CELEBRATING THE DAY - Yesterday we took my partner's mom out for a mother's day lunch because the crowds in restaurants today are out of control. We had a great lunch at a restaurant which was a hidden gem in a golf course clubhouse Apparently, not many thought of it, and it was really good. Those are the kinds of places that make lunches more memorable.
FIRST YEAR WITHOUT MY MOM - LIKE BEING OUT-OF-STATE- This is the first Mother's day without my mom, and several friends have mentioned how difficult it may be - well, because of my gift to talk to my mom and understand
WHAT'S IMPORTANT - What's important is that when our moms pass away in physical form, their spirit still comes back from time to time. If you don't recognize the signs, then pick up my book "Lessons Learned from Talking to the Dead" and learn what they are. Don't sit at home and pout. Your mom on the other side would say, "cut it out!" Go enjoy mother's day. If not for you, then go out in the world and do something good for someone and say it's in my name."
So, enjoy mother's day and don't dwell on the fact your mom may have passed. She's still around. Think of her as living in another state and you can't drive up there to see her. She can hear you. Just let her know you love her, and remember that she wants you to do something to enjoy YOUR day and even honor her if you wish.
