Who would have thought that I would go through a period of mourning about the sale of mom's house? Apparently I am not the only one.
Grief "The loss of a home is one of many significant life changes that can cause lasting heartache, says Nancy Stutz-Martin, a psychiatric nurse practitioner and a grief recovery specialist. "We do form relationships with inanimate objects, including houses. Your home is a place of comfort, security and self-identification. You form emotional attachments to a house, because you have so many memories within its rooms"
I know my youngest son is dealing with it too. Several things he said yesterday while we were there at the house and he was working like a trooper, let me know that he is feeling the pain too. My daughter keeps it all in, but I am sure that she's trying to deal with it too.
Gosh, it's hard.
