I did okay until this morning, and then it all came up and smacked me again. I miss her so much. Ironic, since she's been gone for more of my life than she was there for. My beautiful, talented, athletic, idealistic, altruistic mother, who never thought of herself in those terms.
I'll snap out of it. It's just that folks don't always realize that Mothers' Day can have a negative impact by hitting hard on one's losses.
