I can't help myself

I am missing her today, of course, of all days. Memories are flooding my brain, emotions are running high.

These days don't happen too often anymore, but this particular week, for the past few years, has been especially rough, and luckily every year I seem to be getting a little better. Progress, I guess.

I won't let the anger and sadness overwhelm me today, but I'll let them settle somewhere. I have fun plans today, and I'm going to do my very best to not let them get in the way of me having a good time.

And I have the greatest husband, who listens to me, even in the wee hours of the morning.

It is a great thing to be missing your mom. It shows how much you loved her and miss her. Anniversaries are sad, but you are strong and your tears tell your mom what she meant to you.

Hugs to you, my dear. I know this time is tough for you. It is wonderful to honor her memory by remembering her so fondly, even if it is sad. You have so much loving support around you, and you are such a strong woman. You have come so far, and it will only get easier. Love to you always.
