I still feel the need to cook or clean everything as she was there. She usually spent quite a bit of time in the garden, so every now and then I check on it as if she was there.
Lastly, I mean no disrespect, but I feel almost everyone is closer to their mother than they are to their father.
Hi, Highwayman300. I'm sorry for the loss of your wife. That must be so hard, being without your partner. How long has it been since she's passed?
I wonder when or if it stops - the expectation to see your loved one after they've gone.
And yeah - I loved my Dad, but a Mom - that's a tough one. At least it was for me. I loved her in a totally different way. And as a daughter, I think there's a special bond there too. Again, at least that is my experience.
I hope you are finding a little more comfort and strength to go on without your wife. My heartfelt sympathy to you.
