We lost my mother Roberta Smalley to cancer a little over six months ago and I still have a very difficult time dealing with her death. Not a day goes by that I don’t wish I could talk to her one more time are spend some time with her but unfortunately that’s just not possible.
I love my mother even though she’s gone and I believe without a doubt in my heart that she is in a better place free from the pain and cancer. It’s just with all the television commercials, signs in stores, Facebook posts and tweets about Mother’s Day it’s making today especially tough for me.
The last few years of my mother’s life my mental issues drove me away and into solitude so now that I’m getting treatment for my bipolar disorder I’m full of regret about how awful of a son I must have been. I sincerely hope that my mom’s knows that I love her even though it was always difficult for me to express.
If your mother is still walking this earth do yourself a favor and tell her that you love her and spend time with her before she’s taken away from you. I don’t want anyone else to end up like me full of regret and sorrow for what you should’ve, could’ve or might’ve done differently if you only could turn back time.
So happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there who are reading this. Now I am off to try to find something to do in remembrance of my mother. Thanks for reading.
