Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s out there. I survived my first Mother’s Day without my Mom. The last week was very hard. Every other email I got proclaimed “What to get your mother!”. I just really just wanted to forget about the whole thing.

I had wanted to go to the cemetery unfortunately I posted about it on Facebook. I was hoping to go alone. I  do what I needed to do for myself there. My father and Not So Secret Sister replied that they wanted to go as well.  So instead of going alone, I went with Not So Secret Sister and Dad. It went well.

She now has a flat headstone but no grass around her. Hopefully they will put some sod down soon. My other sister was visiting as well and it felt good to see everyone. I suppose other Mother’s Days will be easier. I am happy this one is over.

    It must have been very difficult for you today. There is so much positivity surrounding Mothers Day but I always have a thought for how hard it is for those who have lost, or never even known their Mothers. I hope it gets easier and it will become a time you can remember her without it hurting so much xx

    I have been talking to a lot of people who have felt the same way after losing a parent. It totally helps me to talk about it.
