On the eve of my first Mother’s Day without my mom

This is a hard weekend. I know I’ll get through it because I got through the first Father’s Day without my dad, my kids have done years of Father’s Day’s workout their dad, this too shall pass.

But it’s hard not to miss her on a weekend dedicated to mothers.

Lots of people stepped in to help me and the kids when our lives fell apart – but leading that charge was my mom. I don’t know what I’d have done without her. She helped me stand up to Mr. X, not just emotionally but financially as well. We held each other up after my dad died and we were both trying to adjust to a new kind of normal.

The boy, the Bear, and I went for a walk in town today while the girl played ball. Right where our creek meets the Bow, there were a ton of crocuses – I needed to see those today

Life goes on, life is sticky and complicated, but our lives are also full of love. The love will get us through.
