I’m back

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

  8. 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.

  23. *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.

  24. 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

  25. 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 💖

  26. 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. 💚🙏

  27. So sorry for your loss Irene. ❤

  28. Thinking of you during this corona virus. Hope all is well there.
