Mother's Day was both sweet and painful. I cooked breakfast for family and friends and did a little wandering around town. That was the good part.
The painful part is the Mom part. In the last great transition we will be cleaning out their childhood home and even though they've left it there's still a lot of sadness involved. The feelings are hard, especially when I'm seen as the reason for the loss. I grieve too, this next week will be hard.
But, I made the decision not to live my life for the happiness of another. It's the only way I can be healthy in mind and body. It's not the easier path and sometimes it feels like my heart is breaking but I can only hope.
Don't wait around for other people to be happy for you. Any happiness you get you've got to make yourself.
