To the Moon and Back

This is my first Mother’s Day since my mother died.  It’s been a rough few days for me.  I kind of didn’t expect it to be quite this hard.  I’ve been thinking about her a lot, feeling her presence, crying a lot.

She used to always send me a card on Mother’s Day to thank me for making her a mother.  I won’t be getting that card this year.  At least not in the same form I’m used to.  I’m certain she’ll let me know she’s there in some way.

I saved one of her cards from years ago, and it says “I love you to the moon and back” on the front.  It’s framed in my living room.

I wonder if she’s been to the moon and back now?

When I found this necklace at JC Penney, I knew I needed to buy it as a Mother’s Day gift to myself.  I used a gift card from my dad and step-mother to buy it, so it’s almost like it’s a present from all my parents.  I’m wearing it today and thinking of you, Mom, wherever you are!
