Bittersweet Mother's Day

Mother's Day this year was hard for me. My dad would have been 82 years old on Mother's Day. Two years ago I had 2 healthy parents, and now they are both gone. It's hard to explain how I feel. Empty I guess. My daughter came to town and we had breakfast together. She will be a mother in 2 months. It is exciting talking about the little boy she is expecting. Yes, life goes on.

Patty, I just read your title of your post and realize that you are a Godwink for me today as I just posted a blog entry that is reminiscent of your entry. I appreciate your heart and your ability to show the spectrum of yesterday's celebrations and emotions! Em

My mother passed away the Sunday after Mother's Day last year so I know the feeling.
