A blog about the grief after losing a child to Niemann Pick, Type C, a rare disease, and how I'm moving forward with my life.

Another Mother's Day

Mother's Day was yesterday.  My Facebook feed was covered with pictures of moms with their kids or adults sharing memories of their moms who have died.

I also saw many people post about remembering those moms who don't have their children with them...due to miscarriages, stillbirth, accidents,  or diseases.  I hope more people realize that this is one day that will always be difficult for these moms.  Having a living child does not change the fact that there is one (or more) that aren't alive.

I spent my weekend doing fun things.  My mom took me and my daughter (and the guys too) to see Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood Live in Friday night.  If you don't know what I'm talking about, you don't have toddlers.  Then Saturday morning was spent with Elsa and Olaf.

Saturday evening, we ran to the store so I could pick out a pot of mixed flowers.  While there Shelby picked out a Mother's Day card for me.  It had Cookie Monster on it.  And she was upset when my husband took it away to sign it.  That simple act...her picking a card...brought tears to my eyes.  Both happy and sad tears.  I realize with the little things she does like that, how much Dan really couldn't or didn't do.

So on that note, I hope all the moms had a wonderful day, in whatever form that takes for you.
