Today is the 1st day in many months that I've felt at peace with her passing,  and I chose to rejoice in her not suffering anymore.
She passed on the 1st of this month, but started her decline in October.
Although it took her 3 months to pass after realizing her decline, taking care of her during decline was probably harder for her than me.
She tried so hard,  and all I wanted was for her to be happy and healthy,  and not to try for me.
I'm holding on to this feeling for the day as I know there will be other waves of grief.

Yes, the waves of grief can be debilitating but you already know that. Please keep posting here as this Forum is filled with like-minded people that are going through the same thing.
