Mother’s Day


It’s Mother’s Day and I hate it! It’s a day that just magnifies that Ben is gone! People calling just to see if I’m alright. No! I’m not alright! I want to cry, but whats the point? I’ve done that and he is still dead!

They call wives with deceased husbands widows. Children who have lost parents are orphans. But, the most powerful bond is a mother to her child and there is no name for that.

My amazing Samantha is trying to overcompensate because she knows this will be a hard day. The truth is, there is nothing that can be done to make it better. But, I love her all the more for attempting.

I spent my Mother’s Day at the cemetery.  It shouldn’t be this way.

But, I am one of the lucky ones because I have family and friends that would drop what they are doing in a moment’s notice to come to my side. I mourn my loss but I am extremely grateful for the people who surround me.
