A new outlook...
I haven't enjoyed Mother's Day for over 9years since my mom passed away 9yrs 2 months ago. It is amazing how some holidays are so hard to get thru and how they are landmarks too. Healing time takes a very long time. For years I have been tortured with my mom's memory and wishing that my step-kids would realize that I'm not their ememy. Both things I have no control over, and have to make the best of what I have than what I don't have.
This week-end has been wonderful.
My husband and 20yr old daughter spoiled me with LOTS of time together and a few nice gifts.
I'm so glad we had the time together. I wouldn't trade it anything.
So here's to a new outlook that sticks around.
I'm hoping your week-end was wonderful and if you have your mother around give her a big hug from me.
