I can sympathise entirely with you. I lost my mother to cancer last year and mother`s day is the hardest time of year. You see all the advertisements in the shops and the cards and the gifts and it just reminds you constantly that you no longer have a mother or father to celebrate the day with. Everywhere you look you see all the items associated with the day and the pain and overwhelming feeling of emptiness and aching sense of loss engulf you as you know you will never have the chance to celebrate that day again and spoil your mum and dad and tell them how much you love them. I find every day without my mother difficult enough but mother`s day just seems to make the loss even harder to bear as you are forced to constantly think about your loss and all the adverts and cards just seem to be taunting you. I guess pain is the price we have to pay for loving our parents and is a measure of the depth of our love for them.
Even though my mom & dad passed in2005 i still have the urge to pick up the phone and call them, for example even last night when my daughter graduated college with her associates degree. i so wished they could have seen her. i agree all the advertisment. the worst day for me was my dad's last father's day and he had mom 's memorial on that day, his last fathers day on earth. i do find some peace in the fact that they are together again because dad was lost without my mom, he only lived 5 & a half months after mom passed, he wanted to be with her.i thought it might be nice if we could get a group of people together on here to help each other deal with the loss of our mother's especially on mother's day maybe send emails just to let other people know that we know how thwy feel. what do you think?
