Hi Janet ~ Just popping in with some extra (((HUGS))) and letting you know that I am thinking about you hoping that today was just a little bit better.
I am having a hard time because tomorrow marks 1 month since I lost mom. I miss her so much and it doesn't even seem like a month has gone by....the pain is still the same.
I ache to hear her gentle voice and feel her arms around me but I know that I won't. The only comfort seems to be in the many memories I hold in my heart.
Mother's Day is approaching and I would just like to let it pass right by. My mom always sent me a card on that day, her day to be honored, with a hand-written note telling me what a wonderful mother I was to her two granddaughters and thanking me for allowing her to share in watching them be mothered all of these years.
This year I will have no card from her....and my heart will ache because I won't have her around to honor, at least not in the way I would like to.
I guess we can only take one day at a time hoping it will get easier.
Hoping that you are able to be a bit distracted with your children who are a blessing.
My two daughters have been such a blessing in checking in on me and making sure I am okay. They are away at college and making a point of texting and calling more than the usual.
I find that quite comforting and hope that you do too with your children.
