Writing this letter to my mum in heaven isn’t easy. But it may help you connect to your loved ones who can’t be with you any longer.

A letter to my mum in heaven

Writing this letter to my mum in heaven wasn’t easy. Although for some people, it may seem absurd to write a letter to someone who passed away, to others, it may be just the perfect way to document their grief. It’s not that they expect an answer or that someone would really read their letters, or even that they would send them. But it may help them connect to their loved ones who can’t be with them any longer.

At least once a week I used to call my mum, usually at the weekend, and I still miss our calls so much. It felt so empty after she passed away. Suddenly I didn’t have anyone who I could call on the weekends. How would I spend my weekends? It was a part of my weekly routine that wasn’t there any longer. So writing a letter to my mum in heaven is a kind of substitute for the weekend calls. And whilst for many years I would be too overwhelmed to write a letter to my mum in heaven, especially on the anniversary of her death, with the years that have passed I can now even smile whilst writing it.

Writing a letter to heaven

I addressed this letter to my mum in heaven. Nine years already that she has been looking after me from there. And she has done it so well, with love and care, as always.

All I could do now was write this letter to my mum in heaven and tell her that I still love her so much. I miss her so often, yet I had to learn to move on with my life. It took me a long time to understand it. I needed time to grieve, time to heal. And it’s not that I’ve forgotten now or that my love is weaker now. No, it isn’t. The point is that after years I realised that I had to let go.

So I wrote this letter ‘A Letter to My Dear Mum in Heaven‘ on my Journeyofsmiley Blog.

Whilst writing this letter brought some sorrow to my heart, there was also a smile on my face when I thought of my mum. Of all the memories of us, I treasure. It still hurts not to have her here, but now the tears of sadness are lowered by those of appreciation and gratitude. My love for my mum keeps me going and living life in memory of her.
