I just finished my Mother’s Day sessions from my new workspace.
I will probably move all of this around soon, but for now, it’s lovely to be surrounded by plants while I am in medium mode.
I hope this Mother’s Day finds you well… and if it finds you in mixed spirits, you’re certainly not alone.
It’s Mother’s Day in heaven, too.
My own mother’s funeral was five years ago, yesterday. It’s been quite a journey, since she passed. I’ve changed, my relationships have changed, and I think that’s an important part of moving through loss – finding out who you are, now, and accepting all the change that follows.
I can look at albums of family photos now, without feeling sad. That, in itself, is strange, because we associate the acuity and persistence of our grief with love we hold for those we lost.
I feel like now, I can love my mother in heaven with less of the grief. More of the good stuff. So today is not so much a sad day, as a day to remember her, her guidance, and her continued presence in my life.
Happy Mother’s Day, to all the moms in heaven, and here on earth.
