A Mother's Day Reflection from a Grieving Mother
Mother’s Day is this Sunday. I don’t have to look at a calendar to know that the feelings I’ve been having these past few days are a product of grief. I look at my beautiful daughter and as I listen to her speak, I can’t help but feel so proud of the beautiful young lady we’ve raised. A smart girl who graduated from college with a successful life. She is loving, sweet, funny, determined, courageous, and gorgeous. I thank the Infinite Spirit (God, Lord, Shiva, etc.) for giving me the daughter I always wanted.
A Grieving Mother’s Story of Survival
My life was wonderful. I had three adult children, a loving husband, and a job I enjoyed. Until one day my life flipped upside down. My name is Debbie, and this is my story. One quiet summer night, my husband and I were getting ready for bed when the phone rang.
