This time of year, especially today is always a tough one for me. Six years ago today I lost my mom suddenly to a brain aneurysm that took her life. I struggle to get through this day even all these years later. I try to keep a brave face for my kids who really do not understand since my oldest was only 6 months old when she passed. Being a mom myself now I understand what she went through and the sacrifices you make to be a mom. I never got to say “Thank You”. I randomly say it here and there out loud as if she is still here but it is never the same. So to honor my mom today, the kids bought some artificial flowers and they decorated them yesterday. We do this every year, I think it helps them understand a little bit more when we go to the cemetery together with the creations they have made for her. After I pick everyone up from school that is where we are headed and then out for dinner. Today is one of those days that anything goes sort of thing. I don’t care if laundry is piled high, kids rooms are messy or if they eat ice cream for dinner. I just want to enjoy the day being surrounded by my kids :).
Now that my tears are flowing tee-hee I will move on to the shopping trips this week. My kids were sick during the beginning of the week so I was able to run to Publix on Sunday, alone! Yes alone! I don’t know how to grocery shop by myself. No one asking for a cookie, or saying “are we done yet?”. It was nice but I knew I had to make it a quick mini getaway since I left 3 sick kids with the hubby.
