This is such a hard time of year for me. My mom passed away suddenly in her sleep 8 years ago on May 12th and this year Mother's Day also falls on that exact date. Some people say that time heals all wounds but that's a wound that will stay fresh for the rest of my life. I'm going to try to enjoy the day but it will be hard. We are allowing difficult child to come here for brunch so I'm stressed about that as well. Not only do I get to to deal with missing my mom but I get to be reminded that I failed as a mother as well. Yay! Gotta love it!
