Its been sixteen years since my mother had died, so Mother’s Day doesn’t hit as it would if I had a parent. Grieving is a weird thing, because it doesn’t move us the same. I find myself being less sad in general, but there are times, I am so sadden, its hard to think of anything else than her not being here. With Mother’s Day upon us, its just a regular day. It wasn’t until about two years ago, that I even acknowledged the day, and wished it to others.
So I am going to take the time to wish everyone who is a mother, a Happy Mother’s Day. To those of us, still trying to navigate what it means to live life without having a mother, continue to be whatever you need. Please remember to lean on those who love you, love on them a little harder today! I Love You, Always
