|Me and Mama; Baby Gerry’s footprints|
She was my best friend, more like sisters after I turned 18 than that strained mother-daughter relationship that a lot of women have. Every year around this time is hard for me. She passed in June, so next month will be tough as well.
|Who doesn’t love gifts to brighten your day?|
His sister did as well. They did a good job of keeping me in tears all Sunday. It feels good to still be considered as a mother. Boo Thang said, “just because he died, it doesn’t erase the memory….it doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen.” I’ve been learning through my support group that losing your child doesn’t mean you aren’t a mother. It’s nice to hear it from those you love. So Mother’s Day wasn’t bad after all. It actually was a great and beautiful day.
