Thinking of You on Mother’s Day

Many people have shared that it feels awkward wishing me a Happy Mother’s Day knowing how difficult this day must be. That is true. Even though I miss Drew every day today feels especially painful.

Friday when I spoke with Drew I asked him if it felt weird for me to wish him a Happy Birthday knowing he’s in prison. He said yes but he still liked hearing me say the words. It just wasn’t a happy day for him.

That’s kind of how I feel. I like to hear the sentiment because I know it comes with love and acknowledgement that I am a mother. I also feel pain today more deeply than on most days. That’s just the reality.

If you know a mom who’s having a different kind of Mother’s Day and you don’t know what to say to her then I suggest just asking her, like I asked Drew on his birthday.

To all the wonderful, loving, caring moms reading this post, Happy Mother’s Day…or Thinking of you on this Mother’s Day, whichever feels right for you.
