But Possibly the World's Worst Daughter

Life made me an only child

I still haven't called my Mom yet to say Happy Mother's Day.

I am dragging my feet this year more than usual. I know I need too, and I even want too, but today is a painful reminder that I am the only one left to call her to wish her well on this day. I am sure it is the same for her and I hate the thought of making her feel that way, of having a conversation where we both pretend that everything is ok when we both know what is missing from this day.

Happy Mother's Day Mom. From the both of us.

How hard for both of you.

I can't imagine how you are feeling.

Bon courage and mes condoleances as they say in French.

Merci beaucoup :)

I did call and we did get through it. That's life I guess, sometimes just different than you had planned it to be...
