I am a Mother who is still going on with life after the loss of my daughter at the age of 20 years to Influenza A 3/26/16.

How am able to do this? By the Grace of God I imagine. I do believe I have guidance from the Heavens. 

I took 6 months off work after she died. I really wasn't sure about continuing on with the business. I thought about selling and even had offers, but I never went forward with them. 

It is tough to say the least. I find myself on auto pilot most of the time. Even find myself surrounded by friends and find myself not hearing a word they say! I look at them and they know, they lost my attention. I apologize but they don't get upset. 

I have changed. The way I look at life has changed. That free-spirited gal I used to be is gone. She flew to the Heavens with Brittany. Don't get me wrong, I do laugh and play pranks. I just don't have anymore of those "inside jokes" with Brittany, anymore. How do I go on without them? I often wonder. I think maybe that was one of our "things" that I have to remember and laugh about. Still not telling anyone what they are! They will go to the grave with me so we can laugh about them together in Heaven.
