Mother's Day was tough for me also. My brother took my family and myself out to dinner but all in all it was just another day. Today was a really bad day for me. I have dreams at night that stay with me for days - all include my mom. Not really nightmares just dreams with her in them. Sometimes she is ill in the dreams and other times she is ok. So I know what you mean about missing your mom and the memories hurting. My husband and I both think of telling my mom something that happened - like we used to look forward to telling her things that happened during our day. I too would give anything to have my mom back. I know she is happy in heaven with my grandma, grandpa and uncle but that doesn't make it any easier. I sound very selfish don't I?
I just think of my mom constantly. It seems that everything triggers memories of her. Maybe because she lived here while she was ill?
It does help me to write my feelings and thoughts here. I look forward to continuing reading posts and helping anyone else I can.
