A Mother’s Day Tribute – A Motherless Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mothers out there, this is your day, and I will do my best not to bring you down. I wanted to do a tribute to my own mother, who I lost on December 15th, 2019.

Today is going to be hard to deal with all day. Usually, I would be cooking something special for my mom, and while I still will prepare a good meal, it will never be the same. I have not been the same since losing my mom, but as I come up to five months trying to find how to live without the one person without a doubt believed I would get my life back. I am doing surprisingly well. Not that I don’t want to cry every second of the day, but I am working through with my writing and graduate school. My mom would want me to continue to grow as a human being,

My mom was the most amazing woman in my life. She always checked in on me, and she made sure that I got my life back. She lived for her family and her children. Loving each of my brothers and sister in what they bring to the world. She never worried about herself, rather that of her many grandchildren. She will always have a place in my heart, and I miss her all the time. I will always love my mom.

I wanted this to be a short post because I will be writing another post on the 15th of May. After all, that is important to me. With that, I want to share this with the world. This happened the day my mother had her stroke. I had no idea how important this was until my mom passed.

What prompted this was me reading the chapter in my book that I wrote about how important she was in my life. I don’t know what drove me to read that one chapter on this day, but I reached out to my mom to tell her I loved her and how much she was a major part of my life. I don’t know why I lost my mom, but when she had her stroke, I never got to say goodbye while she was conscious. I know she is up there looking down and watching over me.

I love you mom.

Always Keep Fighting

  1. Hi James,

    I hope you managed Mother’s Day OK. Sending you love and support. It’s clear that you and your Mother were both very close to each other!

    I lost my Father when I was young, and Father’s Day was very difficult for quite a few years.

    I hope Mother’s Day gets easier for you. This is the first one since her passing away, so I hope in time you can remember the good times and the positive memories!

    1. It was not easy. I stayed in bed later than I like and it was hard to get going. But I found my center and was able to finish editing my story. Finish my grad school paper. So it was as if she wanted me to get going. I know she is watching t over me. I am sorry to hear about your father. I do hope it gets easier every year at this time.


  2. I’m close to tears reading this, moms are our treasure, and I believe that your mum would want the best for you, even if she is not around anymore.
