I Have No Mother For Mother’s Day 🙁
|This was taken in Epcot 3 weeks before my mom passed away.|
Happy Mother’s Day! For most of us it’s a pretty good day. I still enjoy it. My three children always put a smile on my face Mother’s Day or not! I try not to dwell on the fact that my mom lives in Heaven and I live here on Earth, but when Mother’s Day comes around it really ignites so deep and sad feelings.
A few years ago, it would be what I called a pretty bad year. Although I am always thankful for the small things, it was a year filled with sickness, car accidents, and death. I think that it’s never easy when it comes to your mom and losing her. Being an only child made it pretty rough. It was pretty shocking, too. Considering I left her in the hospital one week after her knee replacement and spoke to her at 9pm on the phone to say goodnight. My last words to her were “Call me if you can’t sleep, since they cut off the hospital phones after 9pm for call ins…Love you..”. That was the last time I spoke to her. When the phone rang at 11:30pm- two and a half hours after talking to her, of course I assumed it would be her on the phone. It was pretty shocking to answer the phone and have a doctor on the other end of the line. When it comes to manners, I think sometimes some doctors need a little extra schooling. Within one minute into the conversation I was informed that my mother passed away suddenly and was pronounced dead minutes before the call.
My heart sank and my life changed forever.
Meanwhile my husbands mother, my mother in law was also in the hospital and had been since her surgery.
Nine weeks after my own mother passed away, my mother in law passed away. My husband and I had both lost our moms and my three children had lost their both grandmothers within 9 weeks of each other. Not to mention that a few later our family dog, Muffin passed away.
So this Mother’s Day I will celebrate and I will be thankful for the time I had with both my mother and mother in law. If your mom is still here, give her a hug from me…since I can’t give my own mom one.
Happy Mother’s Day to ALL the Moms, Grandmas, Godmothers, and women in our lives.
Celebrate the love…hugs and happiness…Diane xo
