Re: i thought i was coming apart
My mom died Easter Sunday. I am having a hard time too. Basically I am trying to ignore the fact that it is Mother's Day. The other part of me knows I am going to miss her terribly. I feel like I have cried and cried and cried and the tears just seem to keep coming.
But what I am going to to instead is call one of my sisters and tell "Mom" stories. My mom was quite a character and we have some great stories to tell about her. I don't want to cry about how I am feeling lost. I want to think about the things she did to make me feel good. The things she did to make other people feel good. And the funny things she did just because she was such an enjoyable person to be around.
Why not trade stories with someone about your mom? You will cry but you will probably spend more time laughing.
