This week has been tough -

Mom passed a bit over 6 months ago, and I thought I was starting to crawl out of the hole her passing landed me in. She was 81, and my best friend. It took 7 weeks for her to pass, and it was rough in many ways. I made it through Christmas (her favorite), only because I think I was still numb.

Then the ad's for Mother's day invaded my space - And I found the deeper pain renewed. I guess I still haven't got to the point of cherishing the memories of her delight of the little gifts my sisters and I so proudly presented when we were young.

So I turned off everything that had ads - and played everything that doesn't go to Mom and daughter. Godzilla movies, Sci-Fi, Animation - just tired of hurting.

But Sunday is Mothers Day, I will put a candle and Lilacs before her draped Urn, and cry some more.

Never miss a chance to tell your Mom you love her. I wish I could again.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
