I live on the East Coast - not where the worst of Hurricane Sandy hit, but definitely affected. This is actually the second hurricane here since my mother died in Feb 2011, but this one has left me feeling really sad and alone. On the one hand, I am glad that I did not have to worry about my mother and how she was doing, but I realized that there is no one else who would have me as their primary concern...Others have checked in with me (and I with some other people) but it is not the same as being the main person in someone's life. And my mom was a 'news junkie' - she was always up on what was going on in the world, and we freequently were together in the aftermath of big events and watched the news together. I am really missing 'sharing' this event with her. I've dreamt of her the past few nights, I am sure because I have been thinking of her so much.
I know that this feeling will fade, and I know my mother is in a better place...just missing her tonight.
