You are right that you are questioning yourself because you miss her.
It's fine that you are sad and would be strange if you were not.
Grief is a very personal experience and each individual grieves in their own unique way. Striving to honor aging and death as a part of the cycle of life may not diminish the pain and sorrow we feel when our loved one is no longer with us, yet it can help us accept that birth, life, and death is the way of all creation.
I believe during times of grief it is important to focus on the positives of the time spent with the beloved person or pet who has moved on in their journey.
Concentrating on gratitude for the blessings given through whatever amount of time one had with their loved one turns emotions away from feeling sorrow for one's self and brings the focus on the joys of the memories we shared. Although we miss having that person/pet as part of our day to day existence, and the time we had always seems too brief, giving thanks for the time we were given is the first step in healing the pain and sorrow.
It is because of Love we Grieve
Because of Love we are also comforted
in our Sorrow
In Memories, may you find Healing
In Time, may you find Peace
In the Power of Love, may you find Comfort
