When Life Gives You Lemons

When Life Gives You Lemons

Hi Lovies,

Yesterday was Mother's Day and while I am a mother, this day isn't the same for me anymore. This will be my third Mother's Day without my beautiful Mom who was called to Heaven almost 3 years ago. You would think it would get easier but unfortunately for me is hasn't. Losing my Mom was one of the hardest things I have ever had to deal and continue to deal with everyday. So while I am super sad on Mother's Day, I continue to celebrate her memory and thank god for all the wonderful women in my life. Whether their mothers or not, I am thankful for the special role they play in my life. My mom always told me not to live in the past but to embrace what the future has to hold for us, and that's what I do now. I will always continue to miss my mother, that's never going to change, but I will celebrate the now and all the blessings that I have. My heart will remain heavy on this day but it's good to know that I have friends and family to help lighten the weight.
