Sunday Scaries: A Mother’s Day Without One is Not For the Faint of Heart

Something a little different today for the Sunday Scaries. Today is Mother’s Day, which used to be a happy occasion. We’d almost always go to my grandmother’s apartment and jointly celebrate her, my mother, my aunt, all the moms. Obviously, that’s not the case this year, after mine passed suddenly in January. I wrote about losing my mother here right after it happened, but in the ensuing four months, this has always felt like a scary day. Her birthday was last month, but outside of family and a few friends, no one would have known that. Today, however, is a day where almost everyone else gets to be happy and spend time with the woman who raised them. I don’t get to do that, so the horror is quite real today. That being said, this is mostly just an excuse to say that you all should appreciate your mother and tell them that. It’s going to be a tough day for me, one not for the faint of heart, but that shouldn’t be your story.

Truly, I want everyone to enjoy their day today. Whether I do or not is irrelevant, but I sincerely hope you do. We rarely appreciate people and things in this world until we lose them, so try to not do that. I’ll be spending part of the day with my grandmother, who I do still have, so even if your mom is gone, if you have someone, be with them. It does help.

So, hug your mother today. I wish I could…

Awards Radar wishes everyone a happy Mother’s Day. Tell your mothers that you love them!

Lovely words Joey and I hope the day went as well as it possibly could. I lost my Mum three years ago and every Mother’s Day since has been tough although it does get a little easier with each passing year. I hope that helps a bit and wishing you all the very best.
