Mother’s Day, 2017

Sometimes I am surprised or amazed at how I can go through this holiday so casually. Except for loading a bunch of pictures on my Facebook page, I didn’t give a lot of thought about my mother, who made her transition on 11-26-2010 (and I even had the date wrong…I had to look it up). So what does that mean?

I don’t want it to be like the adage, out of sight out of mind. But, I don’t want to be like a friend who’s mother died before mine, but she is an emotional wreck on Mother’s Day and her mother’s birthday.

I know we all grieve differently.

And I don’t have to wait for a Hallmarks holiday to think about my mother.

I miss my mother.

Sometimes, I want to be able to share things with her…

But for the most part, I’m good.

My sisters and I took VERY good care of her during her last years. I have no guilt, remorse, nor regrets. What I do have, sometimes, is sadness, emptiness and loneliness. But each year, I feel like I am getting better…if that’s a good thing…

But you know what’s strange? This is not what I thought I was going to write about for Mother’s Day and as a result, it is taking several days to finish this….so I think that I’ll just stop…
