My head tells me it’s real. My heart still hasn’t quite accepted it. I guess since it’s only been slightly over a week since she’s been gone.
I do take comfort that she is at peace and has joined my father in the afterlife.
I went to the store to buy things I needed and saw all of the Mother’s Day displays and started to cry. I know that it will be easier later on but this first Mother’s Day so soon after her death is very hard.
I turned the television off because of the ads for Mother’s Day.
I find myself wanting the day to be over with. I love my children very much and appreciate the sentiment of Mother’s Day but I know that my mom will be close to my heart throughout the day.
Sympathy cards are arriving in the mail. I know that it’s wonderful to be thought, I do appreciate them but it makes me so sad to read them.
