The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"
The first year is so hard. My dad has been gone 15 years and sometimes when something happens that I think he would enjoy or sometimes when I just feel like I need to talk to him I pick up the phone to call him. Some things are just imprinted on our brains. You may need more time to heal and adjust because by being her caregiver you not only lost your mother but your "job" and even to some point probably, your identity. Those are some big holes to try to fill in your life on top of grieving. I pray that the new year brings healing for you, and Beverly too, as you find a new normal in your lives.
