It's only my first Mother's Day without my mom and it's both worse and not as bad as I thought it would be.


Dave2 - I think it’s so lovely you traveled with your mom even while she was in decline. I hope that gives you some grace.
I remember being angry that other people’s moms, these lesser moms, were still around and my Mom was not. That went on a few years, actually.
It is surprising what hurts and what doesn’t. The first Mother’s Day was okay, but then a few months in I had to write training on annuities, which have a death benefit. I read “death” a few too many times and fell apart. I didn’t expect that. Mother’s Day I expected.
