Mothers' Day when Mom Is Not There
I lost my mother on June 14, 2011. It seems like yesterday, though it has been nearly four years.
Ours had not been a great relationship over the years. We loved each other, but we did not understand one another well. I think that I understood her far better than she did me, as long as I did not allow the emotional side to take over my reasoning ability.
Mothers' Day, as a holiday, has become so commercialized that it makes it difficult for those whose mothers are no longer with us. I find myself reading the cards with tears streaming down my face, looking for the perfect card. I bought a card for her one year after she was gone.
Though she is gone, and I have nowhere to send a card, there isn't a day that passes that I do not wish I could call her to simply say, "I love you, Mom."
