Say How Much You Love Each Other

Hello, my dear friends!

It's been four months of pain, sadness, depression, anxiety, and asking myself many questions.  Questions , which I really do not have the answer to.  I feel lost at times and it's ok.  I just let myself be and that makes me feel better, there is nothing to rush to.
It's weird in many aspects, because I realize people don't want to hear it.  I've stopped going to some places, which they have dared to tell me I speak too much about my son.  What the heck do they know?  If you have not gone through it, you can only imagine it.

Sunday is mother's day and it's the first one without my son.  It's going to be be very difficult, but I'll celebrate the fact I was given the grace and privilege to be his mother.  If you've followed my blog for a while, you know I have two daughters who are divine and we love each other very much.  I also have three wonderful grandchildren, who give me so much joy.  But, you know,  no child replaces the other, that I guarantee.

I want to thank you for following my blog, even though, after my son's departure, my writing has been limited.  I wish all of you a very happy mother's day.   Enjoy a good picnic, brunch, or dinner, and make sure you say how much you love each other.

I love you, all.

This dish is so good!!!   I assure you, your family and friends will shower you with compliments :)
