It's not that I dont like this holiday.



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.

I cannot image and I certainly won't try to comfort you. When you have children of your own this will be a day for you and them to celebrate...until then just try a different tradition for this day, whatever it was that made you and your mother happy.

Sweet and special hugs to you today. I miss my mom too and my kids are what get me through. I wish for you many wonderful Mother's Days in your future to help ease the pain of your loss.

Love, Lanie J.

I get this feeling ever year, except it's on Father's Day.

Just sending you lots of hugs, as you remember her.

I actually thought of you this week and that it's nice you were around your family for it. I hope you had fun and I can understand why it would be a hard holiday for you. She must've been an amazing person cuz it wore off on you and you're pretty awesome.

I feel this way on Father's Day...even though we have kids and a daddy to celebrate. It's just not ever quite the same.
