This is beautiful.
I stayed quiet on Mother’s Day for many reasons. One, I lost my Mom almost five years ago. Two, I lost her exactly five months after losing my father. Losing one parent is hard enough, losing a parent you were best friends with is like losing a part of yourself. I can talk about it on a one-on-one level most of the time, but in general, May is not a good month for me in terms of loss, so I decided keeping my mouth shut was best, lest I ruin someone else’s day with my emotions.
Hope everyone had a good celebration.
