Thank you all so very much for your kind comments yesterday. My heart breaks for all of us who are without our moms, especially those who are dealing with a recent loss. And those who lost a mom at a tender age. And, well, let’s face it, no matter our age and no matter the circumstances, it’s a blow.
I have 3 things that happened yesterday that made it easier, though.
- Hannah called. I told many of you who commented yesterday that this happened. I never expected, when I recommended that those of you with a mom call your mom, that I would get a call, too. But my girlie came through in an amazing and unexpected and totally loving way. She told me that she loved me and was proud of me and that she was grateful to be my daughter. There’s nothing better than that and, aside from not being able to tell my mom about it, it was a perfect moment.
- I got flowers from my friend Rose. Even though she is super busy with her own family and running her own business, she stopped by after work with a lovely bouquet of tulips and daffodils. Just because. And that’s what makes Rose one of my favorite people in the whole world.
- An evening with Jack and his mom and dad. Who can be sad with that little face grinning at you? And, you know what? My mom would absolutely adore him.
So, yeah. It was a hard day . . . but . . . YOU all helped and my family and friends helped and . . . you know what really helps? I’ll never have to go through the 20th anniversary of my mom’s death again. So there.
Happy Thursday, friends. If you wrote a post for today please include your link below!
