What My Mom Would Tell Me Today
My mom would tell me that it’s okay that sometimes I get so caught up in work, that I go hours without thinking about the fact that she’s gone. That it’s normal that it’s not until I get in my car to drive home, when I pick up the phone to tell my mom about the latest craziness in my job, that I realize that I can’t call her.
She’d say that it’s NOT okay that I get so caught up in work that I throw up.
She’d tell me that today, 10 years after another very important woman in my life left us, is a day when it’s okay to be a bit of a mess.
