Today was a hard time for me. It is the sixth Mother’s Day without Mommy and this is one of the hardest days for me. Today and her birthday are the two days I need Tony with me. Of course, Tony had to work today, since everyone had to work at KFC today. Mother’s Day is a very busy day at KFC, so the rule is that everyone works. I had to sit in front of everyone, hearing how we should honor mothers and make them special because it’s their day and my mother isn’t here. I know taht it has almost been seven years, but I still miss her.
My wedding was another time I wanted my mother there, but I think from now on, I’ll be fine because Tony will be with me on my anniversary from now on! Right now, I am watching Bride Wars and I know how Liv felt. There are just some days I miss my mom and I don’t even know why, well besides that she’s not here. It isn’t always for a specific reason or anything, but I still miss her. I wish Tony could have met her, but apparently God had other plans. Well, my movie is almost over, I am almost ready to cry, so it’s time to close this blog. I love you Mommy!

Love you sweetie. Yes, there are days when the loss is felt more. I am very sorry that two of my son-in-laws did not get the chance to meet your mom. Sometimes wish I could clone myself to be with all of you on the days you miss your Mom the most.
I will not pretend to know what it is like to lose a parent. But knowing that you will never forget and cherish all the memories you shared while your mom was here keeps her alive inside. Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers here and looking over us!
I’m not going to pretend I know what it’s like either. I don’t see my mom on Mother’s Day, but I can call her and wish her well, so I cannot imagine how sad and lonely you must feel on Mother’s Day.
I’m sorry your Mother’s Days have clouds hanging over them. Perhaps in the future, you could start a Mother’s Day fellowship gathering for others in your situation so that you and they are not lonely on the day. We have a friend in common who just spent her first Mother’s Day without her mother, and there are at least 2 bloggers in the same situation, plus your sisters… might be worth a try to set up something for next year. Even if it doesn’t make you feel better, it will give you something else to think about and will help others feel better and less lonely.
I have tried and tried, but I can’t quite come up with a good comment here. I sort of share your feelings as I lost my father, but we were never that close as he tended to work quite a bit. I imagine losing a mother is quite a bit different but I won’t really know until that day comes.
It doesn’t matter how old you are, Moms are so missed when they are gone. I usually try to focus on the good times we had and smile instead of cry but sometimes cry is all you can do when you miss them. So while it doesn’t solve anything–Lots of Love & Hugs from your Aunt
Hugs. I miss her, too, especially on Mother’s Day, but also for strange reasons, or no reason at all. I think those no reason at all moments are when something happens that we would just like to share with her. Big things, like weddings, and new jobs, and things like that, but also little things, like the way my friend’s daughter call my chins “enchillas”, or when I want to know if the sewing needle I have will work on the fabric I’m using. I know it helps me to talk to her anyway at those times. And we go see her stone on Mother’s Day, and her birthday, and other times that I think strongly of her. If you ever want to go, we can take you, or go with you. Let me know.
Thanks. I’ll let you know if I ever want to go.
