Losing someone you love is so painful, especially if that person was an anchor in your life. My mother died five years ago .I let myself grieve and knew that no matter how bad it hurt ,time would gradually ease the sharpness of my sorrow. This is what has really be done.I always remember her but I rarely cried about her loss. Time had cured me a lot. Today ,however ,as I was tidying a drawer I came across some personal things of hers. Then I started crying for more than an hour.Then ,even when I stopped I had the feeling of loneliness so strong that I became a wreck for the rest of the day. Is it normal for me to cry like a small child for my mother who died five years ago.Is it normal for a woman like me ,married with three grown up children?

Of course it´s normal, she was your mother! You will probably find yourself reacting the same way in another ten years if you come across more of her stuff. It is really hard to lose someone close to you and especially a parent. The grieving process is never completely over, you will always miss them.

Deffinetly it is normal, people don't forget and that's why the pain, the sorrow like joy and happiness,become active every time you remember it. Guess what would happend if we forget completely things, people, objects, animals, we would have no problem with those feelings like sorrows, but not with happiness, which is the good part of life. cheer up, your mom is fine there, I am sure.

A normal cry is not that easy, and time is the best medicine.
