She knows my mum died a couple weeks ago, and keeps putting her hand on my elbow and saying "bless you" whenever I tell her anything at all, as if I'm not strong enough. It's really irritating and patronising, as if I'm not strong enough, or "weak". I'm doing just fine, thanks, and a lot better than you think I am. In this case, I was telling her when the funeral is - which she asked me to do.
Why does this older "woman" keep saying "bless you" to me?

She is Probably the only God Loving 'Older' Woman around who Not only Feels Bad and Sad about Mom, but Really... Cares.
Good luck and I am So Sorry for your Loss.1
she's probably just very religious. In saying this, she's not saying you're weak or beat down. She's saying she realizes how strong you are in this time and it really touches her to see you keeping it together. Don't take offense, she doesn't mean anything negative behind it.0
