Day 71

I was invited to a pre-Mother’s Day lunch for other women who recently lost their moms. It was an unexpected invitation, but came at the right time since I’m in the midst of a hard week. While I didn’t say much, it was nice to sit and listen to others talk about not only their moms, but how they’ve been experiencing and feeling the loss.

I don’t know why I didn’t talk more. I guess maybe it was a combination of fatigue from the past week and just wanting to listen to other people’s stories. There is another reason that I just don’t want to share right now.

I really miss Mom and I miss being able to call her when I’m upset or confused. I’m doing okay for the most part, which can be heavily attributed to my friends and community that continues to check in and hold me up, but I just want my mom.
