Mother’s Day 2019

Santas workshop me two kids                                          Around 1977-78

 

My first born made me a Mother.

My second born made me a Mom.

This will be my first Mother’s Day without my firstborn.

My second born is feeling his absence as much as I am. So is his Dad.

To all the Mothers, and others who’ve taken a mother’s place,

and have lived through the loss of a child…

It’s sad.

It’s weird.

It’s uncomfortable.

It’s debilitating.

It’s soul-sucking,

heart-wrenching,

and it’s out-of-order.

I don’t know what to expect. I will try to focus on who I have more than who I’ve lost.

{I know he’s sad, too}

My first born made me a Mother.

My second born has me as a Mom.
