It's just that I miss my mom.
If you see me, I will be sitting alone. And that's ok.
I don't need to be cheered up, or even comforted. Just left alone to think and remember.
(Unless you knew her too. Then please, stop by and talk a while).
(...just don't ask me to comfort you).
Someday when I have kids, this holiday will probably mean more.
But for now, it is one of the saddest days of the year.
And I guess that's ok, too.
