peace for you. Much love to you, Irene💜
Thank you very much, Lorrie.
I’m down with an influenza or so after I arrived home. At least I feel, that I get more energy day by day, even if I could use lots of energy right now. Much love to you too ❤
Feel better, Irene. I am praying for you, friend 💜
Thank you Lorrie, at least it is in the better direction now ❤
I’m glad you could be with your mom in those days and having you there helped in her having a peaceful journey. I hope your days are filled we with much peace and comfort, my dear.🙏❤️
Thank you Sylvester, I hope, that you are right. I will travel again in the beginning of April to get her urn down in the soil.
You’re welcome, Irene. I hope when that time comes it is peaceful for you.
So sorry for your loss❣️What a blessing that you were with her dear sister ❣️❣️
Thanks so much sister. You are right. Take good care of yourself ❤
*tears in my eyes* What a blessing you were able to be physically there for your Mother, Irene. Know from me that in the years to come, you will be so grateful for this time with her and many lessons, unknown right now, will emerge from this experience. Life kept me from being with my Mother when she was dying. I still cry over this today but the light in all that, my Mother truly understood why I couldn’t leave. BIG (((HUGS)))!!! during this time of such heart break! Sending my love to you, Amy xo
Thank you, Amy.
I do feel grateful for being there for my mother in her last times and last breath.
It wasn’t easy for me to travel too, as Odin has an aggressive cancer and we never know, when his health change for the worse. For now he is good and pain free, but this can change in a day. This time I was lucky to find a good place for Odin to stay with animal loving human souls. If all go well, he will stay there in April too, when I need to travel to get my mothers urn in the soil, which is usual in Denmark.
My mother didn’t want to ask me to come, as she knew that Odin was sick too. She was awaiting for him to leave and then thought to ask me to come. This much too late…
Much love to you too ❤
I’m so very relieved for your sake you were able to travel, Irene. I still go through guilt at times but, I’m only one person and having a dying Rocky at the time made it clear there was no way I could travel. Hubby did not have the ability to take care of him.
Take things slow. The grieving process is just that … a process. I am so truly sorry for your loss. Loosing a Mother changes your life forever. xo
You are right Amy, now I’m the Nestor in my family, which feels strange.
I couldn’t be there for my father and I do mind about that from time to time. I did forgive myself, as I couldn’t do anything to change that situation in that moment.
At least I was able to be there for my Grandmother, when it was her time, which I’m very grateful for.
My reactions aren’t started yet, but I suppose, they will come, when everything is over and I can relax a bit again.
When it is time for your emotions to be known, they will, my friend. No worries. Your mind/body knows what is best for you. Grieving is hard! (((HUGS)))!!! xo
You are right, Amy ❤
I am sorry to hear of your loss, Irene. I know how hard it is to lose you mother. I am glad you were able to be with her and she was able to know you were there too. xo
Thank you Deborah, I was also glad to be able to be there.
I am very sorry to hear about your loss, Irene. I am glad you were given the time with your mom and you could be with her in those important days. Important for both of you. Sending you much love 💖
Thank you very much for your kind concern, Erika ❤
Sending you a big embace 💖
Dearest Irene, so sorry to only just now come and read your sad news, I am just glad that you were able to be by your mum’s side and she perked up for a short time knowing you were there.
My deepest condolences dear Irene. My thoughts are with you. 💚🙏
Thanks so very much, dear Sue.
I feel grateful for having been there.
Much love to you ❤
💓🙏💓 much love Irene and take your time with yourself 💚
So sorry for your loss Irene. ❤
Thank you very much, Mavis.
Thinking of you during this corona virus. Hope all is well there.
Thank you Deborah. I’m feeling better now, but it is a tough one to go through.
Take good care of yourself and yours.
So you are saying you had the corona virus? Glad you are better!
I don’t know for sure, as my doctor didn’t want to test for it. I think they are in lack of resource and only test and treat the most serious sick people. Thank you and take care of yourself.
